Sherrié Austin has a sound uniquely her own. Her arrangements are often built around chiming acoustic guitars, sparkling mandolins, evocative fiddle lines, and the occasional ripple of the steel guitar. "I'm tiny, so screaming over a wall of electric guitars isn't comfortable," Austin has said. "I'd rather bring people in, draw them close and find a way to use the dynamics of my voice." Born in Sydney, Australia, Austin has been entertaining people and singing country music practically from her birth. At the age of 14, she got her "big break" by being asked to open for Johnny Cash's 1985 Australian tour and eventually was invited to Nashville by the Australian Country Music Association. She has went on to pen hits for A-list artists like George Strait, Tim McGraw and Trace Adkins while incorporating the influences such as Lee Ann Womack and Tammy Wynette.
