Sydney was introduced to NASCAR racing through singing the National Anthem for several NASCAR races at Iowa Speedway. She continues several friendships within the sport today. In 2012, she wrote a song called 'Angels Still Cry' about the tradegy at Sandy Hook, the song was included on a compilation CD to raise money for the victims' families wll as the school's music and arts program. Sydney has performed in Newtown, Conn for some of the victims' families and the community.

The 25-year old has several tour dates already under her glittery western belt, playing at the Mississippi Songwriter Festival, Pensacola Songwriter's Festival, the Florabama and several Monster Jam arena in Iowa, Kentucky, Oklahoma, and Ohio.
