HitShop Records Signs Dynamic New Talent
Natalie Stovall and The Drive

Paul Worley to Produce


Nashville, TN — (June 28, 2013) — Only six months after launching the
company in Nashville, HitShop Records President Skip Bishop today
announced the signing of an exclusive recording agreement with dynamic
new talent, Natalie Stovall and The Drive.

Stovall, a Tennessee native, is a relentless performer, amassing over
200 dates each year across college campuses, clubs and military bases
around the globe. In 2012 she won the coveted Campus Activities Magazine
Entertainer of the Year Award, marking the first time a female
performer has received the honor in over 20 years. Natalie Stovall has
been playing with The Drive for more than seven years and includes band
members James Bavendam, Joel Dormer, Zach Morse and Miguel Cancino.

Stovall is managed by Red Light Management’s Tracy Gershon and booked through the Paradigm Agency and Degy Entertainment.

“Natalie and her band are the total music experience,” shares HitShop
President Skip Bishop. “They are the personification of heart pounding
performances, remarkable musicianship, dynamic material and purely
joyful American-made music entertainment! She arrives at HitShop with a
ready-made, rabid fan base and more energy and road chops than ten
bands. Make plans to see Natalie Stovall and the Drive as soon as you
can. You will leave reminded why we all do what we do!”

Stovall was only 10 years old when she was asked to join the Opryland
Kids Club and quickly became a regular performer at the legendary theme
park.  “I grew up in Columbia, Tennessee playing fiddle at Opryland
every day, so I am country,” Stovall says. “I am a child of the radio as
well, and once I put my fiddle down for the day I was just as likely to
be listening to Michael Jackson or Aerosmith as I was to Reba and
Faith. I’m sure my music and my show reflect that, and that’s who I am.
The thing I hear most from people is, ‘I normally don’t like country
music, but you just changed that,’ and that makes me feel like I’m doing
something right.”

Stovall is already hard at work on her upcoming HitShop Records album
with producer Paul Worley (Lady Antebellum, Big & Rich, The Band
Perry) and is looking forward to reaching out to country radio
programmers and fans starting this fall.
