Born in Cuba, and now calling Miami, Florida home, JACKIE ARREDONDO has recently released her single, “Like We Used To” to international radio! This multi-talented artist has already gained attention with her with her EP, “Just Call Me Jackie,” which was produced in Nashville by Brian G White. In 2012, she was the first Latina to introduce the steel guitar to National Hispanic television, and she was the first Latina to introduce genuine country music with Spanish lyrics to Hispanic radio - reaching number one on the Latin radio charts with “The Woman You Wanna Be” (El Hombre Perfecto) and reaching number three with “Let Me Fall” (Por Que Eres Tan Cruel).
Canadian JAMES KEITH NORMAN proudly introduces his brand new album, “That’s Right,” and its first single, “In Trouble Now.” Each and every one of the nine tracks on “That’s Right,” his third album, was written by James, and recorded in Nashville. It has some real “heavyweight’ players involved: Jon Conley (Kenny Chesney) on guitar, Rob Hajacos (Garth Brooks, Taylor Swift, Shania Twain) on fiddle, Smith Curry (Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift, Little Big Town) on steel...just to name a few. His stepfather, Jimmy Coxson, was a successful pianist, well known around the jazz clubs and a staple at the CBC. His mother, Mona was an influential music booking agent, business music consultant, author and columnist at Canadian Musician magazine.
Tune in for this one hour episode of In The Country featuring stories and songs from my guests Jackie Arredondo and James Keith Norman.

For this show we introduce you to the very talented Jackie Gray. Emerging artist, Jackie Gray, brings a combination of sultry vocals and piano mastery to her debut album, creating a genre all her own. An authentic singer/songwriter, Gray’s music is a tribute to the vintage-era songstresses of the past. Her soulful yet torch/jazz-inspired voice has a timeless sound that was made for both an antique gramophone and a modern radio.
A Nashville transplant, Gray ventured from Seattle to the Music City in 2011, originally anticipating breaking into country music. After teaming up with 27-year music veteran and producer, Jim Reilley, she spent the last several years crafting a style that blends decades and genres into one sound.
With smoky, impassioned singing and an updated nod to the great musical standards, Jackie weaves a tapestry of intelligent lyrics and delightful original ,yet familiar music. Host Mitch Ruth, will ask Jackie about the journey to her unique style, the differences between making music in the Pacific North West and Nashville, and what is coming up in her musical career. Mitch may also get to ask the fabled question, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it; what is the best beginner piano method book to use with a six-year old?"
