Dana started singing in public at age 7 and for the last 12 years has performed at many fairs, festivals, and other venues near her home in central Indiana, as well as Illinois and Tennessee. She has opened shows for country stars Josh Turner, Tracy Lawrence, Ty Herndon, Jeff Bates, Trace Adkins, and Craig Morgan. This album is Dana's first with all new songs written by Dana and co-writer Jerry Haire.Loretta Lynn's band, The Coal Miners, along with other Nashville musicians, provide the CD sounds. Dana' music talks about relationship struggles, strength through adversity, and hope for the future, as well as some light-heartedness. The girls will like 'Just Go On' as Dana chides an ex-boyfriend for breaking up with her to go with someone else, so she displays a little 'attitude' when she tells him 'You'd better kiss me cause you're gonna miss me'. 'When the Tears Fall' was written in memory of a school classmate who was killed in an auto accident and certainly shows Dana's emotional side. 'A Guy Like You' has a nice beat to it, and Dana makes it plain she does not want 'An uptight guy, a Harley man, or a mama's boy'. Dana does a great job singing the National Anthem with a little country flavor. She has performed for many organizations, including the Cincinnati Reds, Indiana Pacers, and Indianapolis Colts. Dana actually thinks she was put on this earth to sing, and she just might be right!!!
