Born and raised on a farm near Paris, Missouri, Becky Blackaby was always entertaining her family. It wasn't until after college that Becky finally came to the realization she could actually have a career in something she truly loved...singing and performing. Later, Becky began writing her own songs and in late 2010, released her first single on the Country Breakout™ Chart. Playing with the same bandmates since 2010, Becky’s band helped form the sound of Kelly's Got a Boyfriend, her co-written single which has received airplay on over 80 stations across the country.
It has been an exciting few+ years to watch Becky Blackaby’s journey. After becoming a State Finalist three consecutive years in the Colgate Country Showdown, in 2007, Becky became an "Elite 8" Finalist in CMT's Music City Madness II Contest, as Becky’s fans voted for her original song and video, Eye Games. “I am soooo thankful for that contest and the support everyone gave me, because it put me on the map.” In 2008, Becky started making frequent trips to Nashville, TN, to collaborate with others in the music industry and began playing writer’s nights at several venues in Nashville, including The Commodore Lounge, The Listening Room, and Dan McGuinness. In 2011, Becky was featured on The Tennessean and Fox 17 Nashville News when she auditioned for the National Anthem for the Nashville Sounds MLB team. Becky has also been a featured news story on KOMU-8 TV, WGEM-13 TV & KHQA-7 TV, as well as in The Little Dixie Weekender, Cattleman's Advocate, and Inside Columbia magazines.
Becky's drive to succeed is obvious. Her playful demeanor and warm smile counter a very serious side – the side you need to make life-changing commitments and to take consistent action in a business that isn’t kind. Becky juggles a busy schedule as a wife, mother, working part-time as a speech-language pathologist, and maintaining a steady performance schedule. Becky writes her own music, has independently sold over 1,000 CDs, and opened shows for artists such as Steel Magnolia, Josh Thompson, The Jane Dear Girls, Randy Houser, Little Texas, Shooter Jennings and Cowboy Crush, all of which exemplify her quest to entertain.
You get a total package when Becky performs. She's an entertainer with stage presence, marketability, and talent...with the vocals to back it up.
