Interview - SaraBeth
The familiar saying “everything is bigger in Texas” is earning some truth to its name as county music vocal powerhouse, SaraBeth, dusts off her boots and hits the Nashville music scene.
1) Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Well, I grew up in Dallas, TX. I'm incredibly close to my family. I LOVE running, traveling, trying new foods, and am addicted to coffee. One thing that most people are shocked to find out is that I used to be incredibly shy, both on stage and in life! It wasn't until I got to high school and started a waitressing job that I finally broke out of my shell. Now I'm sure some of my friends wish I'd go back to being the quiet girl! :)
2) Who are your musical influences?
My musical influences come from everywhere. I obviously listen to tons of country, but I grew up singing classical and chamber music. I was also competitive in hip hop dancing. So like I said, my influences come from everywhere.
3) How long have you been performing?
I started performing in front of my family when I was 18 months; however, I was painfully shy as a child. In elementary school I started performing in talent shows and singing competitions!
4) Why country music?
I grew up in Texas, so country music is what I was raised on. Two of the first albums I ever owned were Alan Jackson and Patsy Cline.
5) What do you feel is your best achievement so far?
I was able to play in the City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game at CMA Fest last year in Nashville. My teammates included Florida Georgia Line, Scotty McCreary, Lauren Alaina, Phil Vassar, Brett Eldredge...It was amazing to raise money with some of my favorite country artists.
6) What are your aims for the future?
Aim for the stars right?! I would LOVE to win an ACM or CMA award! I don't even care for what! Actually, I'm fine with just being nominated! :)
7) You have been over to play in the UK last year for a one off gig how does it compare to your gigs in America?
My show in the UK was so much fun. I actually have family and friends who live in London. The show we did was in Essex, so they were able to come out. It was also amazing to do the show with my best friend and guitar player, Glen Mitchell. I was able to meet his entire family as well. I consider my fans my extended family, so I gained a few new English family members at the show too!
8) Do you have any plans to come over in the future to perform more shows in the UK?
Fingers crossed we will be back in October of this year. Hopefully a UK tour will become an annual thing for me!
