“A Little Bit Shania, A Little Bit Loretta, Bridgette is Country With a Capital 'C"”

“Releasing her debut album later this year, with its first single, 'I Like My Cowboys Dirty,' hitting country radio this week. She describes her new music as much different than what's topping the country charts these days, as her sound is a bit ... "greasy"?”

“Our friends at Roughstock.com have been great supporters of Bridgette, and we are thrilled that they have included her in their 'Ones To Watch - Class of 2010.' Bridgette is in the company of major label artists including Danny Gokey, Easton Corbin, Josh Thompson and Laura Bell Bundy.”

“Bridgette and Country Weekly magazine have a gift for you this holiday season - a free download of Bridgette's latest single "(I Like My) Cowboys Dirty." It's easy to do - with just one click, you can get the free download. This offer will expire soon, so grab it today, and tell your friends!”

“Bridgette Tatum, songwriter of "She's Country" and newly signed Root 49 Records recording artist, will release the video for her debut single, "(I Like My) Cowboys Dirty" on the National Finals Rodeo web site on Thursday. She will also perform two nights at the NFR in Vegas on December 5th and 6th.”

“Q: What brought you to music in the first place? A: My mother really, she had a passion for gospel music and she and my dad put together a group that i sang harmonies in growing up.”

““I’m nervous every time a new single comes out,” Aldean said. “One single that doesn’t do well isn’t all that bad. String a couple together, and you may be in trouble. But we came out with ‘She’s Country,’ and it jump-started the best year we’ve had so far. This year has given us”

“Most country fans may not know Bridgette Tatum by name just yet, but they likely know the No. 1 single she co-penned for Jason Aldean, and lately, they just may have seen her in the funny papers.”

“Hell, with that husky vibrato-filled voice of hers, she may even become country music’s own Pat Benatar or Joan Jett or Nancy Wilson. “Cowboys Dirty” should be but the first of quite a few hits for Bridgette.”

“It just so happens that a lady by the name of Mimi told me, 'I'll see you in the funny papers'...since then, I close my show with that quote. How ironic it came true!”
