never learned much about country music,
but I had this natural ‘twang’ to my voice.
I bought my first country album,
Reba McIntire, and I was hooked.”

They travelled across the US Performing at
State and county fairs and in every country bar they could find
from El Centro, CA to Minot, ND.

to record a demo and loved it!!!
She began spending more and more time in Nashville
and played several venues on Broadway in downtown Nashville,
including Tootsies and The Stage.
