Not only is he the owner of the little yellow Chevy pick-up, “Old Yeller,” but CHS senior Allen Hart is the owner of big dreams. Hart is working his way into the music scene, but the road leading Hart down the music path has not  been easy one.

“When I was five years old, I went to my grandparents crying because kids at school were picking on me,” Hart said. “My grandpa told me I needed something to make the kids respect me, so he taught me how to play guitar.”

Hart’s learning music at a young age turned to ambition in third grade when  he started writing songs.

Now he uses social media as a way to promote his music, turning to Instagram live streams to interact with his fans.

“When I write a new song that I want to know if it’s worth keeping, I get on a live stream and see how many people actually like it,” Hart said. “It’s also just a way of living my dream.”

Hart has many inspirations, including country legends like Johnny Cash, Keith Urban and Brad Paisley, but his number one idol is country singer Luke Combs.

“I try to make my music sound like [Combs]. I try to make what I call ‘feel good songs,’ because people say country is all sad love songs, and I’m trying to change that,” Hart said.

Hart says the best part of making music is the memories behind his songs, and many of his songs are written about childhood memories.

“It brings back a lot of fun memories of life back in Tennessee and Thermopolis [WY],” Hart said. “It also reminds me of all the fun I had with buddies. In my music I try to make each of my songs convey a different message.”

Hart has received positive feedback from his peer and gains a couple new Instagram followers a day. When he does live streams on Instagram, he often has other students giving him compliments at school the day after .

Hart plans to follow his dreams after high school and to to sell CD’s of his music. He wants people to hear his message.

“It’s been a dream of mine since I was five and first learned guitar. If my idols can do it, I can do it too,” Hart said. “I represent the small town kids with big time dreams.”
