Heidi Parton - An interview with a legend in the making. She opens up to CMV regarding bias in the music industry.

Is it more difficult for women to get work in the country music industry then men? Heidi Parton opens up to Country Music Vibe in a compelling interview. There is so much more to Heidi Parton then her talented music.

I have had heard that there is a stigma in the country music industry that men are getting more
work than women. I am relatively NEW to the country music industry as a Publicist to know if
there is a difference. I personally do not see it, nor have experienced a prejudice against
women country music singers. I would hope that isn’t the case. Some of my most favorite
country music singers are women. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great male country
music singers as well. However, I think back at some of the most dynamic country music singers and Crystal Gale, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline and Dolly Parton comes to mind.

Caroline Gray Interview - Humility – Why it means everything to your music career.

It was important for us to get the perspective of someone that is highly respected in the country music industry. So we had to go to someone who knows what it takes to succeed.

Today if the day that you meet with your new manager or publicist. Maybe even a record label. As you prepare for your meeting, you look at yourself in the mirror and say “time to put my game face on”. What does that expression mean? We all have heard it at one time or another. It refers to having a “confident swagger you bring out when you are about to get ready to tackle something difficult, or when you are about to take on a challenge”. So, does being humble mean that you have to give up your game face? No, not by any means. There is an edge to being humble. No one expects you to come into the room, for a career changing opportunity with humility. They anticipate you being way to eager, or hard nose and ready to battle over contract terms.

Quality music that has withstood the test of time, and music trends. The success of the Bellamy Brothers have made it clear, there style of music will always be unique and will be with us forever.

It is amazing the feeling you get when you hear a song from the past. Not just any song, but one that truly made an impact on you as you grew up. Other than Johnny Cash and Hank Williams Jr., few artists and their music had an impact on my entire life like that of The Bellamy Brothers. Every time I hear their music, it allows me to reminisce about the “good old days”. Songs like, “Let Your Love Flow”, “Red Neck Girl”, and “When I’m Away From You,” and so many more hits that they sang during the 80’s and 90’s  could make you fan of the Bellamy Brothers forever. There is not much in this life that makes you feel as good as music does. The Bellamy Brothers music was “feel good” music, and it had the ability to get you up and dancing, enjoying life, and forgetting all your troubles. How many bands can you say that about?
