Bio

TRACEY K. HOUSTON is a Nashville, TN-based country music artist with five full-length albums and numerous hit singles under her belt. She's about as country and down-to-earth as you can get. Born and raised in Western Canada, Tracey K. grew up a fan of country music legends such as Faron Young, Lefty Frizzell, Jean Shepard, Hank Williams, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, but her favorite has always been Loretta Lynn.

In 1987 Tracey K. made her stage debut during the Calgary Stampede. She remained in Western Canada for the next eight years performing with many country bands. In 1991 she recorded a self-titled mini-album; and in 1993 her first single ‘He's Not For Real’ was released to radio on ATI Records, doing very well in Canada and Europe.

Then in 1995, Tracey K. moved to Nashville to further pursue her country music career.

In 1997 her first full-length album "Falling For You" scored a #1 single of the title track on the independent charts in the U.S. later that year, remaining in the Top 20 for eight weeks. GAC and CMT Europe also picked up the video for this single. During that year, Tracey K. was honored to perform at a benefit concert in White House, TN for a Robertson County Police Officer who lost his life in the line of duty.

In 1998 the New York State Country Music Association nominated Tracey K. Houston as Female Vocalist of the Year.

In 1999 Tracey K. taped a performance at the Honky Tonk Heroes Showcase at the Club LaFiesta for the United Nations peace-keeping forces in Bosnia y Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia and all around the Baltic nations.

In 2000, Tracey K. released her second album "I'm Not the Same Girl". All seven singles from the album, 'Middle of the Bed', 'Hot Steamy Night In Dixie', ‘Count Me Out’, 'I'm Not The Same Girl', ‘The Girl In Oklahoma’, 'Lonesome' and 'Deja Blue', received chart action worldwide.

In 2003 she released 'You Did Everything Right' which also received chart action worldwide, and in mid-2004 her single ‘I Heard The Bluebirds Sing' (duet with Grand Ole Opry Star, Jim Ed Brown) remained on the Canadian charts for four months, as well as riding high on the European charts.

Tracey K. has won several industry awards including "Canadian Recording Artist of the Year" (2000) and "Album of the Year" (2001) awards from The Lonestar State Country Music Association (Best of Texas Music Awards) in Beaumont, Texas. In 2001, Tracey K. taped a PBS one-hour concert TV
Special entitled "Tracey K’s Café" which was aired nationally. In June of that year, she made another TV appearance on “Nashville Video Showcase.”

Tracey K. Houston has toured extensively throughout Western Canada and the United States, and in the Fall of 2004 she toured Europe for the first time. She has appeared at Fan Fair in Nashville consistently since 1997 to meet and chat with old and new fans alike. She has opened for the likes of David Frizzell, Razzy Bailey, Jo-el Sonnier to mention a few, but a highlight for her was opening for none other than the Queen of Country Music, Kitty Wells (& Johnny Wright). She has performed on the Ernest Tubb Record Shop Midnight Jamboree live radio show. Her dream has always been to appear on the Grand Ole Opry.

Today, Tracey K. has a starring role in a self-produced musical revue in honor of her hero, Loretta Lynn, called "Hey Loretta, The Girl From Butcher Holler". This is an inspiring portrayal of Loretta, which is not to be missed. From her third album project, a Loretta tribute entitled “Salute to Loretta Lynn”.

In January 2008 the single, “Our Hearts Are Holding Hands” bulleted to Number One on the European Country Music Association charts. She recently completed her fourth album project, “Just The Way I Am”, from which the first single, the title cut, climbed to #12 on the European charts in September 2008, and is currently being added to Americana radio in the USA.  Her most recent release is a rockabilly album, "Rockin' Little Angel", which scored a #14 slot on the New Music Weekly chart in 2011, with "Just a Little Too Much."

Despite the many awards and accolades Tracey K. Houston has achieved, she is still the same fun and personable, charismatic and hard-working lady she has always been. She credits the early country music pioneers with changing her life and helping her become the artist she has become, but Tracey K. Houston has an inner strength and tenacity that has carried her through it all.
