COUNTRY MUSIC - It’s a very troubling thought to me that in this day and time, I no longer see that genre as either! No tradition, no treble, no twang, no twin fiddles, no 10-string, crying steel guitar, and barely any singers that are truly unique stylists. Seemingly gone are those who understand the power of real Country and Bluegrass music. This applied especially to the younger audiences of listeners and buyers of music. Although few and far between in Nashville, there are some entertainers who honor the music from the golden age of pure Country. They “get” the realism of the songs that continue to keep the heritage alive.

Valierie Ellis Hawkins is one such singer who is Country Music and herself for a living. She doesn’t go for the slamming drum loops, snap tracks, clap tracks, endless loops, and gimmick-filled fakery just to sell a song. Her angelic voice, brilliant smile, a witty grand personality, with class and grace are small parts of the magic recipe that draws you to her music.

Valierie’s music is captivating, with each song crafted like a fine sculpture. Each word and note a polished gem, with pure honesty in its delivery. She exemplifies Country Music the way it ought to be offered to the fans and the “country curious.” I’ve had the pleasure of having her as a special guest on my old radio program at 650AM, WSM. One song is all it takes to make you a fan.

You’ve been warned; Valierie is an amazingly talented and passionate singer just waiting for your love of her music and your support of real Country Music.
