Raised in western Kentucky, Candy learned to belt it out at a young age. Her grandmother’s vinyl collection of old gospel greats and country legends influenced what many are saying is a sound that is “unique and distinctly fresh to modern country”.

After attending the University of Missouri on a vocal scholarship, Candy was determined to do “what I have always been wired to do…share this awesome gift of music with other people... use what talent God gave me to connect people … music is something that brings people together no matter what age, background, or upbringing.”

Candy continues to receive tremendous fan support from fans, other artists and people throughout the industry. Her story-telling, soulful, song-crafting savvy and exhilarating stage presence will soon reach your region and airwaves!

Candy’s biggest fan (who also happens to be her husband!) gave Candy her signature green guitar on Mother’s day. As Candy and her green guitar continues to light up the stage and the roar of “Gimme Some Candy!” builds; Candy keeps making her dreams come true. Candy believes all experiences happen for a reason and her life, her family and her experiences have shaped her soul and ultimately her sound. A sound which is distinctly Candy Coburn’s, and is reshaping the face of modern country music.
