"So if you’re gonna do it, do it well. If you’re too scared, then you can bail. Go Big Or Go Home!” Not only the lyrics from a song co-written by Katie Austin, but a motto that she has always lived by no matter what she finds herself up against. This “Give it all you got” persona has led Katie numerous career accomplishments in a short span of time. Competitions, talent shows, festivals and honky tonks are where she spent most of her younger years. She was also honored to have a song she recorded featured on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. Shortly after, Katie did all she could to start networking and learning the inner workings of the music business. Briefly after the first move to Nashville, Katie was offered a spot headlining in “Cowboy’s Dance Hall” venues located across the great state of Texas. For two years, she performed in front of thousands of two-stepping, beer drinking Texans and gained experience that every performer hopes for. She had the pleasure of opening for artists such as Joe Nichols, Rodney Atkins, Big & Rich, Chris Young and many more. Since moving back to Tennessee, Katie has been reconnecting with writers, producers, and music executives. Within weeks of the move, she was asked to perform at the “Get Rich Talent Contest” hosted by John Rich, and has also made appearances at several writers’ rounds around town. Most recently, one of her songs, “Bad Habit”, was released on the Deep 4 Compilation CD. It is available through itunes, Amazon and many more! You can also find Katie on indie3g.com; a live streaming music promotion service. Indie3G chose Katie as a spokesperson for their country channel, “Katie Austin’s Nashville Music”. Music can be streamed to PC’s, Macs, iphones, ipods and many others that support the streaming protocol. Staying busy with her writing and tracking new material in the studio, we will definitely be hearing more from Katie Austin!
