Interview with Debby Smith from Canada

Interview with Country singer Debby Smith from Canada

Debby Smith, a really nice woman, with the heart on the right spot, she lives in British Columbia, Canada. In her near environment, there is the oil and gas industry, as the major employer in that area.

Debby is singing since she was 5 years old and she never stopped…it was always her special dream to become a country singer. She loves photography and indulges it, whenever she can and as often as possible. Debby Smith has been in a couple of bands over the years, she did sing in the church and at a lot of weddings. But there was always this dream and then she started to focus a different way. In earnest a little late out the gate, but she had been waited all of her life, to pursue music, and now the time is right for her. A lot of people see now what a good artist she is, even though, she is already over 50 years, her love and devotion for country music is as young as her voice and the youthful and passionate music Debby is performing is really wonderful. Debby married at a very young age, she was only 17 years old, but she still loves her husband, like the first day they met. To be married to the same man for 35 years, shows how consistent and faithful Debby is. She is not only the perfect wife for her husband; she is also a wonderful, warm hearted woman, friendly, caring and very loyal and not to forget a real good country singer.


Gaby: 
Music has many new fans throughout Europe, they may hear about you for the first time. How would you describe yourself and the music you make, to someone who has never seen, or heard about you?

Debby: 
I have been blessed to record some great tracks. I like to sing songs that I hope touch people. I like to sing thoughtful songs. I like to sing emotional songs, not necessarily sad ones, and happy songs too, but songs that evoke some kind of emotion.

Gaby: 
Your current single is played on the radio worldwide at the radio station of venom in Spain. What made it so special, that people wanna hear that song?

Debby: 
I hope people want to hear this song. It is a beautiful song it is called “You Can Always Reach Me” It is letting people know that if we want to, we can reach each other.

Gaby: 
What kind of songs, you like to record?

Debby: 
I like ballads. I like any genre, but I am singing Country and I love it.
I do like to spice things up with a fast beat song as well. I just love recording
No matter what it is I sing.

I can tell that this is true; because yesterday was my birthday and Debby send me “Happy Birthday” wishes and asked me, what kind of song, I would love to hear, she could sing a lot, she said. So I told her I love “Mary Did You Know”. She told me than, to be sorry, but she didn´t had that song in her repertoire and she send me another real good song called “How Great Thou Art”, Debby singing it very good…I really loved it. Later when I looked at my messages there was another message of Debby in it, she send me the song I loved “Mary Did You Know”. She got him and she was singing it……just for me…That song was amazing and it was terrific what Debby did, just to make my day. I can say that this woman is a real good entertainer, who manage 1000 things in a wink….And hereby I thank you again for that wonderful song, that touched my heart….love you for that!

Gaby: 
What is your favorite song among all the songs you have recorded and what is the story behind?

Debby: 
I have to say “You Can Always Reach Me”, is one of my very favorites. It has a great message. It has great music behind it. It is just a great song. I fell in love with it the first time I heard the track

Gaby:  Who inspires you in music and how deep are your musical roots?

Debby: 
I am inspired by so many people, too numerous to say. I grew up around music. My Uncle had a band going pretty much all of my growing up years. They would have these huge jam sessions at night (when I was supposed to be in bed sleeping) and it was so exciting I couldn't sleep and sometimes they would let me get up and I would take it all in, and try to participate where I could. I was quite young, maybe 7 or 8 years old when I remember first really paying attention to the jam sessions, which took place in my grandparent’s house. Even though Country Music was starting to change, and I grew up around country, they played and listened to old country classics. It was a great time.


Gaby: I thank you very much for this interview, you are a great personality, I love your songs and I hope to meet you in person some day. I know that you make your way!

Otis Head dies at 94

Veteran bluegrass radio host, Appalachian musician and Western stunt performer dies at 94


     Harmonica stylist and 60-year radio host Otis Head, age 94, of the Plainview Community, died Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at Heritage Health Care in Fort Oglethorpe, Ga. He was born near Prater’s Mill, North of Varnell, Ga. at Gobbler’s Knob. 
     Head was also a prizefighter, Western and Appalachian music promoter and performer and record producer. He began his performance career competing on a talent show in “Doc” Chamberlain’s Medicine Show hosted by country legend Rambin’ Tommy Scott in the late 1930’s.
     As a producer, he fostered the careers of multi-million selling banjo stylist Raymond Fairchild; country singer Clyde Beavers and numerous bluegrass and gospel acts. He hosted seasonal western shows in Florida and North Carolina featuring an array of western-themed street plays featuring gunfights for audiences in western theme parks. Head was a quick draw pistol artist and usually played the role of the town marshal in the productions.
     He promoted music shows in the Northwest Georgia area featuring Country Music Hall of Famers Bill Monroe and Charlie Louvin, Boys from Indiana, the Bailes Brothers, the Lewis Family, Randall Franks and Raymond Fairchild. His “Otis Head Show” and it predecessors ran on Dalton area radio for almost 60 years with his final live broadcast on WTTI in March 2014. He began hosting live radio shows featuring country and bluegrass in 1959 on WBLJ. He moved to WRCD for 28 years and finally settled at WTTI sharing bluegrass gospel for 27 years.
     Head was an entrepreneur and entertainer that opened the Plainview Superette, a grocery store and restaurant, famous for his Otis Burger, north of Dalton, Ga. in the 1940s. Working to meet the changing needs of the community, his business location changed its focus from food to clothing, shoes to videos and finally to a tanning and hair salon.
     He was a volunteer of the Share America Foundation donating his time to raise funds for scholarships encouraging youth in Appalachian music. Head was highlighted in Ramblin “Doc” Tommy Scott’s autobiography “Snake Oil, Superstars and Me” in 2007. He was inducted into the Atlanta County Music Hall of Honor for his contributions to music in 2008.
     He was preceded in death by his parents, Daniel and Cleo Head; his first wife, Floy Felker Head; his second wife, Mary Pittman Parris; brothers, Euelle, Floyd, Basil, William, and Dewey Head; sisters, Ruby, Edith, and Betty.
     He is survived by his sons, Kenneth O. Head of Atlanta, Chris Davidson of Dalton, Judy (John) Hayes of Dalton; sister, Alise Cline of Palm Bay, Florida; grandchildren, Holly and Keith Rollins, Shana and Jim Medlen both of Dalton, and Glen and Danette Head of Memphis, TN; seven great-grandchildren; special niece, Connie Long; step-children, nephews, nieces; long time friends, Randall Franks, Don and Pam Poteet, Deborah Jones and listeners also survive.
     The funeral service to honor the life of Mr. Head is Friday April 11, 2014 at 12:00 pm at the Pleasant Grove Chapel of Julian Peeples Funeral Home with Minister Brother Doyle Partin and Randall Franks officiating. Burial will be in Varnell Cemetery.
     In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the following: Central Church of Christ building fund, PO Box 1527 Dalton GA 30720 or the Share America Foundation, Inc., P.O. Box 42, Tunnel Hill, Ga. 30755 (www.shareamericafoundation.org) or the American Cancer Society.
