Coti Howell was born and raised a music lover, and growing up in Nashville only increased her love affair with country music. The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga graduate cut her teeth in Journalism as a television reporter for the campus news station before working as an on-air reporter for Inside Music Row. She took some time off to travel and lived abroad in Bangkok before returning to the States to rejoin her one true love: Music Journalism. Howell worked as the entertainment reporter for AL.com in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and freelanced for Nashville publications before joining Taste of Country. In her spare time, she loves traveling the world, tweeting, shopping, spending time with friends and family and, of course, going to live shows!
