Heidi Newfield far from a One-Trick Pony (Updated November 28, 2012)
Once the frontwoman of country band Trick Pony, Heidi Newfield's career took a solo detour when she left the group in late 2006 and ventured out on her own. The soulful voice behind the hit "Johnny and June" is a Curb Records recording artist still looking for her real big break.
Newfield, a California native, wanted to be a country star since she was a teen. In 1996, she partnered with Ira Dean and Keith Burns to form the trio Trick Pony. The group would record three albums and have eight singles land on the Billboard country charts, but just one was deemed a big success – 2001's "On a Night Like This."
Once Newfield left the band, she juggled different guest projects until working on her debut solo effort for Curb. The initial single, "Johnny and June" peaked at No. 11 on the country charts in late September 2008. She dug her heels in for a sophomore album, but the project never materialized.
In April 2012, Curb revived Sidewalk Records and inked Newfield as one of the flagship artists for the label. Her first single, "Why'd You Have to Be So Good" was released in mid 2012. Penned by hit makers Jeffrey Steele and Jeremy Popoff, the song is bound to strike an emotional cord with music fans as Newfield returns to the road and to country radio.
