What happens when four of Nashville’s best singers get together on stage?
MAGIC!!! When Etta Britt and Sheila Lawrence came up with the concept of a female
quartet, they brainstormed on who would be a good fit. As soon as Jonell Mosser
and Vickie Carrico’s names were mentioned, there was no doubt in their minds it
was right. And right it was.They booked a show at Green’s Grocery, in Leiper’s Fork and it sold out quickly. They decided to play an early show at 3rd and Lindsley, on a week night and when they arrived, there was a line down the sidewalk with people waiting to get aseat, they knew they had hit on something great and Kentucky Thunder has been
thrilling audiences ever since.
Each of the women has had a successful career on their own. Jonell has been playing to sold out shows, recorded her own records and performed with some of the biggest artists in the music industry. She is a Nashville favorite with a voice like an angel.
Sheila is one of Nashville’s great songwriter’s. She has recorded her songs and
played to packed houses for years. She never fails to get the crowd on their feet.
Vickie is one of the group’s most seasoned performers. She has been in recording
studios, on stage and writing songs for over 30 years. With her big voice and
spunky stage presence, she lights up the stage and puts a smile on everyone’s
face, especially her band mates.
Etta came to Nashville after joining RCA recording group “Dave and Sugar.” Her
experience with group singing has been an asset to Kentucky Thunder. She has
also shared the stage and studio with many great artists. Her funky moves and
distinctive voice always makes the audience get on their feet and dance.
When the four women come together and share their talents with each other, you
can feel a sisterhood like no other. They are truly sisters in song. When you get
the chance to experience a Kentucky Thunder show, be ready to be whipped into
a frenzy. They never fail to thrill.
