Amanda Page Cornett~ Q&A!!!

1.    Hi Amanda, can you tell me a little bit about you before you became a country musician?I have been writing songs since I was nine years old, but I was making them up long before that! Music was always the end goal, but I have always been fascinated with how the body works, so in college, I majored in Exercise and Sport Sciences: athletic training. I have always been “cursed and blessed” with well-roundness, so music and athletics have both been a big part of my life.
2.    What was one of the first country album you ever bought?I’m not 100% sure, but the first few albums I remember really impacting me, that I wore out, would be:- Tanya Tucker’s “Greatest Country Hits”,- The Judds “Greatest Hits”- Travis Tritt “Country Club”- Charlie Daniels & Hank Williams Jr. albums
3.    What is the background story behind your brand new single “Throw A Lil’ Gas?”My co-writer, Steve Goodie, and I got together to write, and I had just gotten my first electric guitar, my Elvis pink Squire. Typically, we write comedy songs, but when Steve started playing “Rosie”, “Throw A Lil Gas” just came pouring out as a cool, passionate song.
4.    Is there anything else coming up with your music in 2019?In addition to new videos and gigs, I’m working to build up my fan site on Patreon, where fans can access exclusive material and feel they are really on this journey with me.
5.    How would you describe your music in 3 to 5 words? Southern Rock n Soul
6.    What are some of your favorite venues or events to play at? Anywhere my band and I get to play is amazing. The Almost Angels band, a sibling trio, and I have been playing together for over 8 years. When we are playing, whether in a club or festival or house party, it’s almost impossible for everyone in the room to not have a blast!
7.    What do you hope your listeners and fans take away from your new song?I hope “Throw A Lil Gas” sparks passion in folks, whether in their careers or love lives. If we all dig deep to enjoy and experience life, this would be a happier world!
8.    What is one of your favorite quotes?“If only each day were like a Bible bath; hot, sensual, fully exposed, and at the end, all the dirt were washed away.” ~me
9.    Is there anything else you would like to share? I would love to share the advice that life is too short to not follow your dreams and go after what makes you feel alive!
