With a long-standing career of over thirty years in the music business Atlanta, Georgia native Monica is ready to cross over genres and try some new things after revealing that she is currently working on a country music album!
Following a growing love for Country music since she was a little girl, Monica revealed in a recent interview with Billboard that she’s currently in the process of creating a Country album.
“I grew up loving country music and my stepfather, who raised me, is a Methodist minister, but he also drove buses, and he would take us to Nashville, Gatlinburg and Dollywood in Tennessee,” Monica explained.
“I became a really big fan of Dolly Parton at about eight or nine years old. That was my real introduction to country music.”
She continue, “I started listening to the depth of the songs and the fact that they were unafraid to say whatever it was they felt. I felt like this was a great time for me to really step into an area that I’ve always admired and loved.”
Monica goes on to say she’s been welcomed with open arms, receiving features on records from Country music elites Jimmie Allen, Little Big Town, Dolly Parton, Rita Wilson and Sara Evans.
