Miss Willie Brown Still in Disbelief About Joining Dierks Bentley on Jagermeister Tour
If you haven't heard Miss Willie Brown yet, you will soon! Amanda Watkins and Kasey Buckley are country music's new dynamic duo who are holding their own.
Miss Willie Brown consists of two talented songwriters and vocalists who have caught the ear of many big-wigs in the business, including Jimmy Kimmel, who invited the duo on his show, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.' It marked the first time an unsigned band took his stage to perform.
While they have paid their dues to get to where they are today, Watkins and Buckley are still waiting for someone to pinch them, realizing they aren't the ones that are supposed to be on such a high-profile tour.
"Until we’re out there and on that stage, I won't believe it's really happening," Watkins tells Taste of Country with laughter. "It's like if you're an actress, you don't 'get the part' until you see yourself up on the screen. I don't even know if this is us reacting yet!"
"The reaction is still happening," Buckley adds. "We love what we do, and we are very grateful, but you know when something that good happens to you ... you kind of feel like someone’s going to find out that you don’t deserve it or that you’ve tricked somebody? That’s how we feel."
"We are very grateful and very blessed to have this opportunity because we love to perform live," Watkins says. "To go out with somebody like Dierks Bentley, who we have mad respect for, and to be a part of that tour ... I can’t ask for anything more."
The Jagermeister Country tour hits a total of 28 cities across the country. The tour's first stop is tonight in Wallingford, Conn. at the Oakdale Theater. Check out the complete list of tour dates here.
Look for the debut single from Miss Willie Brown, 'Sick of Me,' to impact radio in the coming weeks. The duo's new self-titled four-song EP on A&M/Octone Records is now available for digital download on iTunes.
