Livin on Love
MEMPHIS NATIVE APPEARS AT FARM AID (Nashville, Tenn.) - Country music singer, Kitty Jerry, from Memphis, Tenn., performed at Farm Aid this weekend in Seattle. A newcomer to the Nashville music scene, Kitty was given the honor to perform with major label artists, such as Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Trick Pony. Jerry who has been a long-time fixture in the Memphis music scene, has recently ventured outside of her hometown to pursue her dream in the country music industry. Performing at Farm Aid for her first 'real' performance, was the opportunity of lifetime time for her, and her career is predicted to only go up from there. Jerry performed three songs from her debut album, Livin' On Love, which included, 'Whole Lotta Country,' which she wrote, 'Livin' On Love,' and 'Your River's Done Run Dry.' Her performance received rave reviews from dozens of music critics, as well as Neil Young and Willie Nelson. Jerry's producer, Ben Keith, producer for Jewel, was thrilled with her performance and is confident she has a long, successful road ahead of her. For Kitty, Farm Aid wasn't just a great opportunity to perform, it was for a cause that really hit home to her and is something she believes in. When asked why she attended Farm Aid, she said, 'I'm a mother and I have three boys who all had ADD. I listened to what the world was telling me and kept giving them drugs to cure this illness, but it didn't seem to help. But, my husband and I stopped letting them eat processed food and changed their diet to include farm-grown, organic food. Now that we've changed their diet, my two oldest boys are completely cured from ADD and my youngest son is 50% better.' After Jerry's performance at Farm Aid, her future looks bright and is sure to become the next female Charley Pride.
