Natalie Stovall, a country rock singer and fiddle player will perform at 8:30 p.m. on Monday in the Washburn Room of Memorial Union. It is sponsored by the Campus Activities Board.

Stovall’s music is a blend of traditional country with high energy, soulful, and rock music.

“She’s unique,” said Billie Jean Bergmann, executive director of CAB. “We try to mix up the talent we bring here to Washburn.”

As a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Stovall has been performing most of her life. Beginning with the Opryland Kid’s Club, she has appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and performed “God Bless America” for President George W. Bush at the 93rd Annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

“She’s a very dynamic individual,” said Brian Haug, live music director for CAB. “We thought it would be a great concert that Washburn students would enjoy.”

Concert attendees can look forward to hearing Stovall’s hit “If I Run To You Now,” and her cover of the Charlie Daniels Band’s “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” said Haug.

The day of the performance, Stovall will appear on the 94.5 Country morning show with Jim Daniels at 8. She will also appear on WIBW, “13 News at 4” with Ralph Hipp at 4 p.m.
