Some say it takes talent, some say itâ€™s just luck, and some say hard workâ€™s the key. But ask Angie Broberg what it takes to have a career in the music business, and sheâ€™ll tell you it involves all three. â€œOf course it takes a little luck,â€ Angie says, â€œthere are so many talented people in this world! However, I believe the luckiest people are those that work the hardest.â€ And work she has! At the age of 13 this small town Nebraska farmerâ€™s daughter knew that a career in country music was in her future. From the first time she took the stage she realized the passion she had for singing and performing was not going to go away. Upon entering high school Angie began looking for performance opportunities outside of her church and school where she often sang. Soon she was broadening her horizons with performances at local fairs, festivals and benefits throughout the Midwest, headlining shows as well as opening for national acts. With 4 years of touring, one independent record and two years of college at Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska behind her Angie moved to Nashville to pursue a degree in Music Business from the Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business at Belmont University. Just a year later, in the fall of 2004, she was selected as a finalist in the Universityâ€™s Country Music Showcase. In addition to working on her degree and completing internships at both Song Garden Publishing and Sonyâ€™s A&R department, Angie began her career as a songwriter. It didnâ€™t take her long to fall in love with the craft. In 2006 Angie was selected as one of the top six unsigned country artists by the Country Radio Broadcasters. A graduate with honors from Belmont she is now focused on writing and recording new material as well as performing in and around Nashville. She is currently working with producers Chad Carlson (Lauren Lucas, Rachel Proctor) and Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Jesse Lee, Stephanie Chapman), and is very excited to be working closely with those who understand her and her musical style. Angie has been described by various people in the music industry as a professional who has an excellent mix of talent and charm, as well as a refreshing burst of energy that allows her to interact well with her audiences. When asked of her ambitions, Angie says, â€œMy goal is to keep doing what I love to do each day of my life, and thatâ€™s writing and performing music for everyone who will listen! Iâ€™m so blessed to have this opportunity and I hope to be a positive role model for music fans of all ages and genres.â€.
