Misty Dawn -- yes, that is her real name -- is self-aware enough to be able to laugh about the fact that her parents gave her a name that would lead you to believe she’s a 1970s adult film star, not a country singer. With a theatrical attitude to match, the Texas native has embraced her name by adding a little bit of flare to her style of country music. She calls her brand of country “Show Country,”-- a callback to her Texas roots while also honoring her theatrical side.
You would never know it from listening to songs such as “Good in Goodbye,” but Misty was not a country music superfan growing up. She preferred jazz standards, broadway showtunes, oldies and church hymns. Though when her career turned to writing and performing original music, she found that her soul drew inspiration from those genres, but also from country legends such as Reba, Shania Twain, Kitty Wells, and Patsy Cline. As Misty herself can admit, “you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the girl.”
