Nashville's Natalie Stovall mixes old country, pop

KALAMAZOO — Natalie Stovall began writing music when she was 11 years old, but didn’t tell anyone about it.

This spring, she will release her second record, and having opened for Gretchen Wilson, Little Big Town and The Doobie Brothers, she is well prepared for her upcoming concert at Western Michigan University’s Bernhard Center Wednesday.

“I always knew it was something I wanted to do,” Stovall said of songwriting during a phone interview while on the road with her band in Chicago.

Though she got her start as a child singing and playing the fiddle in the Opryland Kids Club at the Grand Ole Opry, she didn’t quite bloom as a creative artist until beginning school at Berklee College of Music in Boston. While there, she often drove back to Nashville, Tenn., to perform shows. It was the beginning of life on the road for Stovall.
“I really do write about my own life,” the 28-year-old singer said. “I write at my best when no one else is around. On trips back and forth to Nashville I wrote my first album.”

The Columbia, Tenn., native now resides in Nashville, where she knows she belongs after getting a taste of the East Coast.

She awaits the release of her second record, an EP titled “Standing My Ground,” a follow-up to her 2006 record, “Late Night Conversations.” Though she works well as a solo writer, Stovall worked with others on the new album and said it was a good experience to have other perspectives in the room.


“I really enjoy writing with other people because it gives you a sounding board,” Stovall said.

Stovall said she’s looking forward to using her Kalamazoo audience as a sounding board as well, because performing live is the best way to see which songs are popular and which ones need work.

“It’s really one of the best ways that I’ve been able to get out there and see how my music is resonating with people. It’s kind of an old school mentality,” Stovall said.

Her musical influences include country artists, such as Garth Brooks and Shania Twain, said the self-professed “radio girl.” At the WMU show, she’ll sing her version of “Devil Went Down to Georgia,” some originals and a cover medley with “everything from Zeppelin to Michael Jackson.”

Though country-influenced, her songs have a definite pop quality.

Her single “Whatever It Takes” tells a fairytale romance story with a strong female heroine. The strong female theme is driven home by her powerhouse voice during the chorus as she promises to save her love.

Her cover of “Devil Went Down to Georgia” is a regular at her shows, showcasing her fiddle talents in the Charlie Daniels classic.
