A&M/OCTONE’S MISS WILLIE BROWN RELEASES FIRST MAJOR LABEL EP
Spring Tour With Country Music Star Dierks Bentley Begins March 17
2011 Tour Kick-Off Show Planned For
Tues. In Nashville
Nashville, TN – March 14, 2011 – A&M/Octone Records’ firstcountry act Miss Willie
Brown is set to release their first major label EP digitally tomorrow. Kasey Buckley
and Amanda Watkins—usually found finishing each other’s sentences,
talking over each other, making each other laugh andcry—are the two singers and
songwriters who make up Miss Willie Brown, and the release of their self titled EP
marks the arrival of a dynamic new duo in country music.
Produced by award winning producer Keith Stegall (Zac Brown Band, Alan Jackson,
George Strait), the four track EP includes the up-tempo and funked-up tracks “Sick of Me,”
“Good Fight” and Couyan Crazy.” It also covers tender emotional territory with “Freeland,”
the story of two women waiting for their men to return from fighting overseas. Kasey and
Amanda wrote and both sing lead vocals on all four tracks.
“Keith really jumped into our heads in terms of knowing what we like,” says Amanda,
while Kasey adds that, “Amanda and I made a promise to each other a long time ago
that we would do whatever was best for the song. It’s hard to do a lot of the time, because
interests conflict and collide…but the song is everything to us. And now we’ve put some
of those songs we love to play live on this EP, so we could get out on the road and hopefully
start building a fanbase show by show. We want to tour hard…like the guys do!”

Miss Willie Brown will celebrate the EP’s release and the start of their first major tour with
a special show Tues. at the Rutledge in Nashville at 6 P.M. Immediately following the show,
the duo will head out for a 30 date run on the JAGERMEISTER COUNTRY TOUR
FEATURING DIERKS BENTLEY.
