Risa Binder is one of the new generation of country music stars who just loves getting out and meeting her fans (she even plies them with sweets during her shows) and just getting on with the business of making great music, which is the thing she loves most.
As well as having a sweet tooth, it appears her music is sweet on the ears of the fans, as her debut entry in the national Top 40 country charts last weekend testifies. In at #39 in week two of her release, “Gotta Have You,” written by the song writing team of Barton, Shackleton and Banks and produced by Luke Wooten (Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Kellie Pickler) could be destined for great things, according to industry insiders.
It’s a powerful and catchy number that seems to be going down well with listeners across the country, if the DJ and audience feedback on the SiriusXM The Highway Facebook page is any guide.
Referring to Risa Binder recently, Jessica Wade of SiriusXM Radio said, “Beautiful steel, beautiful piano, beautiful tune, beautiful VOICE,” and she should know — Jessica is one of the DJs and hosts of SiriusXM The Highway, arguably one of the most influential country music radio stations in the US today.
And it’s not just Jessica at SiriusXM who’s a fan either. No lesser luminary than Mike Wolfe (of American Picker fame and cable TV star) said recently, “It’s a killer song — Baby Charlie even loves it.”
OK, maybe he could perhaps be forgiven for a little bias as the video was filmed largely on location at his store Antique Archaeology in Nashville — where else?
As the media plaudits grow and the airplay increases, it would appear that for Risa Binder, her star might well be in the ascendency.
