Country style with SaraBeth

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, the 27-year-old beauty is a contemporary country singer-songwriter – but don’t expect cowboy hats or spurs from this little lady.

“People in the UK think of country as more of the really traditional stuff like John Wayne and westerns and cowboys. Sometimes I wear boots, but sometimes I’ll wear heels on stage but I’m not wearing a cowboy hat or anything like that,” she laughs. “I’d say that I’m contemporary country or pop country, we use hip hop loops so you’ve got cool synthesisers and drum loops on one end but you’ve also got the country instrument so it stays true to the genre.”

Indeed, country music has been given a new lease of life in recent years with the likes of Taylor Swift and Mumford and Sons in the charts.
