Many people will recognize Gwen Sebastian from the reality show The Voice. She will perform at the 2012 Nodaway County Fair on Saturday, July 21, at 8:30 p.m. on the Main Stage.
Many voices contributed to Gwen Sebastians sudden and long-sought career growth, but which played the biggest part? Certainly her run on NBCs hit singing competition The Voice was a huge boost. The sound of her coach and country superstar Blake Shelton offering a spot on his tour was equally sweet. One came in the form of a relatives phone call, suggesting she attend an audition. Theres also the inner voice that brought her through a career cross-roads before the show was even a consideration. Most recently, theres
the one that led her to a powerfully uplifting new single called Met Him In A Motel Room.
Underpinning each of those voices, however, is the unique vocal instru-ment belonging to Gwen Sebastian. It was that rich and emotionally taut sound that persuaded Shelton, sight-unseen, to fall in love with a little-known but already hard-at-work small town singer. And it was that voice that pushed and at times pulled Sebastian from other oppor-tunities and paths toward a career as a performer.
I have always known, no matter what I was doing in my life, that I would be doing music, Gwen says. The question, then, was simply to what degree. I was at a crossroads, she explains of a moment prior to trying out for The Voice. After performing more than 1,000 shows and earning a living, if not national
acclaim, Sebastian found herself considering a reordering of priori-ties.
The Hebron, North Dakota native had been in a similar situation be-fore, choosing to drop out of nurs-ing school and go all-in for music. That decision led to a record deal and her 2009 single Hard Rain, which was well-received by country radio and fans. She released her EP V.I.P. in 2010, and earned her place in the country music business with tireless touring. Her love of the road eventually blossomed to love on the road, as Sebastian and her drummer Louis Newman became an item. Hence, the crossroads.
Continuing on the path of play-ing five shows a week was getting difficult, Sebastian admits. Her successes to that point had all been hard-fought and continued to require relentless dedication. The decision about whether or not to start a family was there, she says. Partners professionally as well as personally Newman is also Se-bastians producer the two made a fateful choice. Lets try this for another year or two and see where it takes us, Gwen says. And thats when everything turned.Just as her initial leap into the music business was validated by her early achievements, the decisive call to continue offered further assurance. The Voice came so quickly, she says. I watched the show last year and loved it, but never thought much about it until my cousin called to tell me about the tryouts. I couldnt make the Nashville audi-tion, so I went out to LA. There was

Sebastian headlines Fair entertainment
a long process from there.That process culminated in her
national television debut, being chosen to join Team Blake and, eventually, a spot on Sheltons tour. Along the way, her notoriety has exploded. The platform has been amazing, Gwen says. After the blind audition my Twitter follow-ers grew immensely, and Blake has given me so many opportunities on the road. This has propelled my career so much faster than I would have imagined.
Unlike so many television-bred aspirants, Sebastian doesnt have to figure out the music business ropes. Shes already a successful road war-rior in her own right. And the final piece in the puzzle is new music that can connect the dots for her new
national following. The song is Met Him In A Motel Room.
I knew I wanted to cut a song that had a story to it and meant something, she says. When I heard the first few lines, I thought I knew what this song was about, but then theres a surprise in the chorus. I love those unexpected twists even in the televisions shows I watch, thats what Im drawn to. In the end, its really a song about hope, and Im all about that.
Touring with Shelton, perform-ing her own dates and visiting radio stations in support of Motel Room, Sebastian has a busy year in front of her. And thats exactly what she signed up for. Having it all click doesnt have to happen when youre 17, she says. And if it had, I
wouldnt have been ready for it all. I realized that if I didnt try every-thing and really go for it, I might regret it. My time for this to happen is now and Im embracing it. You dont have to stop dreaming.
Thankfully, for her and her new-
found fans, she listened to the voice that urged the dream forward. In so doing, she empowered the one that Shelton says has the rare ability to combine power with passion. For Gwen Sebastian, its always been about the voice.
