NASHVILLE, Tenn. - From Broadway NYC to Broadway Nashville, Rachel Potter is trying to start over in a genre that has had her heart since she was a child. "I used to design album covers when younger. I loved Faith and Martina and watched CMT in my bedroom all the time" says Potter.
But after college, Rachel was bit by the theater bug. "I auditioned for Disney. I was The Little Mermaid, Nemo, Belle in Beauty In The Beast."
Her Broadway career took off and she starred in musicals like The Addams Family, Wicked and most recently Evita. But in her free time Rachel was writing and recording, preparing for her country debut and this past year finally released a six song EP that features her single "Live The Dream", which has been played on cmt.com. Rachel says she knows the transition to country isn't going to be easy, but with her Broadway fans behind her and country fans starting to notice her pop country voice, Rachel Potter is certainly one country fans should be watching.
