Join us this week as we welcome country music singer songwriter, Amanda Watkins. Born in the wild and wonderful state of West Virginia, and raised in sunny Florida, Amanda is the quintessential “American Woman.” Strong-willed but with a gentle spirit, holding dear a deep-rooted love of family, of country, of singing and songwriting. When she’s not in the studio or touring, she’s involved in her other passions - from experimenting with kitchen recipes, to indulging in the great outdoors, hiking, hunting and fishing. Drawn to music at an early age, her career has gone from singing in church to standing on the hallowed stage before a packed house in Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Amanda has always delivered powerful performances with her strong voice and gifted melodies and lyrics. One of the proudest moments of her young career was when she became the first unsigned artist to ever play network late night TV, and then share co-write honors on a major Big & Rich single at country radio. She’s been privileged to open for major artists like Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, Jamey Johnson and Frankie Ballard. Amanda has just finished recording a new full length album in Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A that includes the single “If I Was Over You," featuring Jamey Johnson and co-written by her with Rivers Rutherford. The single is out on radio and the full album is slated for release later in 2015. We will talk to Amanda about her upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Amanda Watkins at http://amandawatkins.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with Amanda during the show (718) 766-4193. Join us, Sunday 9/27/2015 at 4 PM EDT! Our message to the troops: WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.
