Maggie Valley "” Former American Idol contestant Lacey Brown is coming to Maggie Valley. During her "Let it Go" tour she is stopping by to visit her cousin Jo Pinter, former mayor of the town, and is sticking around the mountain hamlet to make a special appearance at Hurley's Creekside & Rhum Bar at 7 p.m. Friday, April 20. Like all shows at Hurley's, there will be no cover.
Since Brown's debut as an American Idol Top 12 finalist in February of 2010, she has appeared as a musical guest and interview subject on "Late Night with David Letterman," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," "Today," "The Wendy Williams Show," "Access Hollywood" and the E! channel. She has been featured as a musical performer who has shared the stage with the likes of Christina Aguilera, Alice Cooper, Janet Jackson, Third Day and others, but has also been a speaker at more than 50 major inspirational events throughout the country just this year.
Brown's voice is a concoction of sweet, yet haunting tones with a hint of Brenda Lee. Along with that vocal uniqueness, Brown believes her greatest gift is the ability to interpret a lyric to evoke emotion in the listener.
She gushes abouther first project as ""¦a collection of five songs, of which, each describes a different facet of me."
With her first album, she is looking to uplift and inspire "” to make people feel deeply and force them to think about things in a simpler way. She wants her music to take people back to a time when things were just said and taken at face value. Brown's promising songwriting abilities are evident in this project, as well. As the sole writer of each song, her writing style is best describedas pop lyrics resting on a bed of American bluegrass and she looks forward to sharing this budding side of her artistrywith her fans.
When asked about all of her past achievements and her future as an artist, Brown simply replied, "Every success I may enjoy in the future will not change the person I was designed to be. As I see it, I've been blessed, but beyond musicaltalent, I've been blessed with health, favor, and the desire to be myself at any cost."
