CMA Fest 2019 with Missy: Cherie Oakley

by Missy Wolf / 1786 days ago / Comments

When an even like CMA Fest comes to an end, there is always a plethora of emotions running through me. While I am relieved that I have made it through the four-day country music festival in one piece, I am saddened that the constant reunions with artists I have bonded with such as Cherie Oakley and ongoing performances are suddenly halted. 

Having met Oakley while filming our live music show Center Stage Live At The 615 Hideaway, I was thrilled to be able to visit with her during CMA Fest. When I realized that she was my last interview inside the media room at Music City Center, I could not have been happier. I knew that we were going to have fun and end this event together on a high note.

As anticipated, my conversation with Oakley was a lot of fun and I was extremely excited that she brought me her new EP to listen to before its release. If you have heard her popular single "Work It" which is getting a lot of spins on radio and has been added to Radio Disney Country, then you already know that Oakley has amazing vocals. If you were a fan of Oakley while she was on The Voice, then you are even more familiar with the talent that is showcased beautifully on her debut EP. I am absolutely obsessed with her voice and ability to make me feel.

They will love you for it. ~Missy

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!
