Ex-Wreckers Jessica Harp goes to radio with single

Tuesday, January 19, 2010 – Former member of The Wreckers, Jessica Harp, went to radio today with her single A Woman Needs, the title-track off her forthcoming album.

The song talks about taking risks and getting second chances to follow your dreams. "A Woman Needs is a really special song," Harp said. "It's about women coming into their own and following their dreams, following their paths, and sometimes taking the path unknown. I think the obvious answer with me, the dream that I've followed, is the dream that I've had since I was three years old - to grow up to be a country singer."

The video will premiere on AOL's The Boot on Monday, Jan. 25 and making of the video webisodes are currently featured on the site. The webisodes will run in correlation with a contest where fans will obtain a code at the end of each webisode to enter on the sweeps page. The sweeps page is located at, and the winner will win a weekend getaway to Nashville and a meeting with Harp.

With sassy southern twang and a play on words, she proclaims her excitement for finally finding someone who »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Cantrell continues to satisfy – Laura Cantrell may never be a country star. Not at this stage of her career when she's 50, touring here and there and releasing new music every few years or so. But five albums in, Cantrell continues as a warm, enjoyable and worthy purveyor of her brand of country. That would mean going towards a more traditional side, not rushing the songs... »»»
Concert Review: Not only is Turner traditional, he's popular – Every time Josh Turner reached for some of those wonderful subterranean low notes, which he often pulled out during his enjoyable night show, it was like a superhero applying a superpower. He didn't need this extra advantage to please his audience; he has so many quality songs stockpiled in his catalogue already doing the job.... »»»
