With her gritty vocals yet smooth delivery, country newcomer Sonia Leigh is a standout artist. Catching the attention of Grammy
winning Zac Brown, he signed Leigh (also a fellow Georgian) to his own record label, Southern Ground Artists. Releasing her
debut album this year, 1978 December, her first single is the catchy, buoyant groove, "My Name Is Money." Written from the
perspective of cash itself, her captivating ditty shows both her talent and her witty sense of humor. This is an artist and
performance you'll want to see.
