Dynamic Singer/Songwriter Sets Indie-Artist Record In Just 14 Months

-1Hailed by One Stop Country as “the greatest voice since Martina McBride,” Erica Nicole has mobilized fans as well as critics to help her set a new chart record.  With the release of “I’m Making Mine,” the title cut from her upcoming album, the dynamic young star-in-the-making becomes the first female on an independent label to release three consecutive Top 20 singles onto the MusicRow CountryBreakoutChart, following “I Listen To My Bad Girl” and “It’s Comin’ Down.”


This achievement brings truth to a maxim that Erica Nicole came up with as a guide to her approach to both her life and career: “Don’t just dream it. Believe it, live and make history.”  Yet this Georgia native also humbly shares the credit for her success, not just with producer Kent Wells (Dolly, Reba), who helmed all three singles, but also with her entire crew.  “I feel so blessed to have the people behind me that I do,” she says.  “Every day, our team gives it 110 percent.  That’s something I’m very proud of.”


Raised on the music of Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Reba McEntire and other country music legends, Erica Nicole moved to Nashville with a dream to follow in their footsteps.  She is already well on her way, having won Best Female Country Artist of the Year honors from NIMA (Nashville Music Industry Awards) in 2014.  At this year’s NIMA event, scheduled for Aug. 29, she is nominated for Artist of the Year, Best Country Solo Artist Female, Best Live Country Performer and Song of the Year (for “I’m Making Mine”).  In June she made her first appearance onstage at CMA Music Festival.  Her recent performances include headline dates in Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Wisconsin and elsewhere.  In September, she heads back to New York for more concert engagements.


Inspired by classic country music icons George Strait, Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline, Erica Nicole channels the magnetism of a more unusual musical influence – Tina Turner – during her high-energy, no-holds-barred live shows.  She’s opened for superstars Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Brad Paisley, headlined her own shows and sung the National Anthem at Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox), CitiField (NY Mets) and various basketball arenas.  The 2014 winner of the Nashville Industry Music Awards for Best Female Country Artist of the Year is an avid animal lover and supporter of the charity Educated Canines Assisting With Disabilities (ECAD).  Her passions include college football, comfortable clothes and Hershey’s Kisses.
