NEW TRICK PONY SINGER IN THE SADDLE

Trick Pony’s remaining members, Keith Burns and Ira Dean, have selected a new lead singer to replace the departed Heidi Newfield, 19-year-old Aubrey Collins.

Aubrey is described as “a rock chick who loves country,” and she has begun rehearsals with Ira and Keith. Keith jokingly points out that, “She has a hard time dealing with the fact that Ira is 12.” Heidi left the band late last year to pursue solo opportunities, and played her last shows with her Trick Pony bandmates in December at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon. You’ll learn more about Aubrey and the band’s plans for 2007 in an upcoming issue of Country Weekly.
