Eastfield College Hosts Up and Coming Nashville Artist

Natalie was born and raised just outside of Nashville, TN. Since her first professional gig singing and playing the fiddle at the age of 10, Natalie has already seen things that most artists could only dream of. She's performed everywhere from Oprah to the Grand Ole Opry. She was the first performer ever to be invited to sing "God Bless America" for the President at the White House Press Correspondents Dinner. And surprisingly, she has done all of this with no record deal of any kind.
