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 www.jessicaharp.com/awomanneeds, and the winner will win a weekend getaway to Nashville and a meeting with Harp.

The tomboyish tune, Boy Like Me, was the first single. 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. »»»

The Turnpike Troubadours had a lot of competition when playing Beantown - the Red Sox playoff game first and foremost. No matter though because the country band put on their own winning show.

It all starts with lead singer Evan Felker.... »»»

Jerry Lee Lewis isn't exactly out and about hitting the clubs these days. But if he was searching for someone who was carrying on his torch, he would do well to check out Adam Weiner, the force behind Low Cut Connie.
