Biography

Missy Covill ~ Iron Cowgirl
 

Artist, Singer, Songwriter

 

Listening to just a few minutes of a Missy Covill song reveals that the Iron Cowgirl is a determined and serious rock artist with a distinctive ability to tell stories through her music. Covill’s powerful, gritty and edgy vocals naturally match her inspiring lyrics and tunes, as her truth comes from her life experience and uncovers her personal emotion that otherwise would only be found deep within. Her first album “Heart of Steel” was released in 2010 and her second album, "Chasing My Dreams" was released in 2012. After five years, Missy Covill is bring a Southern Rock feel, and some sass, with her new album, "Switching Gears". Co-produced and co-written with Steve Smith;a 'Covill-Smith Project'. 

The Michigan native, an only child of a single mom, Missy Covill developed her intense drive and determination early on. As a young girl she wrote lyrics and made cassette player recordings of her sing. The first instrument Missy learned to play was a wash tub bass, made with a washtub, broom stick, and cotton string. She grew up riding mini bikes and camping with her horses and spent many nights around a campfire playing old country music with other musicians who played everything from spoons to a washboard.   Now in the early part of her midlife, after being a mig-welder for 20 years, she is absolutely chasing her dreams: writing, performing, meeting so many amazing people, and recording music that mirrors her life.

Missy Covill is honored and humbled to have accepted awards from the United States Military, St. Jude Childrens hospital, MDA, WFLAG and many other charities, for outstanding work and donating proceeds from shows, as well as her time and efforts to make a difference.  An avid motorcycle enthusiast, AMA, Motor Maid, Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame, and HOG member, she has logged over 150,000 miles on two wheels and shares her stories of survival through her music and encouraging others to always chase their dreams and never give up. 

Music and motorcycles are the things that make Missy Covill feel at home while performing.  After overcoming cancer, and matters of the heart, she packed up everything she could fit onto her Harley-Davidson (Mr. Bones) along with her guitar, and hit the road with only $250 in cash and a tent. Her 15,000 mile, ten-week journey chronicled in her song “Open Road,”  took her around the coast of Michigan, down to the Gulf of Mexico, back up through the Smoky Mountains, and ultimately to Sturgis, South Dakota which hosts the largest annual motorcycle event in the world. 

In 2010, Iron Cowgirl band came together and today performs her signature mix of country, rock, and blues internationally. The dedicated band members compliment the raw emotion of her lyrics.  Missy has been a Showcase Artist for the world's largest music and motorcycling event, and has become a staple at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. She has been featured on the cover of magazines, many radio stations and shared the stage with many national acts including The Doobie Brothers, The Charlie Brechtel Band and The Fryed Brothers Band. Missy has also opened for David Allen Coe, Confederate Railroad, Tesla, WAR, Madison Rising, and Saliva.  This little lady is making an impression on the music industry and chasing her dreams with a fury! 

Missy Covill is a hard working woman, and dedicated to every performance.  Being a staple at The Legendary Sturgis Buffalo Chip is committment and the band gives their all, professionally and musically. The band enjoys being a big part of activities such as the annual Fan Fest, Biker Belles, as well as performing on the Legendary Wolf Man Jack Stage, as many acts such as Zac Brown, Loverboy, Kid Rock, Buck Cherry, War, Queensryche, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Collective Soul, Motley Crue, Toby Keith, The Doobie Brothers, Alice Cooper, ZZ Top, Florida-Georgia Line, Pop Evil, Cheap Trick, and many more!!  The band is NOW BOOKING for 2017 and would like to add your venue to our tour!

“It’s the freedom of the open road, and the people I surrounded myself with, at the lowest point in my life, that got me through,” says Covill, “Those people gave me hope when I had none, love when I needed some, and memories I will carry with me for the rest of my life.” For more about Missy Covill - The Iron Cowgirl visit www.ironcowgirl.com.

 

Lyrics

Heart of Steel

Written By: Iron Cowgirl Missy

HEART OF STEEL

Here I am once again, Believing that love will always win
I'm mad as Hell for you being you, All I wanted was the truth

Loving a man who can not feel, Is like believing in something that is not real
Here I sit with so much regret, How did you get that heart of steel?

How did you get that Heart of Steel? Where did you get that troubled soul? Who Hurt You So Bad, That You Can’t Let Go Of the Past? How did you get that Heart of Steel?

I'm leaving now with my pride, Love ain't enough sometimes
I've given as much as I'm gonna give, This is a life that I can't live

God only knows, I can't say, What makes a man that way..Who hurt you so bad, That you can't let go of the past How did you get that heart of steel?
How did you get that Heart of Steel? Where did you get that troubled soul? Who Hurt You So Bad, That You Can’t Let Go Of the Past? How did you get that Heart of Steel?

Lead- Building…
Here I am once again Believing that love will always win, I'm mad as Hell for you being you, All I wanted was the truth!
How did you get that Heart of Steel? Where did you get that troubled soul? Who Hurt You So Bad, That You Can’t Let Go Of the Past? How did you get that Heart of Steel?
How did you get that Heart of Steel? Where did you get that troubled soul? Who Hurt You So Bad????????????

Cause I found someone new, who believes in me (ahhhhh, ahhhh)

IRON COWGIRL-

I've ridden many miles now baby, down that open road, the rain in my eyes, felt the cold wind blow.

Believing that my baby loved me, Oh, it turned my heart to steel, I let go of those reins, and grabbed a hold of that wheel.

Now I'm an Iron Cowgirl Baby, on my horse I ride A heart of steel on two wheels.
I'm an Iron Cowgirl Baby, on my horse I ride A heart of steel on two wheels.
I'd wake up in the morning, boy with you on my mind, Well I’d grab a cup of coffee – and pack my bike.

And I would ride for hours baby, Mmmm, days at a time just looking for me, that's all I was trying to find.

I guess I learned my lesson didn’t I? Oh yea as time went by, but like they say, "Love is so blind."
So listen to me baby if you, Ohhh, if you can steal a little time, thank you for the lesson, I'm doin just fine.

Now I welcome that rain, I’ll go where the cold wind blows, cause I can see now down that open road.
When I feel the sun a rising Oh how it lights my way, Life is Good, its another great day
Cause I'm an Iron Cowgirl Baby Oh, on my horse I ride. A heart of steel on two wheels.
I'm an Iron Cowgirl Baby Oh, on my horse I ride. A heart of steel on two wheels.

I'm an Iron Cowgirl – I’m an Iron Cowgirl Baby- I’m an Iron Cowgirl all the way.
I'm an Iron Cowgirl – I’m an Iron Cowgirl Baby- I’m an Iron Cowgirl all the way.

Chasing My Dreams

Written By: Iron Cowgirl Missy

"Chasing My Dreams"

Roll on down that road, with your heart of steel, and a heavy load.
Please tell your memory to let me go I'm moving on now, and just so ya know
I watched your tail lights disappear, took one last look in my rear view mirror, then I moved on, "Chasing My Dreams"- I know where I'm going-I know where I've been- I'm picking myself up all over again. but I'm moving on, "Chasing My Dreams"- "Chasing My Dreams"

Now we're rolling down that road, playing my music everywhere I go,
Well I gotta little rock now, with my roll. Aww well the guys and me, we're headed to a show!
Now you watch my tail light disappear, take one last look in your rear view mirror.
I'm moving on, "Chasing My Dreams". I know where I'm going- I know where I've been-
I've picked myself up all over again. And I'm moving on, "Chasing My Dreams"-
"Chasing My Dreams"

So keep on rolling down that road, with your heart of steel, and a heavy load.
Please tell your memory to let me go I moved on now, and just so ya know.
Now you watch my tail light disappear, take one last look in your rear view mirror.
I'm moving on, "Chasing My Dreams". I know where I'm going- I know where I've been-
I've picked myself up all over again. And I'm moving on, "Chasing My Dreams"-
"Chasing My Dreams"
Keep on Rollin' Down That Road

Open Road

Written By: Iron Cowgirl Missy

OPEN ROAD
Packed my bags and I headed North Rode around the coast of Michigan
It wasn't far enough away from you.. The wind was calling my name, sayin..
Come on back to that open road
Where you feel so free
Come on back to that open road
Where you eyes and not your heart can see

Made it down to the Gulf of Mexico
Me and Bobby G made some memories
But I still couldn't find a piece of mind
So I took that interstate north on 75
Where I, I met a Dragon in Deals Gap
318 curves 11 miles, and I wasn't lookin back
Oh no, Not for one minute
The wind was calling my name
Come on back to that open road
Where you feel so free
Come on back to that open road
Where you eyes and not your heart can see
I hit Chicago bout rush hour
Traffic didn't bother me
I was one mile closer to finding me

I headed west on Rt 90 into the night
With a full moon by my side
I made it to a little town called Sturgis
Where the people are so free
15000 miles in 70 days
All you other Iron Cowgirls let that wind call your name
