The only country music artist in my personal CD collection is Garth Brooks, but after listening to Tracy Millar’s sophomore album “I’m Not That Girl Anymore”, that may just have to change.

Tracy first arrived on the country music scene as a CCMA showcase artist in 2003. A registered nurse by profession, she quit her permanent nursing position to pursue a fulltime music career.

Throughout her career she has been invited to perform at major Canadian events such as Big Valley Jamboree, Telus Country Fever, Global Country All-Star Concert, Edmonton Grand Prix, The Magnificent River Rats Festival, Alberta Salute to Country Music (Juno’s 2008), Edmonton’s Klondike Days and has shared the stage with Duane Steele, Prairie Oyster, Brad Johner, Shane Yellowbird and many others.

Born in Hines Creek, Alberta, musical influences such as Charley Pride and Ricky Skaggs helped develop her love for traditional country music and she is proud she has always been able to stick to her roots, best describing this album as traditional country with a twist of bluegrass.

The witty lyrics and upbeat tempo of “The ‘L’ Word” and title track “I’m Not that Girl Anymore” as well as the slow, soft melodies of “My Heart” and “I Will Not Be Broken”, showcase her diverse abilities and sincerity, while making it obvious to fans and industry personnel that she’s a true country gal at heart.

She has been referred to as one of Alberta’s best talents and after listening to this album, it’s not difficult to see why.
