Win Delana Stevens Signed Stuff ... TODAY!
Basin, Wyoming; no, there's not much to do there. Google the city and you'll find the Big Horn Co-Op and Tom's Caf. It's a quiet place to grow up, not the busy metropolis that would spawn the likes of a super-star.
But let's delve deeper into Basin, WY. Let's say now that you're a young lady living there since birth, who is now desperately yearning to develop her own sense of fashion and wants to do the things most preteens do. You want to visit the mall. You beg your mom to take you. But she's a single mom struggling to keep things together. It's not simple; you don't just jump in the car and drive the 200 or more miles to either Casper or Gillette.
What does all of this have to do with DeLana Stevens? You've just been "Welcomed to Her World." DeLana was born in Basin, WY. Her roots are those of hard work and a serious demeanor. To succeed, you study the lay of the land. To learn to sing, you just Do It!
DeLana sang along with everything she heard; Wynonna, Dottie West, and Bonnie Raitt. She wailed to the sounds of Aerosmith and cried along with Johnny Cash. Music became DeLana's only desire. By age 13, DeLana Stevens developed a voice with salt, smoke and soul that poured out, whether tending to a low key ballad or belting out an up tempo country-rocker with plenty of strength and sass.
Once again, DeLana approached her mother with a trip in mind. This time it wasn't the 200 mile trip to a shopping mall that DeLana begged from her mother, it was the trip to music city, Nashville, TN. Mom said yes, packing up her 13 year-old daughter and hauling her dreams half way across the US.
Nashville is a tuff town that should have a warning to potential musicians "Enter At Your Own Risk" on its Welcome sign; but it doesn't. Some aspiring 'stars' who travel to music city, return home, defeated and facing the fact that success isn't as easy as it looks. Not DeLana Stevens. Her grit grew out of the rural Wyoming earth. After conquering the obligatory new talent contests and developing a studio style all her own, DeLana Stevens, seeking validation, placed her heart and songs on the internet. By May of 2005, DeLana Stevens eclipsed the 160,000 download/plays mark on download.com!
She was signed to Mach One records late in 2005 and is well on her way. Her first project, "Welcome to My World" was recorded in Nashville, and is due out in the summer of 2006. "Welcome to My World" is already setting radio on its ear. No surprise, coming from a girl who was raised by 'radio'.
So, if you would like to win some AUTOGRAPHED CDs and 8x10 photos, just answer this easy question: Her first project, “Welcome to My World” was recorded in which famed Studio in Nashville?!
