PLAINS - Often in youth, people put away their ‘childish’ dreams and settle for practical things, and few ever fully realize their potential at success in their dreams. For Fay Ann Couture of Plains, her dream of being a successful singer-songwriter is taking off and it’s all because of her resilience and few good friends who believe in her music.

Couture is set to perform in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday for a major campaign fundraiser, “Restore Our Republic Now” for Congressional candidate Sheriff Mack and U.S. Senate candidate Glenn Addison. It will be her first major gig.

“I’m just starting,” Couture said. “It’s a real honor to play for them and I feel very blessed.”

Couture’s manager, Ivan Lackey of Abilene, Texas, booked the gig for Couture and is also Couture’s good friend and fellow musician. “Ivan and I are both musicians,” Couture said. “Since we first met, we felt like family. We started co-writing songs and my husband suggested that since Ivan is so good with people and he believes so much in my music, he could be my manager. Ivan’s wife suggested the same thing, too.”

Couture went down to Abilene to record her first album, “Born to be a Cowgirl,” which is due out in March. A CD release party is set for March 10 in Plains at The Grange. When Couture isn’t playing or working on new material, she works at Lil’Ja Precision Rifle Barrels in Plains. She is also an expert marksman. But music is her first true passion. With music, she is always happy and the fire for it is always present. Couture stated her main influences were Patty Loveless, The Judds, Vince Gill, Miranda Lambert and, most importantly, her own parents.

“My parents were musicians and I grew up in a family band,” Couture said. “It’s funny the way things work out. I’m about 50 and I’m just getting back into [performing music] and I’m going at it 100 percent. I told my husband that even if nothing comes of it, you still have to try.”

Bio

Fay Ann Couture is an American recording artist and entertainer. She was born just over the Montana border in the small town of Williston, North Dakota. Her family moved soon after to Great Falls, Montana, where she was raised. She began performing as a child, as part of a traveling band, with her parents and her older brother. She started writing her own songs by the time she was 17, playing in the family band at events around the state of Montana.

Couture got married in her twenties and moved away from her family to western Montana. In the last few years, she has concentrated on writing and preparing her new CD. Her career has taken and upward swing, gaining fans all over the world, through an internet radio station (eaglexmradio.com), where she is now a part time D.J.

Guided by producers in Texas, she will soon be signed with a record company and will release her debut album "Born To Be A Cowgirl". Her new album is a fiery example of C&W music, lauded by fans for “its mixture of "traditional country ...with her own unique, soft and smooth, modern sound". It includes a foray into new vocal processing that reveals the same musical perfectionism Couture learned, as a child, from her mother and father.
