“Why Don’t You?” ~Susie McEntire


Why Don’t You

I met Susie McEntire when I was in Jr High.  That was well a few years ago lol.  I will never forget the first time I was asked to babysit for Susie.  Pastor Wade Markham from Cowboy Junction Cowboy Church had asked me if I would like to babysit for her while she sang at our church.  I of course said YES….I was upstairs changing clothes, and changing and changing lol. My mom hollered up stairs and asked what in the world I was doing.  I told her I don’t know what to wear.  She said “She puts her pants on the same way you do, she don’t care what you wear”  This was not reality to me as a kid of course.  As I grew up and learned about life, heartaches, ministry hurts and such I knew what she meant.

We sometimes get it in our head that ministers, singers, sports heroes and public figures do not have the same life we do. We think somehow they are immune to things from the small dilemmas of figuring out what outfit to wear for the day to abusive relationships and divorce.

As I was growing up Susie and her music got me through a lot.  I remember standing in front of my mirror with a hairbrush or curling iron in my hand as my mic and her music blaring.  Of course I was singing at the top of my lungs with her.  I always kept her autographed photo in my locker at school to remind me to make good choices.   I had big dreams to be involved with Cowboy church ministry and music.  Susie was my inspiration to not give up on those dreams.


I was blessed to interview Susie yesterday and she said a very powerful thing to me.  When she asked God why He didn’t do something about a situation, He said “Why Don’t You”  Those words really hit home for me.  We find ourselves wondering why God doesn’t do something about a lot of different situations in our lives, when sometimes all He is waiting on is us.  Susie shared that she was at a point in her life where it was time for her to take a leap of faith and do something big.  Sometimes it takes big and bold movement on our part to get to the other side.  If we look at the miracles in the Bible God always had them do something bold and big.  Noah built an ark, Moses threw down his rod, Daniel refused to bow to the king and Jesus said Yes!  So today as you listen to Susie’s testimony of overcoming and answering God’s question, ask yourself if God ask me Why Dont You are you ready to say I will.

When I started doing interviews with artist I had a dream to interview the one lady who inspired me to doing what I was doing.  I have said many times I sure would like to interview Susie.   A couple of weeks ago I finally after asking God to help me with my dreams many times decided it was time for me to take a bold step and just ask. Imagine that.  If we do not ask we can not get…I emailed her office and we set up the interview.  This is a big part of God’s dreams in my life coming to pass.  When God says Why Don’t You I want to always say I will do whatever it is.

Below is my interview with Susie McEntire.  Please take sometime to listen to this powerful interview as well as a testimony.  Susie shares how she began her music career, how she overcame an abusive marriage, to how God continues to make her dreams come true.  Susie gives some great advice to those who are in ministry and trying to keep their marriage and families strong. This was something she said in the interview about marriage that will forever be with me.

  “If you two are not right, then the ministry is not right”

What’s New With Taylon Hope?  


Last year I was blessed to do an interview with Miss Taylon Hope. I decided it was time to catch up with this young lady and see what Gods doing in her life in 2016.

Taylon I was so blessed to be able to interview you last year. Can you share with us what you have been up to since we last talked?

My current single “She Prayed Anyway” is #17 on the Power Source Inspirational Charts for March. This year I am super excited to be planning to record a new EP with all new songs! Hoping to have that out in early Fall of 2016. I can’t wait to be back in the studio and working on some new music. I am really praying about the songs that I choose for my new EP as I really want them to make a difference when others listen to them. 


Do you have a hobby outside of your music?

Yes, I do have several hobbies. I am a clogger and dance with a great team of cloggers. I have always loved dance and in past years I did ballet, tap, and jazz. Now that I am traveling so much performing with my music I had to choose one area for dance and I chose my clogging team. I also do Tennis in the Summer and its a really fun sport. 

I love the outfits you where at your events!  Do you have a favorite brand or store you like to shop at?

Thanks so much on the clothes! I really love shopping and looking for unique clothes for performances. There is a local shop in my hometown called Sophia Grace and I love to shop there especially for their dresses. I love to shop at Rue 21, Aeropostale, and Gap. I have an amazing friend in my hometown here in West Jefferson, NC. Her name is Angel and she is an amazing seamstress and she has been so great to help me design my dresses for special formal events. My hometown is great and they have been so supportive with my music and I love them all very much!



Where will you be at over the next couple of months?
4. The next few months are going to be busy. I have several performances coming up at churches and festivals will begin in the Spring which makes for busy weekends. I will also be back in Nashville performing in April. I can’t wait to be back in Music City!

I am super excited about this upcoming year. You just never know what God has planned. He has blessed me so much as I have been able to do sing and travel which is what I love to do. I have met so many amazing friends along the way. Its pretty cool how music is such a great way to connect with other people!
Thank you so much Cassie! Your the best. Hope you are doing great!!! Big Hugs!
