Five-time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year winner, Dale Ann Bradley, has signed with PinecastleRecords. She previously recorded four albums on the label as a member of The New Coon Creek Girls and another three as a solo artist. After recording for two other labels, she is now returning toPinecastle to act as producer for the first time on a solo project to be released in mid 2015. She is currently working on original songs to begin recording this winter.
Dale Ann Bradley expressed her enthusiasm about the new venture. “I am thrilled and excited to be a Pinecastle artist. I feel like it’s a homecoming. My first recordings were with Pinecastle. They were a forthright company then when Tom Riggs was at the helm and I feel that is the case with Lonnie Lassiter and Ethan Burkhardt. I am excited about the new possibilities and opportunities presented here. So happy about producing my own album for the first time too. All feels great!”
Dale Ann Bradley was raised in rural Kentucky, where, her early exposure to music were hymns at church, the radio at home, and later a black and white television. She got her first guitar at age 14 and not long after joined her high school band teacher’s group Backporch Grass. Several years later, after performing as a solo act at the Renfro Valley Barn Dance she joined The New Coon Creek Girls, who she would record with until 1997. Her three proceeding solo recordings launched her career as the solo artist that she is known as today.
