“Aubrey also performed for (Charlotte radio station) 107.9 the Link’s voice contest in Charlotte, as well as at Festival in the Park, also in Charlotte, the Lincoln County Apple Festival and a few local coffee shops,” Mrs. Hedgepeth continued. “At age 12, Aubrey released her first single as an independent artist and singer-songwriter, ‘Saying Nothing at All,’ written by Aubrey and her great-grandmother, Janice Dellinger. The Sound Factory Studios in Lincolnton mixed and mastered this project.”
She added that upon the release of “Saying Nothing at All” came two Josie Music Award nominations for Song of the Year in the modern/contemporary country and Junior Artist of the Year categories, both in 2018. Miss Hedgepeth has had local radio station interviews with L-Town Radio of Lincolnton. She has been featured in both The Gaston Gazette and in this publication, The Herald.
“Saying Nothing at All” has enjoyed airplay on independent radio stations in the Carolinas, Texas, Louisiana and Florida and even as far away as the Netherlands. It is available on all music platforms, including iHeartRadio, iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Reverbnation, the Website at www.thestage.com and You-Tube. Future bookings will be posted to her Facebook page under “events.”

She has sung “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Fight for It Company MMA Fighting in Hickory, and she kicked off a wrestling match for USA Main Event Wrestling.

“Aubrey has enjoyed a lot of accomplishments just over the last two years of her journey,” her mom said. “This may be only her second song, but she’s making big waves in her small town. We are so very proud of her!”

“I hope I encourage people to follow their dreams,” she said, “and never give up!”
