                                Heather White

Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, in 1977, Heather has lived only briefly in Minden. However, she is the daughter of Nola and Tommy White, formerly of Minden, and the granddaughter of Marion and James White and Virginia McEachern all currently of Minden and the late Wesley C. McEachern.

Heather began singing at a very early age. Like many other country music singers, she started singing gospel songs in local churches and schools. At the age of 15, Heather was a regular on the local gospel television station in Santa Fe, NM, where she accompanied Australian Gospel Artist and Actor, David Michael Ashmore.

She was a member of a Gospel Quartet in Albuquerque, NM that included her mother, Nola, and singer Lou Baldwin, Marty Robbin’s brother-in-law. As Heather was beginning to become well known in New Mexico and West Texas, she and David Ashmore were privileged to open Gospel concerts for both TBN star, Vern Jackson and former member of Diana Ross’ Supremes, Cindy Birdsong.

Looking back to the early ages of 5 and 6, Heather would get a bottle of ketchup from the refrigerator and pretend it to be a microphone. She was constantly singing and learning newly released country songs. At one point, probably age 11, Heather seemed to know every song the Oak Ridge Boys and Alabama were singing. This probably was due to the fact that her parents were always playing these two groups’ songs.

Heather attended Paradise Christian Academy in Paradise Hills, NM. Her final year of high school was completed via correspondence. During Heather’s Senior year, she was a full-time entertainer in Branson, MO and completing her studies at night and weekends.

In 1994, Heather and her parents moved to Springfield, MO. Heather’s singing career started to expand when she began entertaining on Kenny Rogers’ Showboat Branson Belle. She continued to grow as a country artist and moved to Nashville, TN in June of 1999. While living in Nashville, Heather recorded demos for many great musicians and writers, one of which was David Frasier, a native of Minden, LA and graduate of Minden High School.

In August of 2000, Heather became the female vocalist for the famed Ozark Jubilee following in the footsteps of Brenda Lee, Red Foley, Porter Waggoner and other great country singers.

During the Fall of 2001, Heather and the Ozark Jubilee opened three shows for Porter Waggoner and two shows for Ray Price. The Ozark Jubilee performed over 100 shows in 40 states during the year 2002.

In February of 2004, Heather and the Ozark Jubilee performed four shows at the Riverside Casino in Laughlin, NV. This beautiful theatre has a seating capacity of 801. The Ozark Jubilee sold out the first 3 nights and had only 21 unsold seats for the final performance. The local promoters stated that this type sellout was historic for a new act. Needless to say, Heather and the other members of the Ozark Jubilee were very happy and have been booked again for 2005.

Recently the Ozark Jubilee was able to obtain a wonderful Silver Eagle tour bus that was originally owned by George Jones and later used by the Country duo, Brooks & Dunn. This bus has made touring a real pleasure for the entire group.

Many of the songs that Heather performs are oldies’ by Patsy Cline, Jeanne Sealy and Tammy Wynette.

While visiting the City of Minden in 1995, Heather was honored with a Key to the City by Mayor Bill Robertson. The Honorable Mayor Robertson, gave Heather and her dad a tour of the city offices and introduced her to various departmental employees. Heather cherishes such memories.

The life and times of an entertainer is very busy and goes in many directions. Only time will reveal what comes next for Heather.

During the summer months, the “Ozark Jubilee with Heather White” perform weekly at the “Truman Lake Opry” in Tightwad, MO.

Heather received this press coverage in last Friday's edition of McAllen,
Texas' newspaper, The Monitor.  She brought the house down...her version
of "Coal Miner's daughter", "Crazy" and "Stand by your Man" were big favorites.

SPRINGHILL — Coming next year, direct from Branson, is the Ozark Jubilee.

The variety show will be on stage at Piney Woods Palace on Friday, Feb. 24, 2006 beginning at 7 p.m.

Hailed as one of the best shows of its kind, the Jubilee features Branson’s funniest comedian and world-class fiddler, Doofus Doolittle. Doolittle will have the audience rolling in the aisle with his unique style of “Hillbilly Humor.” His fiddle music is considered some of the best found anywhere and will include such favorites as “Black Mountain Rag,” “Ragtime Annie” and “Orange Blossom Special.”

Doolittle, alias Randy Newman, has established himself as a world-class violinist, not only in Branson, but across the United States. He has performed with such entertainers as Ronnie Milsap, Jimmie Rogers, Johnny Rodriquez, Mel Tillis and more.

After doing several shows with Porter Wagoner, Wagoner invited Doolittle to be a special guest of his on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. After receiving an overwhelming response, Doolittle was brought back on stage to close that portion of the Opry with a fiddle tune.

Newman goes from his hillbilly attire of Doolittle in the first half of his show to custom-tailored suit by Manuel of Nashville in the second half. Manuel designs suits for all major Nashville acts, such as Tim McGraw, Porter Wagoner, Roy Clark, Alan Jackson and more.

The vocalists for the Jubilee are as good as any that come out of Branson or Nashville, Heather White, the female vocalist, usually steals the hearts of her audience with her renditions of songs from Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn and others. She is considered to be among the top up and coming female vocalists in the country.

The Ozark Jubilee band is a talented group of musicians under the direction of Jory Clayton who plays piano, keyboards and synthesizer. He also arranges music and is a talented musician and musical director.

Whether you like country, bluegrass or gospel music or just want a good laugh, you’ll want to catch this show of the Ozark Jubilee, which promises something for everyone.

Tickets for the event are on sale at Springhill City Hall and are $25 for reserved seats and $20 for general admission.

Following closely on the heels of this event, will be an appearance by Roy Clark on March 12, 2006. Negotiations are complete and have been approved by the entertainment committee for this show. The contract is expected to be signed in the next few days.
