JACKIE ARREDONDO RECORDS NEW ALBUM WITH
#1 HIT SONGWRITER BRIAN WHITE AT THE HELM
Arredondo Readies for Her First CMA Music Festival
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — June 7, 2011 — Miami based vocal powerhouse Jackie Arredondo discovered country music while driving an 18-wheeler throughout the SouthEast. She fell in love with the stories each artist told through song and she was determined to make her own mark in the genre.
With lucrative and phenomenal success within the Latin market (featured on 9 reality shows and vocal trained numerous multi-Platinum mega-artists), Jackie arrived in Nashville last week stepping into the studio with singer/songwriter/producer Brian White (“Watching You,” among many others). The duo recorded five songs for Jackie’s debut country music EP due out later this year. The collection includes the soaring ballad “Let Me Fall” and the rollicking fun one-night-stand tale “Rockin’ the Trailer.”
Brian White, Jackie & Kellen at Legends Recording Studio
Jackie began her first-ever CMA Music Fest with an early morning fishing trip on June 7. She and her partner, professional bass angler Kevin Hawk, joined Bo Bice, Joey + Rory, Andy Griggs and Bryan White, among others, for the 4th Annual Porter Wagoner Memorial Artists/Anglers Fishing Tournament. They used plastic worms courtesy of Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits to catch and ultimately release four big mouth bass. Although Jackie has fished in deep ocean waters, this was her first freshwater excursion; her catch for the day weighed in at an impressive 8.55 lbs.
The rest of Jackie’s week is filled booth visits, interviews and a performance.
