Singer/Songwriter, Amber Hayes will be performing Saturday Night, February 25th at Valor Hall in Oak Grove to raise money for the Red Cross Heroes Fund for the Mid-West Kentucky Chapter which serves six counties. Amber took time from a writing session to visit with Carrie McGinnis during "On The Air With Carrie" Monday, January 30, 2012 on 106.5 WKDZ.
Amber talked about her career and her role models. Amber was influenced early on by Country music, gravitating towards the show-stopping divas that would quickly become her role models: Barbara Mandrell, Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire.
“Reba would play in Tulsa and Oklahoma City every year, and I would always go to both shows,“ Amber remembers. “It was a total experience, rather than just a concert, and that’s something I want to give people in my career.” To learn more about Amber go to www.amberhayesmusic.com
