Hometown: Augusta, GA
Dana Andrews: Born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, Dana Andrews is the self described "Southern Belle" of the group. But as we know of so many lovely, lilting Southern girls, there's often a fierce Steel Magnolia stirring underneath. For as nicely mannered, sweet and full of homespun charm as Dana is, there's a young woman who absolutely commands the stage.
The 22-year old beauty found her music as far back as elementary school when she landed herself in school plays, talent shows-anything that would showcase her wonderful voice. Writing lyrics by the age of 13, Dana also turned poetry to song and by her early teens was soliciting musicians to compose her lyrics and melodies.
For now, the hard working singer is balancing a waitressing job while fronting a band based out of Columbia, South Carolina, as well as performing weekend gigs with a cover band. Ever ambitious and musically open, Dana's work ethic and talent will take her far, with both an infectious smile and a rocking, raised fist in the air. Yes-this is how we like our Southern girls.
