Cherie grew up singing with her family full time on the road in evangelism, touring churches, fairs and festivals. Music wasn’t her only passion that began at an early age. Theater was a big part of her life as well. She started on her first album at 5 years old after she was signed with a talent agent and was able to flourish not only in music but started acting as well, appearing in various musical theater productions.
Moving to Nashville at the age of 20, Cherie began singing background vocals in the studio and on tour for Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Gretchen Wilson, Martina McBride and Amy Grant. Cherie would make her debut TV appearance on the premiere season of NBC’s hit series The Voice, and find herself on Christina Aguilera’s team.
After building a grassroots following on the singer-songwriter circuits, Cherie signed with Number One Group in 2017 and started work on her debut EP under the wings of ACM and CMA award-winning producer Dann Huff which will premiere in the summer of 2019. Her first single from the EP, “Work It”, is available now on all online streaming platforms. CMT called the song the “sonic love-child” of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s “Bang, Bang” and Christina Aguilera’s “Fighter” for a country audience.
She would score a breakthrough as a writer when Reba McEntire charted her 60th Top 10 career single with Turn on the Radio penned by Cherie, Mark Oakley and J.P. Twang. The song would go all the way to #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart on January 1, 2011. The song has over 8 million views on YouTube alone now and is still going strong.
