Dawn Sears won her first talent contest at the VFW hall in Grand Forks, North Dakota when she was 14 – right across the river from where she grew up – in East Grand Forks, MN. And she kept on winning after she moved to Minnesota to play the clubs. When she was 17—and with her parents’ cautious consent—she began touring with a band throughout the West and Midwest. “It wasn’t music that brought me to Nashville [in 1987],” she confesses, “ it was Kenny Sears. Kenny and I met in Las Vegas in 1986. I was playing in the Sahara Lounge with my band, and he was playing the showroom with Mel Tillis. I knew I had found my so-called ‘knight in shining armor’ from the first moment I saw him. We were married six months after we met.” She got her first break in Nashville when TV personality Ralph Emery asked her to sing on his morning show. That led to a contract with Warner Bros. Records in 1991 and the release of three well-received singles. In 1992, Vince Gill invited her to go on the road as a backup singer, a role she still occupies.

I think she has one of or the best singing voice of any one female in Nashville, I would put her and Martina McBride on the top of my list. Her harmony with Vince is just the best ever.

SHE IS THE BEST FEMALE COUNTRY SINGER OUT THERE AT THIS TIME, EXCEPT FOR McBRIDE. Her time is coming SOON.

Thanks for being so sweet to a fawning fan at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and special thanks for coming to California.
Dawn, hope I can see you at Casino Rama one day with Vince!
I sat front row at the Hamilton in DC last night (Feb 7th). What a treat. Your "Sweet Memory" was my favorite of the night, although there were a lot of others in second place. What a voice you have! I've heard the Time Jumpers many times in Nashville, but last night's concert was special. Thanks for coming to my town.
