ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Just by looking at her you'd never guess that Tracey K. was also a truck driver. This little lady can handle a rig like she can a country song. She's about as country and down-to-earth as you can get. A few years ago she got off the road as an OTR driver, and is concentrating more heavily on her music once again.

Born and raised in Western Canada, surrounded by "country music and mountains", she comes by her musical ability naturally.... it runs in the family. All her relatives played and sang and she remembers many a jam session the family would have singing and playing country music from the 40s through 70s. While growing up in Quesnel, B.C. she "discovered" her mother's record collection of country and rock 'n' roll from the 50s and 60s, and was in "heaven"! Her major musical influence is Loretta Lynn, but other favourites include Jean Shepard, Tammy Wynette, Marty Robbins, Faron Young, Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell and Merle Haggard to mention just a few. But it was in Drayton Valley, Alberta where she was exposed to even more country music and where she first met Canadian singer/songwriter Ray Griff, who had a major impact on her life. There's no doubt that Tracey K. has roots firmly planted in country music, which you can't miss when you hear her sing traditional country music.

At age 9, in Quesnel, BC, Tracey K. made her first public appearance playing piano. In '87 she made her stage debut at the Royal Canadian Legion at a Gary Buck show during a Stampede performance in Calgary, Alberta. Afterwards she performed with many bands in the Calgary area, as well as British Columbia and Nashville. In 1991 she recorded a self-titled mini-album; in 1993 her first single "He's Not For Real" peaked at #12 in Europe; in 1997 her second album "Falling For You" (on Rosebud Records) scored a #1 single of the title track on the National Independent Charts in the U.S. in December '97, remaining in the Top 20 for 8 weeks. Her latest album on Songbird Productions (out of Calgary) is entitled "I'm Not the Same Girl" and received plenty of chart action overseas, having received an Award for substantial airplay for the single "Count Me Out". Her single "The Girl In Oklahoma" was a hit on the European charts for FIVE months! It also received significant airplay in the USA. Other singles from the CD include: "Count Me Out", "Deja Blue", "The Middle of the Bed", "I'm Not The Same Girl", "Lonesome", "You're Walkin' & Talkin' In My Sleep Again" and "Hot Steamy Night In Dixie". All of them did really well in Europe and overseas.

Her latest two singles were "You Did Everything Right" and "I Heard The Bluebirds Sing", a duet with Grand Ole Opry star, Jim Ed Brown. They can be heard on her mp3 site www.SoundClick.com/TraceyKHouston
Tracey K has plans to go into the studio again soon.

Currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee, Tracey K. has toured mainly throughout Western Canada and the United States. More recently, she has also been touring with her Loretta Lynn tribute show, "Hey Loretta, The Girl From Butcher Holler". Check out the webpage www.tkhouston.com/heyloretta.htm

Most every year she appears at Fan Fair (now known as CMA Music Festival) in Nashville to meet and chat with old and new fans alike. In 1998 the New York State Country Music Association nominated her as Female Vocalist of the Year. She recently received 3 awards in 2000: An Airplay International "King Eagle Award" ("Artistic Career Achievement"); the Lonestar State Country Music Association's Best of Texas 2000 Awards ("American Horizon Award" and "Canadian Recording Artist"). In 2001 she was awarded "Album of the Year" from the Lonestar State Country Music Association's Best of Texas 2001 Awards for her CD album "I'm Not The Same Girl."

Now this CD is Country - Enjoy
Seldom does one find a CD that touches your heart and soul. "I'm Not the Same Girl" reflects a traditional touch which few artists are able to achieve. Tracey's vocals are reflective of one who is committed to ensuring that traditional country music continues for each of us to enjoy. Here is an artist with loads of class and integrity. Regards; Steve at Country Roads

Pure Country, my favorite is The Girl From Oklahoma,
Tracey, keep up the good work. Theres a lot of fuss over many other Canadian artists but in my opinion non are as clear or as pure country as Tracey is. Hoping that some major record company finally realises the talent this girl has and promotes her
