CMT Nom for Newfield’s “Johnny and June”

bio1It’s not often that a country singer manages to step up to solo stardom after becoming closely identified with a successful group. Wynonna’s post-Judds career comes to mind. And now there’s Heidi Newfield. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that the former Trick Pony singer turned to producer Tony Brown, who oversaw Wynonna’s debut, when it came time to make her own solo statement. Whatever the reason, “Johnny and June,” the leadoff single from her first solo effort, What Am I Waiting For, hit the Top 10, putting the singer in some rare company.  Along with Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood, Newfield is one of only four solo women in country to have had a Top 10 single in 2008.  She’s also the first female to score a Top 10 hit with her debut single since Swift’s “Tim McGraw.” And with her sophomore single, the title song from What Am I Waiting For, picking up steam, it looks like Newfield is decidedly not just another one trick pony. She’s recently been covered in Billboard, Blender, Country Weekly, First for Women, The New York Times, People, and USA Today. In addition, the singer has been featured on CNN,, Gannett News Wire, Associated Press, “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” CBS TV,, TV and more.
