Performing in public since age 7, Phoebe’s unique yodeling skills and vocal gymnastics have landed her various TV and media appearances, including Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour and The Best of America by Horseback. In addition to performing with Riders in the Sky, she has shared the stage with members of Chicago, the Doobie Brothers, New Grass Revival, The Farmhands, and Suzy Bogguss. A dream come true, Phoebe performed on the Grand Ole Opry with Riders in the Sky in August 2023. One of her goals is to make history as the first black female Opry member performing Western music. Phoebe plans to continue sharing the love of Jesus and the beauty of traditional Western Music with multiple generations, races, & ethnicities across the globe for many years to come. Phoebe proudly represents her home state of Kentucky, The Horse Capital of the World, the Birthplace of Bluegrass, & home to the Country Music Highway, where she enjoys spending time with her 6 brothers and sisters on her 33 acre farm along with her miniature horses, donkey, cats, and lovable Labrador. From the front porch of her farmhouse, Phoebe says “Yodeling is such a beautiful thing. I would love to sing cowboy music for the rest of my life.”
