New Leece on Life
Being born in Morrilton, Arkansas a small rural town Sherry Trotter grew up believing country music was the only form of music there was. She still thinks it is the best form. Sherry began singing in church and school and always had a bug for entertaining. As a child she competed in local talent competitions and sang at every function she could. She continues today. In October 2001 she proudly began work on her debut CD. Completed in May 2002 'A New Leece on Life' contains 12 songs, 9 of which were written by Sherry. In addition to singing, writing has always been one of her passions. Sherry works tirelessly on her music and songwriting. As a result of the hard work she has received numerous awards such as 2003 Star on the Horizon from the Tennessee Country Music Alliance, 2001 Songwriter of the Year (CMOA) Country Music Organization of America, Artistic Achievement Award from Airplay International to name a few.

Her entire family is a part of it and work very hard on her behalf. Sherry believes 'It is so much easier to believe in yourself when those around you love you so much and believe in you.' Along with singing and writing Sherry loves sports and dance. She feels that dance is the physical interpretation for the thing she loves most...MUSIC! Sherry feels that the greatest compliment of all is when someone hears one of her songs and let's her know that they can relate to it or that it touched them in a personal way. People have told her that her music takes them to another place and makes them feel very good. To Sherry that simply means she has done her job. A job that she feels so blessed to have the opportunity to do.
