This year marked the Country Music Association’s 50th Anniversary.

Collectively, she has received well over a hundred CMA, ACM, Billboard, MTV and CMT awards and nominations.
Fanjoy lent her talents to Love Song To The Earth, a global project that made it’s debut in Paris at the United Nations COP21 conference last year. Led by rock legend, Paul McCartney, the track features over a dozen musical superstars including Jon Bon Jovi, Natsha Bedingfield and Sean Paul. Aimed at reducing greenhouse emissions, the sale of the video benefitted Friends Of The Earth and the UN Foundation.

Fanjoy consistently writes and creates stories that resonate on a global scale. She directed seven hit videos for superstar Taylor Swift, eight for Keith Urban, over a dozen projects with Miranda Lambert and multiple videos for artists such as: Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, George Strait, and Alan Jackson.
