It makes sense that Rachel Holder recorded a version of Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory.” The 19-year-old singer is herself on the edge of, if not glory, what may prove to be a successful career in country music.
Yes, there ae plenty of other young, pretty singers out there with her, all vying for your attention. But unlike some who might need a gimmick to grab that attention, Holder aims to attract it with one thing and one thing only: Her talent. She has a powerful, four-octave range that can both touch and amaze you at the same time.
We’ve already been given a taste of that talent with the release of her single “In Your Arms,” which only needed a few weeks to start impacting the charts.
Right now the native of Chattanooga, Tennessee is busy working on her debut album, Unstoppable, for Curb Records. It’s being produced by Chuck Howard and Wilbur Rimes, who is LeAnn’s father. If he’s able to help Rachel find a fraction of his daughter’s success, then she won’t be on the edge of glory, she’ll be smack dab in the middle of it.
In the following interview, we talk with Rachel about her single, fans going gaga for her Gaga cover, who inspires her (plus her encounters with those people) and finding her way with faith.
