ITS great to see our country music product Caitlyn Shadbolt do so well on the country music charts.

Since finishing in the top five of X Factor, she has shown she is no flash in the pan.

The 19-year-old has been working hard since she was ousted from the reality television series.

She has been doing plenty of gigs, all around the country, while honing her singing and performance skills. I saw her perform at the Muster, she wowed the crowds, and her latest single Shoot out the Lights is a ripper.

There is nothing I like better than seeing Gympie people do well, especially ones who are so proud of our region.

Caitlyn is showing that making it in the music industry isn't just about raw talent, it's about working hard and doing the right thing by other people. I hope she goes all the way to the top.
