Natalie Stovall and The Drive with Special Guests
Whether it’s Natalie Stovall’s breathtaking vocals and larger-than-life stage presence, her band’s turbo-charged, take-no prisoners live shows, or the collective unit’s barnstorming worldwide tours, Natalie Stovall and The Drive prove they are arena ready. A humble, charismatic entertainer with a trademark lion’s mane of big blonde hair, Natalie and her powerful vocals and sparkling fiddle leave audiences spellbound.
Although she can seem larger than life onstage, offstage she’s as down home and as easy-going as can be. One-on-one sincerity and a contagious personality just come naturally to this small town girl from Columbia, Tennessee. Make no mistake though, as soon as you put this small town girl in front of an audience – something spontaneous, mesmerizing, and explosive happens.
Natalie has been playing professionally since she was ten, and performed everywhere from the White House to the Oprah Winfrey Show. “I started violin lessons at the age of four after my granny saw an ad in the Columbia paper for a new violin teacher in town” says Natalie. “Looking back, I’m not even sure if I really knew what I was getting into. I think I just knew it involved me being on stage and that’s all I needed.”
Natalie’s musical influences might span from the high-energy shows of Shania Twain and Garth Brooks to legends like Michael Jackson and Aerosmith, but make no mistake, her country roots run deep. ”Growing up performing at Opryland, I was always around the Opry and following all the country stars… I spent hours dreaming of being on that stage, “ says Natalie. At the age of 12, her dream came true when she made her Grand Ole Opry debut.
The Drive’s seven–year journey has been forged like fine steel with the durable attributes of family values and hard work. Performing over 200 dates a year, they were named Entertainers of the Year in 2012 by Campus Activities Magazine and returned this Summer from the Middle East on one of their many Navy Entertainment Tours in support of our troops across the globe.
Led by multi-instrumentalist and lead vocalist Natalie Stovall, The Drive includes drummer James Bavendam from Seattle, Chile’s Miguel Cancino on guitar, Zach Morse from Cheyenne, Wyoming on bass and vocals and Redding, California guitarist and vocalist Joel Dormer.
