Olivia Faye Interview by Savina Todorova for Country Music News International
Olivia Faye is a country/pop singer/songwriter and actress who hails from Murray, Kentucky. Growing up in a family of music lovers, her musical stylings pay homage to many of the early icons of country music, blues and classic rock. Olivia moved to Nashville at 19, and quickly acclimated to a life in Music City as a songwriter and performer. Her smooth, bluesy vocals and catchy tunes have won her numerous invitations to perform throughout Nashville and beyond, her favorite being Puckett’s of Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee where she is a regular.
Savina Todorova: How was the last year for you? What were your highlights?
Olivia Faye: The last year for me had its ups and downs! During the time Nashville was shut down it was vey scary having no places to play because that is how I (like many artists) rely on making a living. But I made the best of it by spending lots of time back home in Kentucky with my family and a lot of time outside in nature. It really helped spark something in myself with my song writing I didn’t know I needed. Once venues opened back up again and I was playing again it was wonderful! Everyone needed live music more than ever! Looking back on 2020 I am thankful for the downtime that brought us all closer together.

Jeff Carson Interview by Nigel Sharpe for Country Music News International
Jeff Carson has come full circle with careers that have allowed him to do the two things that he loves –music and police work. As a youngster, he and his family would sing three-part harmony on trips. One of those trips was to Branson, Missouri, where he saw a show that inspired him to tell his high school counselor that he wanted to get into music. The counselor didn’t discourage Carson; instead, he picked up the phone and made some phone calls and that encouraged Carson to pursue a career in music.
Carson quickly learned the places to meet other music business folks were the songwriter nights at local Nashville clubs. He also volunteered to do demos for songwriters for free so he could get his foot in the door to sing demos.He sang demos onsongs that turned into hits for Tracy Byrd (“Walkin’ To Jerusulum”), Tracy Lawrence (“I See it Now”), Reba McEntire (“The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter”) and Tim McGraw (“I Wouldn’t Want it Any Other Way”), Faith Hill (“It Matters To Me”).”
