Songwriter Heidi Newfield readies to release second solo album

Heidi Newfield chosen as NRA Country Artist Of The Month for October

Nashville, Tennessee - You've heard about NRA Country, right? In a nutshell, its the celebration of the bond between the country music community and hard-working Americans everywhere. Part of that is naming an NRA Country artist of the Month. For October, that artist is Heidi Newfield.

“Country is much more than the place you were born and raised," said Newfield. "To me, it’s about having a love for our beautiful land and a respect for this great nation’s founding principles."

Finding a spot in the spotlight with Trick Pony in 1996, Heidi sang lead, played guitar and even provided the finishing touches with a little harmonica too. Then, ten years later, she left. Time to head out on her own.

"I've decided to branch out and try it on my own," she said back in 2006. "It's time for me to follow my heart and take my own path."

One thing that I'm really looking forward to while residing in the Gateway to the West is the NRA Country Jam II.
