Songwriter Heidi Newfield readies to release second solo album
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."
Six years later (along with a 2009 nomination by the Academy of Country Music Awards as the Female Artist of the Year) and she's ready to release her second solo album.
If you'd like to learn a little more about Heidi — you're in luck. Just go to the NRA Country website to see Heidi in action. You'll see her riding horses, goofing around backstage, performing live and more.
While there, take the time register to win a prize pack that includes an autographed CD, picture, two Heidi ball caps, and a men's AND ladies Heidi T shirt. All thanks to NRA Country.
