“It’s just a sound, and a feeling that’s in the music. And you either hear it and appreciate it, or you don’t”. -Emmylou Harris
I met Brenda Lee King at Girls Rock camp last summer. She takes care of all of the equipment and is the technical director to keep everything running smoothly. While country is not usually my first choice of music, the crowds are enthusiastic, the venues are kitchy and Sterns County 17 is great to watch. I love a man in a cowboy hat! I’ve been to see them them at Toby Keith’s and Rollies. Sterns County 17 is: Steve Prosser ( lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Roy Finley (lead vocals, lead guitar), Brenda Lee King (Bass Guitar) ,Corey Lessard (Drums) and Andru Thomas (though he’s left the band).The band features powerful vocalists and a diverse song list of current country hits, timeless country, and rock classics. This band is unique for drawing a multigenerational audience of country and rock fans alike. This summer I’m going to photograph them at a rodeo!
