Scooped up by Nashville’s Music Row Publishing for a year and a half armed her with the right people, material and skills to write, produce and release her recent EP, Country Enough, which has stirred up interest to land her an invite to the Bluebird Cafe this coming Sunday, October 20.
Fans will be thrilled that their support of that EP helped land on just the right ears and now Ciara is in the creative process of writing and producing round two of a three (3) song EP. Stay tuned!
