Alumna Update

Since Kaitlin Butts graduated from UCO’s Academy of Contemporary Music in Bricktown, she’s had great success in the music industry. After moving to Nashville, Kaitlin released “How Lucky Am I” as gift to her husband. The single has almost 600,000 streams on Spotify and the video has 9,000 views.

“It took me so much time and I worked really hard on it, but it was worth it because it’s cool to look back and remember every little bit,” Butts says. “Every little clip is a good memory.”
