Paradigm Talent Agency Nashville in partnership with 343 Agency announced the first 13 dates of an all-girl country genre club tour featuring Heidi Newfield and Bridgette Tatum, with special guests. The She’s Country Tour, presented by Pendleton Whisky, kicks off in Little Rock, AR on November 2.
“Paradigm Nashville is proud to help launch this unique all-female tour," said She’s Country Tour co-producer and Paradigm Nashville co-head, Mike Snider. "Heidi and Bridgette both bring high-energy performances and a ‘let’s party’ attitude that are perfectly suited for these venues.”
Tia Bledsoe, Director of Marketing for Hood River Distillers, added, “Pendleton Whisky’s ‘Let’er Buck’ slogan is borne from the bold spirit of independence and hard-work ethic of the American cowboy and cowgirl. Heidi and Bridgette encompass that same spirit. They aren’t afraid to let loose and give their all in everything they do on and off the stage. This tour and these two exceptional artists are a perfect fit for the Pendleton Whisky brand.”

"I have partnered up with a few good friends, Pendleton Whisky, and my crazy talented girl, Miss Bridgette Tatum," said Newfield. “Together we’re throwing a party in your town. We want every one of our club tour shows to be overflowing with people who are rowdy, whiskey drinking, country music lovin’, not scared to have a damn good time kind of people. We want to show you that SHE’S COUNTRY and ‘SHE’ can rock the house as hard as any dude out there!"
Newfield first came to prominence as the lead singer for the celebrated country group Trick Pony with hits including “Pour Me” and “It’s A Heartache,” but since her departure from the group, Newfield has found acclaim in her own right. The hit “Johnny and June” catapulted the star into the spotlight when her critically-acclaimed 2008 debut solo album, WHAT AM I WAITING FOR, wowed country fans and garnered five ACM Award nominations for the solo vocalist. Newfield is currently in the studio with renowned producer Blake Chancey (known for his work with the Dixie Chicks and Montgomery Gentry) working on her highly anticipated follow-up album, slated for release in early 2012 on Curb Records.
A native of Florence, SC, Tatum co-wrote “She’s Country,” recorded and released by platinum-selling country superstar, Jason Aldean, which held the No. 1 position on the country radio charts for two consecutive weeks. In 2010, Tatum’s song “Loud” was selected as the official theme song of the ACC Football Conference’s 2010 season. This fast-paced anthem captured in a raucous music video resulted in exposure for Tatum in over 27 million households. Additionally in 2010, Tatum released her debut album, SEX, CHURCH & CHICKEN, on Root 49 Records
I’ve seen Heidi on stage before, and I know this is going to be a great show.
I’m rushing like always!
