CMA Fest 2019 with Missy: Leah Turner

by Missy Wolf / 1855 days ago / Comments

Finally, after years of doing our first interview together, Leah Turner and I were able to meet face to face for an on-camera conversation during CMA Fest. I cannot tell you how happy I was to finally have this moment with Turner. Not only is she a fantastic singer, but she is also one hell of a human being with a heart of gold. 

As we sat for our conversation backstage at Alley Taps during Indie Fest, I could not wait for Turner to share an incredible story with fans about her superhero father saving the day during the CMT Awards. His reaction as she told the story off camera was completely genuine and is a moment that will forever stand out to me. This story simply had to be told again.

For Turner, writing music from the heart is important. Her latest single "Blah, Blah, Blah" is one that is personal and contains actual moments of her life. As we continued chatting about music, the emotions that go with it, and an artists ability to move you, we could not help but discuss many of our favorite artists and the moments we have had with them from Snoop Dog to Nickelback, Leanne Womack, to Lizzo, and everyone in between. 

For more information and to join in on the fun, please watch our full conversation now. Remember to head over to Turner's website for the latest news and updates and do not forget to follow her on social media for even more fun and excitement.

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist & Vice President of the American Country Music Association

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
