Well summer has come and gone without too much of a ripple as far as new music in the Dallas area, but that all changed when the gorgeous outlaw, Glitter Rose, opened for Bobby Long at Poor David’s Pub on September 1.
Hailing from Fort Worth, TX, Glitter Rose (GR) is a left-handed outlaw that owns the stage with her charisma, charm, and her unique country rock sound. She is down to earth and can get a crowd cheering within moments of singing her first note. With songs like “Doublewide on the Backside” and “Vodka Girls,” GR presents her audience with songs that everyone can relate to.
GR started writing songs when she was only 12 years old. She first started writing country songs, but then transitioned to rock. Now she takes both country and rock and combines them into songs that embrace who she is. In doing so, she has become a strong woman that every girl can look up to. Many of her songs are about embracing who you are and loving every minute of it.
To truly understand how she affects a crowd, you have to experience it. Her voice is one of a kind and is at its best when heard direct from the stage. However, you don’t want to miss out on her full length CD “Southern Comfort” which embodies country rock. You can buy her CD directly from her website, www.glitterrose.com. GR is not only a great performer, but also a huge supporter of several causes. When you purchase one of her CDs, one is shipped to a soldier overseas.
In addition to supporting our troops, GR is an active supporter of The Bridge’s animal support program. This program is set up to help the homeless that are “shelter-resistant,” because they will not leave their pet behind, by providing kennels for those “homeless” pets.
Just to mention a few of GR’s accolades, she has had appearances on Good Morning Texas, has played at PALMS Casino Resort in Las Vegas, and has been asked to perform at the Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood. To add to this list, GR is also honored to be endorsed by Warrior Instruments, Telefunken Elektroakustik, Moody Leather Guitar and Bass Straps, and is a Preferred Artist of C.F. Martin & Co. Acoustic Guitars. The only word that comes to mind is “WOW,” and that just simply enough!
