Of all of the female vocalists to perform in the Black Country Music Showcase, one stood out in my mind. Anyone can sing a country song, but the very first time I heard Valierie Ellis Hawkins, I knew that she was what I was taking a stand for in the country music scene.

A walking pure country arsenal as lethal as any female I had ever heard, Valierie proved to me that she wasn’t merely singing a country song.

She was country personified! Her love for the traditionalists was so pronounced that I thought that keeping Valierie undiscovered would be a disservice to the world. Kudos to her latest effort “Colorblind.”

A precious diamond in the rough. - Frankie Staton
