June 25, 2007 Nearly six months after leaving Trick Pony, Heidi Newfield will begin recording her debut solo album for Asylum/Curb Records tomorrow. The Tennessean reports that Heidi has put together a new team to guide her career, including producer Tony Brown, John Grady and Greg Hill of Red Light Management-Nashville and label chief Mike Curb.
"I don't think I could have searched the world and found any better than John Grady, Greg Hill and Tony Brown," Heidi says, adding that she's happy to continue her relationship with Mike that began when she was with Trick Pony.
Heidi has spent the past six months writing nearly every day. "I've never been more excited," she says. "The material that is coming out of it, since leaving the group, has been ridiculous. There's lots to say, and I'm writing with some amazing songwriters. I'm ready to stop talking and start singing."
Heidi is scheduled to go into the studio with Tony tomorrow after playing in the Bass Pro Shops Charity Golf event benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at the Gaylord Springs Golf Links today.
