Vocalist Julie Roberts is bringing her sweet country sounds to Midnight Rodeo. Over the years, country music fans have celebrated Roberts’ music, with her first two albums together selling one million copies. She’s also appeared on a variety of television shows ranging from “The Tonight Show” to “Good Morning America.” Even after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and losing her home in a flood, Roberts maintained her career’s momentum.
Throughout her four-album catalog, Roberts demonstrates an artistic versatility that appeals to country fans both old and new. Her style resonates with respect to both classic and modern country. Her vocal work on the single “Why Can’t I Have You” is a sugary delivery cut with lyrical heartbreak.
Fellow country diva Ashton Shepherd will prepare the crowd for Roberts. Shepherd pulls her tracks from the heart of the honky-tonk, and will fill her set with brazen vocal work on impressive country anthems.
