Lindsay is an artist who has excelled in her craft since age four, with the determination to make her dreams and aspirations come true.
The driving force behind her musical and acting career has been passion.
That passion, taking her from encore playroom concerts for childhood friends, to sharing the bill at the Grand Ole Opry with country legends, such as; Roy Acuff, Porter Wagoner, Randy Travis, Vince Gill, along with other top stars.
Her career has led to musical contracts in world famous venues in Las Vegas, Nevada, performing various genres of today's most popular music for fans across the world, and home again to Nashville, Tennessee, doing what she loves most: singing country music!
At the youthful age of seven, this green eyed brunette made her first public appearance at the family church, in her native Independence, Missouri.
Lindsay soon became a much sought after performer in church events across the state. Her voice and ability to entertain at such a young age, brought forth an invitation for a musical production to honor President Reagan, at one of his visits to the "Show Me State".
The "mini" solo concerts to taped music and other musical productions fueled the desire that shaped her future in the music industry.
A family move to Houston, Texas inspired her further to follow the dream of entertaining thousands with her captivating voice and entertainment style that many say is "just a breath of fresh air" to watch.
