BREAKING NEWS!! EXCLUSIVE! TRICK PONY HAS A NEW SINGER!
This has NOT been announced formally, but I can report from well placed sources that Trick Pony HAS in fact chosen a new lead singer to replace Heidi Newfield.
Heidi’s replacement is an extremely talented and successful singer in her own right. A beautiful girl who several years ago was a rising country singer praised in the halls of the entertainment industry in Nashville. Her vocal abilities at such a yound age led several to compare her to and believe she was positioned to take over the throne of LeAnn Rimes as country music’s young ‘it’ girl. However, after her first release and several years of playing live, she traded her country sounding roots for a more rocking edge – something she was very comfortable with on stage.
I had heard unconfirmed rumours that another female artist from the Nashville area had been chosen for the position (and she too would have been a good choice). But after seeing and hearing the new girl, I can see how she would fit perfectly with Trick Pony. It’s her combination of respect for country music, her vocal abilities, and her rock sensibilities that she brings to the table. Trick Pony is well known for all three.
