Being one of those people that enjoys seeing new, up-and-coming artists, I always get drawn to the smaller shows at festivals like the CMA Music Fesitval coming up June 7-10th. While looking at the schedule for the acoustic stage at the Hard Rock, a name caught my eye. That name was Julienne Irwin. The first thing that came to mind was this fourteen year old girl that was on America’s Got Talent in 2007. She came in fourth on the show, sang “Teardrops on my Guitar” with Taylor Swift and watched as via a video, Martina McBride had some amazing things to say about her. So when I saw that Julienne would be performing at CMA Fest on June 9th at 4:45pm at the Hard Rock, I got interested. Her website is www.julienneirwin.com and you can listen to some of her music and find out what she’s been up to. She’s played with Linda Davis, who she counts as one of her best friends and she just finished up her first year at Belmont University there in Nashville. I had the wonderful oppertunity of talking with Julienne and asking her about her experience on America’s Got Talent, singing with Taylor Swift as well as what her future plans on for her music.
