International Country Music Star Jolie Holliday was born in Dallas, Texas. As a little girl, her mother introduced her to the love of music. By age five, she was belting out tunes for friends and family. Much of her childhood was spent with her grandfather on his ranch, “The Bar T”, in Karnack, Texas. While working together on the ranch, he encouraged her to believe in herself, and taught her that responsibility, determination and faith were the keys to a successful life. She fell deeper in love with country music as the two listened to classic country greats like Tammy Wynette, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Leona Williams & Dolly Parton. She began publicly performing in her early teens.
Jolie’s debut album “A Real Good Day” was tremendously successful, garnering the Dallas native a number of awards, and entering the European charts at #1! She also received the 'Young Talent of the Year Award' at the German CMA Awards as well as Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year at the CMA Indie Awards. Her follow-up album “Lucky Enough” includes soulful country ballads, true to Jolie’s roots, along with up-tempo honky-tonk tunes, which feature her broad vocal range. The single “No Thanks,” reached #1 on the IndieWorld Country Chart. “I’m Coming Home to You” was in the top 20 on the Texas Music Charts. Her latest album “Somebody Who Can” with the new single release “Waffle House” was released in the first week of April 2013.
Jolie was truly honored when asked by Chris Kyle’s family to sing “Soldier” another song from her new CD “Somebody Who Can”, at his memorial service February 2013 at Cowboy Stadium. Jolie’s new record is being dedicated to all of the USArmed Forces, and to Chis Kyle for their services.

With hand clapping, foot stomping, get-up-out-of-your-seat and dance shows that include a medley of her own hits, as well as timeless country favorites, Jolie’s electrifying concerts remain a top priority for this truly gifted performer.
