Raised on a dairy farm in Bluemont, Virgina, my Country Roots are honest as the day. We had a lot of ground to cover as kids. Our life was surrounded with Cows, chickens and lots of room for rooming the fields wishing for a pony to ride in the lush alfafa fields. I was your Tom Boy kind of girl. My daddy taught me how to fish at the age of 5 years old and that is one of my favorite hobbies.
I listened to all of Karen Carpenters songs and Dolly Parton’s “My Coat of Many Colors” and enjoyed singing those songs . My Coat of Many Colors song reminded me of the “Hand Me Down Clothes” given to our family.
My mom was a big Fan of Conway Twitty. She was a music lover and she loved to dance. I get that honest, just ask any one that knows me. Visiting my grandparents was a treat, because my Uncles were always playing their guitars. My one Uncle Charles would say to me.. if you scratch my back I will give you a quarter and play the guitar.
Back home things were tough for my mom and dad so we had to move around a lot from school to school. I suffered with Asthma and almost died. I must be honest folks I prayed every day for God to heal me and when I turned 18 years of age, it was gone. Since we had very little I spent a lot of time singing and I started writing songs. My first song was New York City and my 2nd song was Tell Me Know Lies.
Music has never stopped in my life, in church I sang in the choir and in high school music was my favorite subjects… got my AAA’s all the time
In 1992 I met Marty Stuart in Urbana, Maryland at the Carnival and became obsessed with his Rockabilly style of music.
I started writing songs after meeting Marty. I wrote 25 songs in the 90’s. Some of these great songs are… I’m Just A Country Boy, Chances Are, Wedding Bells, Goodbyes, She’s Got It.
I GOT THE MUSIC TO SING !!
