This week’s “Heard It Through The GrapeVINE” spotlight is Katie Davin ‘17. Born in Connecticut and raised in New Jersey, she is a Loyola Hall resident assistant and brings excitement and enthusiasm to Fairfield’s campus. In addition to her position as an RA, Davin is also an event manager on campus, a musician in Pep Band, a peer mediator and the secretary for the Math Honor Society. While balancing her numerous activities, Davin works hard to ensure success in both her math major and her education and management double minor.
Growing up, Davin’s mom played and listened to country music, which only lead Davin to loathe the genre. However, when a family friend introduced Davin to “newer” country music, she fell in love with country hats and old guitars. Davin has attended concerts by famous country artists such as Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum and Garth Brooks. Although Davin claims that she cannot listen to country music while doing homework, she does love jamming to this music while driving in her white Toyota Camry. Below are some of Davin’s favorite country songs.
“We Owned the Night” by Lady Antebellum
This is a song that my sisters and I love to jam out to in the car.
“My Church” by Maren Morris
I love this song because it is extremely catchy and explains my love of country music perfectly.
“Setting the World on Fire” by Kenny Chesney, feat. P!nk
This is an awesome collaboration between the two musicians and it always gets stuck in my head.
“H.O.L.Y.” by Florida Georgia Line
My best friend and I obsess over this song because it is just amazing.
“Falling For You” by Lady Antebellum
This song is from the movie “The Best of Me,” which is based on the book by my favorite author, Nicholas Sparks, and is coincidentally sung by my favorite band, Lady Antebellum.
“Humble and Kind” by Tim McGraw
This is my absolute favorite song because it is something I strive for everyday.
