Myra began singing and performing at a very young age. She was in her first band at the age of 16. She performed for many years until she decided to put her singing career on hold to raise a family. Now years later and with encouragement from her family, Myra is back onstage doing what she loves.
In 2005, upon entering a County fair singing competition Myra caught the attention of the producer with her rendition of Leann Rimes “Ten Thousand Angels”. With further encouragement from that producer and her family, Myra is back performing at many music festivals, fairs, private and corporate events where she has had the pleasure of opening for many Major Recording Artists, whom have had great things to say about her performance. In 2008, Myra recorded her first classic country CD at Gene Breeden Studios in Nashville, TN. “This is Forever” proved to be a fan favorite.
In January 2012, Myra kicked off the year with the filming of her first national television appearance. The Shotgun Red Variety Show was filmed on the General Jackson showboat in Nashville TN and aired on RFD TV in April. A video of Myra’s performance can be found on her website www.myrarolen.com.
Her second national television appearance on “The Texas Pickin Party” was filmed in May and is set to air Dec of 2012 on the Rural Network, RFD’s sister channel. A video of Myra’s performance can be found on both her web site www.myrarolen.com and the Texas Pickin Party web site http://texaspickinparty.tv/show/
Her second album “Tonight Darlin” which is a compilation of original material written with a traditional country and western swing style was released in May 2012. The c.d. is receiving great reviews from Myra’s piers, radio and fans. The singles “I Can’t Love You Anymore” and “Piece of Heaven” are receiving lots of radio play both abroad and in the states.
Myra is very pleased to announce that in January of 2013 she was added to THE PRETTY WORLD RECORDS LABEL. Her first single, “Walk Out Backwards” is to be released late February 2013 and they are expecting big things to come from this young lady. She is also collecting material for her third traditional country album and is gathering material for a gospel album that she hopes to be released mid 2013. The gospel album will include her rendition of Ten Thousand Angels and ole time favorites.
Myra loves to perform and receives high praise from the crowds at each performance. Her attitude and charm makes her a crowd pleaser. It’s hard to find such a performer that enjoys each and every performance as much as Myra does.
