LINDSEY CARDINALE BAND
FOLLOW EVERY STEP
One of American Idol's most talented, classy finalists, there is no doubt that Lindsey walked away a solid winner back in 2005. At every step along the way, the young singer impressed judges and millions of fans with her perfect poise, unwavering professionalism and the kind of pure-country voice that gets to the emotional core of a song to reveal every drop of emotion therein.
Cardinale grew up just north of New Orleans in the small town of Ponchatoula with her older sister and two loving, but not particularly musical, parents. According to the singer, that talent skipped a generation and descended from her gifted grandmother. (Lindsey laughs)
She still has her Singalodeon that she received as a Christmas gift at the age of just 4 years old. “It's just a little bitty thing but it has gotten me a long way,” Cardinale states. “When you're little you think you can do anything, and I thought I was Dolly Parton. I began singing harmony before I knew the true meaning or really even knew what I was doing… I am just glad I never stopped.”
Along with singing all the time, she grew up working as a waitress/singer at a Gospel Music Restaurant, The Country Village, where she sang with the house band and is now on the roster of Music Row’s Silvercreek Records.
Cardinale has won over millions of fans and made some lifelong friends over the course of her amazing creative journey of the past few years. One of those friends, country star Carrie Underwood, went on to win that 'Idol' competition back in 2005, and the two small-town southern girls have remained close as their respective careers have developed.
"It's really unbelievable, because this is something I've wanted since I was a little girl," she says. I never imagined getting the opportunities that I come face-to-face with now.” This beauty is country to the core and you will not attend a show without hearing her blow you away with at least one Merle Haggard tune. She launched her very own Publishing Company this year and has made an exceptional young woman of herself; gaining much respect from many musicians with her amazing songs, lyrics, and unforgettable vocals.
"My 'American Idol' experience has absolutely made me stronger and truly admire this industry," Cardinale says. "I knew something great was going to come out of it, and now, nearly 10 years later, I'm writing songs, traveling with my wonderful band and have the best label." Lindsey Cardinale will begin touring in early February 2015. "Thank you to SO many that have been on this incredible journey with me thus far... your support means more than you'll ever know."
