Genre: Acoustic, Country   Record label  Little Loud Records  Affiliation: ASCAP, CMA, NSAI

Like a Texas twister, this Texas country chanteuse is taking the music scene by storm and showing everyday dreamers that dreams really do come true.

When the lyrical prowess of top Nashville songwriters meets the edgy attitude that is the hallmark of the Texas sound, audiences cannot help but respond.
Combined with the energy of a rock show and channeled through a powerfully expressive voice, these elements ensure that Misty Rae will make an impact every time she takes the stage. The themes of Misty’s songs are relevant and relatable, and her sincere delivery reveals the integrity behind every performance. She is as genuine as the music she creates, and that is what makes her a true entertainer. Although a Texas native, Misty lives in Nashville, TN and is currently and working with award winning producer and songwriter, Robert Ellis Orall to release an EP in early 2014.

With the release of her debut EP, “Mystery,” on June 17, Misty Rae Carson is making a bid to attain the same kind of success in her music career that she reached with her educational endeavors.  With songs like “More Wishes Than Stars” and “Woke Up One Day,” which was co-written with Robert Ellis Orrall, Carson tells the familiar story of laying it all on the line to chase one’s dreams or the greater risk of not following through and never knowing what might have been.
“Woke Up One Day is the song that kind of brought me back to life,” said Carson. “I never saw myself as someone who would settle down and stay in one house all my life – I had always dreamed of traveling the world by way of making music, but Nashville can be a tough town. Somewhere along the way I just stopped dreaming. I woke up and just stopped dreaming.
In just a short time, the young singer/songwriter has already had the rare opportunity to open for Grand Old Opry legends Ray Price, Bill Anderson, Porter Wagoner, and Billy Walker and share writer’s rounds with some of her heroes like Benita Hill, Georgia Middleman, Rick Giles and Don Henry....

Misty Stevens
" Where Corn Don't Grow" - “I really like her, I think it’s great, she’s blue-grassed it up and I LOVE IT”! - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Bloomington, IN Americana / Bluegrass / Acoustic #3 rank

Misty Stevens (Baker) grew up in Bloomington Indiana and showed an ear for music at a very young age. She started playing piano at age five, and guitar by sixteen, playing mostly gospel music at churches in and around the area. Her taste in music spans many genres, but bluegrass has stolen her heart. Living so close to Bean Blossom, the only surprise about her bluegrass journey, is that it didn't start sooner! Misty has written gospel songs, but the high, lonesome harmonies of mountain music have tapped into an abundant well of writing creativity. Her songs are unique, as she writes both fact and fiction, but vocally bleeds every spiritual drop of herself into a song.
Misty and her husband Brent reside in Bloomington Indiana. They have three children, Brody (7), Marleigh (2), and Brent's daughter McKenna (15). In addition to music, Misty works part-time as a nurse, and enjoys gardening, crafting, and studying Bible prophecy.

"It's a lot like climbing a mountain," Allison said of releasing the first single.
She said her inclusion on the soundtrack came about unexpectedly. The California filmmakers were shooting in Mississippi and heard Allison singing at IP Casino. They decided her voice would be perfect for the Mississippi-based storyline of their film.
"They thought it would be cool to have someone from here to give it that natural feel," Allison said. "They asked me if I had any originals and I said, 'Heck, yeah.'"
The song is about "love, mistakes and redemption," Allison said, and was used in the opening scene as the star C. Read more here:
