Kimberly Caldwell ~ Desperate Girls & Stupid Boys - Video

 "I've always got folks sending me their music or suggesting artists to check out.  Well... I was pleasantly surprised when Kimberly Caldwell's name came up in an email I received recently.  I read her bio, checked out her site and then saw the videos.  I was hooked.
For me...a product of the '70's, her looks are that of a young Debbie Harry, with a sound and energy all her own.  Her new single, "Desperate Girls & Stupid Boys" comes after the successful release earlier this year of her debut album "Without Regret".  Like I said, I'm hooked 
and I think you will be too!
Keep up with Kimberly on her  
Looking forward to hearing more from this lady!"  Jeff/TOR

"Here ya go... Kimberly Caldwell.  You may have heard her here first...on Texas Online Radio!"

Caldwell developed her fierce determination through a childhood that had its share of obstacles. Born in Katy, Texas, she describes herself as an attention-seeking kid who would climb on the coffee table, throw her hands in the air, and scream, “Look at me! I can do this!” “I’ve always wanted to be an entertainer,” she says. “I just wanted to perform for people.” That desire led to four years on the beauty pageant circuit, from ages 5 to age 9. “I loved the hair and makeup. I loved rehearsing,” she says. “My mom would have these extravagant outfits made, like red lamé with silver fringe and she would spray paint a silver cowboy hat and boots for me, the whole nine yards.”

A fan of country music and such artists as Reba McEntire, the Judds, and Randy Travis, Caldwell became obsessed with appearing on the television talent show Star Search, “the way people are with American Idol today,” she says. She wound up winning the competition five times, the most wins for a junior vocalist on the original version. At age 12, she landed a gig as a featured performer on a singing revue called “Country Tonite,” which meant a family move to Branson, MO, where the show was located. Caldwell sang country favorites six days a week, performing two shows a day, “doing full-on numbers where the dancers picked me up and I’m wearing a headset,” she recalls. Her mother told her she could stop anytime, but she loved performing and carried on for three years. Then at age 15, she decided she wanted to move back to Katy and “just be normal.” more here.
