Julia Cole: Country Music Rising Star

50m | Sep 8, 2023

After growing up in the musically diverse area of Houston, Julia found her taste in music to be a unique mix of authentic country and Houston rhythm and attitude. 

Her own music performances began with filling in to sing the national anthem before her volleyball games in high school. After a shot-in-the-dark submission to sing the national anthem before a professional football game, she knew she had a talent destined for a bigger audience. 

Fast forward a few years, and Julia has amassed over 200 million streams, is a CMT Next Women of Country, and played in The Grand Ole Opry, fulfilling her grandfather’s dream. 

We catch up with Julia today to hear about the experience so far and how she stays the course in her rising fame, without compromise.
