Nashville artist Amber Hayes is a true multi-talent threat in the entertainment field. Already known as an accomplished theater performer (most notably as Kathy Twitty in the 2009 Conway Twitty musical, “It’s Only Make Believe,” Amber released her debut Country album in 2010. Her first two singles, “C’mon” and “Wait” were Top 40 singles on the MusicRow CountryBreakout chart and solidified her as an artist to watch in the Nashville community. This summer, Amber landed her first big screen movie appearance. Amber contributed three songs to the 2012 summer flick, “Cowgirls N’ Angels” and even has a small acting role in the film. Amber is returning to the studio to finish up her sophomore album. Look for a new single from that project later this summer or early fall!”
Q: If you could be anyone for a day, who would it be and why?
A: Dolly Parton! I think it’s because she has her hands in so many different ventures. I wonder how she gets so much done in 24hrs? I love that she is able to bless so many people – I can’t imagine how rewarding that must be! Plus, if I were Dolly for a day, I wouldn’t have to fix my own hair! Ha!
Q: Sweet or Salty?
