Dubbed the reigning "Queen of Country in Memphis" by Memphis Magazine’s City Guide, and the "Princess of Twang" by Memphis' daily paper the Commercial Appeal, Nancy Apple inexplicably reminds her audiences how special it is to be in the presence of such individuality. From classic country tunes to memorable ballads and honey-flavored cheatin’ songs, Nancy rocks-and-rolls with a twist that is twangled up in the blues. It’s genuine y’alterna-honk that is outside the lines and far from ordinary.

Nancy plays drums, guitar, harmonica and accordion. She has been nominated more than a dozen times for a Premier Player Award in Memphis in the songwriting, Female Vocalist and Community Service categories, and was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition in 2002 and 2003. She has appeared in numerous movies and videos with the likes of Harvey Keitel, Linda Gail Lewis and Bridget Fonda, has been endorsed by Gibson Guitars, played drums in The Hellcats and with bluesman great Willie Cobbs. She did a stint as the Tennessee Triple Threat with Duane Jarvis and Phil Lee, and a duet record with Rob McNurlin. Nancy has sung backup with Todd Snider, Dan Baird, Keith Sykes, Mark Lindsay, Reba Russell, Barbara Blue, Jay Ruffin and Cory Branan. Nancy is also known as The Cadillac Cowgirl, and has been a deejay on WEVL in Memphis doing a Monday afternoon drive show (CarTunes) since 1996.

Her journey to the present has been as eclectic as she is. Born and raised a Navy brat, Nancy Apple’s immense talent became clear at a very early age — she went from crawling to dancing to Fats Domino.

Take note of Nancy Apple. She is the real deal, she plays your heart strings and leaves you feeling energized, encouraged, refreshed. And she still likes to dance to Fats.
