Brandi is no rookie to the music industry. She began her professional career as a child, eventually performing several hundred fairs and festivals across the Southeastern United States through her teen years. She was featured on the Rosie O’Donnell Show and headlined at Manhattan’s Motown Café. Her original recording, “Out of Time” was liscensed by the Levi Strauss Company for a multi-platform advertising campaign.
She loves to sing country, but is not limited by genre. Her repertoire spans the spectrum of original and cover material, from classic southern rock and R & B, to her own songs, described as “rocked out, attitude country." A uniting factor to these selections is that each song is made unique and new through subtle nuances and Brandi’s natural gift of showmanship.
Brandi grew up in a sleepy small town in Southeast Georgia. She is the second of four girls in her family and remains very close to them though she is often far from “home.” Her musical career began in the First Baptist Church and continued to grow until she left home for college. Brandi is a proud graduate of the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia and cheers for her DAWGS every chance she gets.
When she is not out on the road playing for the fans, Brandi resides in Nashville, Tennessee where she is writing, recording or playing music. She is currently working on writing for her new album.
Brad Paisley, Martina McBride and Dierks Bentley have all experienced Brandi’s high-energy show firsthand; using her as an opening act. Brandi has had the fortune of sharing the stage with country music legends John Anderson, Randy Owen (of Alabama) and her personal hero Dolly Parton (for whom she was a back-up singer and dancer).
The fan club just keeps growing through extensive touring to support her project, “New Place To Start.” Just as comfortable in a tiny honky tonk as in a packed collegiate stadium, one never knows where Brandi Thornton may show up next. It’s a sure bet, she’ll catch your attention.
