Live Show: Lisa Brokop: Legendary Ladies of Country

August 13, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

As a follow-up to her hit show Lisa Brokop: The Patsy Cline Project, Lisa has developed a new concert experience that country music fans will NOT want to miss!

 

Through hit songs and heartfelt stories, Lisa Brokop: Legendary Ladies of Country will celebrate several of the female pioneers in country music who inspired and influenced Lisa’s own career. Featuring hits from Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, Emmylou Harris and more. Lisa Brokop’s own favorites from her award-winning albums such as Better Off Broken, Wildflower, and Take That will also be included. This musical tour tips its hat to the talented women of country..

At the age of 19, Lisa landed the lead female role in the feature film Harmony Cats. The movie, in which Lisa plays a country singer who leaves home in search of a big break in Nashville, proved to be prophetic. Shortly after filming wrapped, and on the strength of her very first Nashville showcase, Lisa was signed to Capitol Records. Over the next three years, she released two critically acclaimed albums, the Canadian-certified Gold record Every Little Girls Dream and the self-titled Lisa Brokop, which garnered hits such as “Give Me a Ring Sometime,” “Take That,” “Before He Kissed Me,” and “She Can’t Save Him.” In 1995, the prestigious Academy of Country Music recognized Lisa with an award nomination for Top New Female Vocalist.

998, Lisa signed with Sony Nashville/Columbia Records and released When You Get To Be You featuring the hit singles “What’s Not To Love,” “How Do I Let Go” and the top-10 smash hit “Better Off Broken.”

Now comfortably established in her adopted home of Nashville, Tennessee, she took some time away from the rigors of the road and discovered a hidden wellspring of songwriting talent, which gave her renewed self-respect, strength and determination.  The result was Undeniable, a Canadian independent album that saw Lisa recognized with a series of Canadian Country Music Awards, including two nods for Independent Song of the Year for the hits “Something Undeniable” and “I’d Like to See You Try,” and three consecutive trophy wins for Independent Female Artist of the Year.

It was during this time that Lisa really began to get noticed for her songwriting abilities. All ten songs on Undeniable were co-written by Lisa and before long other stars were recording tracks she penned, including Reba McEntire, Terri Clark and Pam Tillis.

Brokop’s seventh album, Beautiful Tragedy was released in August 2008 on the independent Ellbea Records label and featured the top-20 hit “Break It”. Eleven of the album’s twelve tracks were co-written by Brokop and all tracks were produced by Brokop and her husband Paul Jefferson.  Lisa and Paul welcomed baby Ivy into their lives in August 2009.  The couple released a duo project The Jeffersons in 2011.

In 2013, Lisa returned to commercial country radio and had success with songs “Let It Burn” and “Love Me If  You Can” both of which were produced by fellow Canadian superstar Carolyn Dawn Johnson.

 

Ready to begin a yet another new chapter, Brokop is in the process of putting together the new musical venture, “Lisa Brokop: The Patsy Cline Project”. Lisa will be paying homage to one of country music’s greatest ladies with some of Cline’s classic hits like “Sweet Dreams” and “Walkin After Midnight” as well as some of her own material specifically written for the project.
