'Champagne Country' is a collection of country songs that are special to Julie. Classical music was the core of her musical education, but all the while she was raised in the midst of good country musicians and a typical 'down home' culture. If you ask her what her favorite music is, she will most likely say pop, classical, Broadway and others, but her list will not be finished until she has included 'country music.' Julie says the romantic lyrics, often in the form of a 'story,' are an important part of some of her favorite country tunes. However, she also admits to having a soft spot for the upbeat, fun and happy songs. Julie says, 'Although I have never professed to having any particular 'flair' for this genre of music, I perform it regularly, just for the sheer joy of it.' As it turns out, Julie has gained the acclaim and admiration of country music fans, nationwide. This album includes just a few of her favorites. Listen and enjoy this unique approach to country music . . . Champagne Country.
