BIO: Laura is a singer/songwriter from Virginia. She comes from a musical family in which her Dad plays the guitar and her Mom plays the piano, and Laura herself plays the flute, open hole bass, banjo, and piano. She was working an administrative assistant, but got fired from her job because of all the time she spent competing in the Nashville Star competition. If Laura "makes it big," she wants to start her own foundation for breast cancer research (her mother is a cancer survivor). Her musical influences include Sara Evans and Alison Krauss, and she once won a talent contest where the grand prize was to be the opening act for Keith Urban.
PERSONAL STATEMENT: "I'm energetic and I love to laugh, even at myself. I'm an all-American girl who drives a truck and loves animals, especially my dog! I like my music to be simple and from the heart - about families, love, loss, and everyday living."
