Local Teen On National TV

18-year-old Helena Hunt is one of four teenage girls being profiled in Lifetime Televisions new show, Chasing Nashville.

She lives in a cabin outside Clyde in Haywood County. Hunt says the network found her last year though her chorus teacher at Tuscola High School.

She says it's exciting to be part of the show.

"Coming from where we are now you know in the country going to Nashville like showing our journey of howwhat it takes to make it to Nashville," said Hunt.

Hunt started playing the banjo when she was 9-years-old. 

"My Dad always let me listen to like country and bluegrass and I always liked the sound of a banjo," said Hunt.

Ideally, Hunt wants to combine her love of wildlife with her music, knowing the soundtrack of her life isn't just one note. She's studying wildlife at Haywood Community College.

"So I would like to make songs myself that make people happy or that make people want to hear them," said Hunt.

Hunt says being at home grounds her and she credits her family for keeping her life in perspective.

"I wouldn't have been able to do all of this without my family because they're constantly there and I know they always have my back," said Hunt.

Chasing Nashville airs on Lifetime TV Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
