Whether taking a late afternoon hike or playing for a room full of fans, one thing is clear about Whitney Duncan – this small town girl hasn’t lost sight of her country roots. Born in the small town of Scotts Hill, TN – population 911 – this no-nonsense contemporary country singer grew up with a close-knit family and a passion she discovered at a young age.
"I was a grandaddy's girl," she says. "I remember being at their house when I was four or five, sitting in front of the TV watching Elvis videos with him. I knew when I first watched Elvis, 'That's what I want to do!”
Knowing that performing was her calling, Whitney spent many of her early years, with the support of her parents, singing in front of audiences big and small.
"I dragged my parents everywhere, every weekend almost," she says. "There was always a strawberry festival or a barbecue festival, and we would take trips to Kentucky, Missouri, and wherever else I could for a chance to perform"
After years of performing, Whitney made her way to Nashville where she grew into her own as an artist. She has worked with top-shelf producers including Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts) and John Shanks (Kelly Clarkson, Sheryl Crow). She has developed such close relationships with her Nashville producers, they gifted her with a Lake Placid Blue Fender Strat electric guitar.
Whitney also began to find her place as a successful songwriter, collaborating with hit songwriters such as Hillary Lindsey, Gordy Sampson, Chris Tompkins and Kara DioGuardi. Whitney co-wrote every song on her debut album, Right Road Now, released in response to fan demand (they even chose one of the tracks on the album) in 2010.
In Spring of 2010, Whitney had the unique and unforgettable opportunity to travel overseas to visit and play for the troops in Iraq and Kuwait. The trip made a significant impact on Whitney and her bandmates, it even inspired a tattoo.
Whitney’s new tattoo isn’t the only result of her inspiration from overseas. This and other amazing experiences Whitney has had over the last few years of her career are serving as material for her new project. Currently, she is in the studio with producer Patrick Davis working on new music. Her anxiously awaiting fans can expect to hear new material from Whitney in 2011.
