Since the release of her debut album in 2000, Jamie O’Neal has been impacting country music with her soulful voice and the immense amount of passion behind every word she sings. Fast forward to now and the Australia-born hitmaker is making an impact in more ways than ever. On the heels of recording new music, O’Neal has entered into another year in her illustrious career, and is working in new territory as an artist mentor and producer to various artists that are in different stages of their careers; sharing her craft with artists to develop their songwriting and sound, and ultimately helping them to further their careers and dreams.
Throughout Country Radio Seminar 50, to be held Feb. 13-15, O’Neal will introduce these artists to radio and industry executives who are in attendance during the three-day event. Coined “The Breakout Room,” and held in Music Row #3, emerging artists QUEEVA, Bailey Hefley, South of Somewhere, and JoyBeth Taylor will perform at various times throughout the conference.
O’Neal will also perform new music, which will be released later this year. The suite will offer snacks and beverages at various times throughout the days.
While O’Neal serves as producer/mentor, she has a support team surrounding her, including her father – veteran music industry great Jimmy Murphy, who has been hands-on with his daughter from age eight when she began singing with her family. O’Neal became a household name with her single, “There Is No Arizona,” which set her path to stardom on fire with multiple No. 1 hits and 2 Top 5 records as well as and many career accolades to follow, including four GRAMMY nominations, ACM Top New Artist and Billboard Top New Artist. She has toured with Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Alan Jackson and more, and her songs landed on the soundtracks of Bridget Jones’ Diary, When We Were Soldiers, as well as on the ABC smash Desperate Housewives. She has also appeared on numerous national television programs, including multiple appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood and many others.
