Music is a big part of who I am, but family overshadows anything I have ever done

“Music is a big part of who I am. It’s like breathing and I don’t think I could live without it. My accolades come from being associated with a talented bunch of guys in a band, but family overshadows anything I have ever done. Music is in our veins and that came straight from our mother. We started out singing hymns and practicing the barbershop quartet harmonies of the Chuck Wagon Gang and the sibling harmonies came naturally. We still get together around that piano and the years drop away. Ella Avery and I were The Willettes, the first girls in a Southern rock band and we wore the short shorts. I just offered harmonies and made it a little different, but thank goodness for the ride. It was great to be a woman in music at that time. I wouldn’t trade it for the college education I didn’t get. Singing is a time warp and I am a different person when I sing. I am 64, but there is no age limit to music. It is time to grow and reinvent myself. Right now, I am happy to be healthy and alive and spending as much time as I can with my family, my greatest achievements. I am who I want to be.”
