NYCountry Swag Spotlight: SaraBeth
Garland, Texas hometown of Lee Ann Rimes and our next Swag Spotlight, SaraBeth. “Growing up she was what every singer in town aspired to be, if she could do it you could do it too,” SaraBeth explains of Rimes in a recent chat about growing up in Garland. As a shy kid who sang in her church choir, Sara was in elementary school when she started performing at the Garland Opry. As she grew up she explains that her biggest influences were definitely Shania Twain and The Dixie Chicks. As her tastes matured, she found a true love for traditional country music such as Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline. Her parents listened to light rock and Christian music, so those genres also shaped her influences today. Originally going to Baylor and pursuing entrepreneurship, SaraBeth realized after graduating that she truly loved singing and did not want to look back and wonder “what if”. She headed to Nashville to pursue her music career and hasn’t looked back since.
