Natalie immersed herself in music as a child, and upon finishing high school
had begun attending the prestigious Berklee School of Music. After making her professional singing debut at the age 3, the
young Natalie devoted herself to forging a musical career, and by her mid teens she was proficient on both piano and acoustic
guitar. Singing, however, was her first love, and indeed it was her vocal skills that earned her a scholarship to Berklee.
In 1995, Emily and Martie successfully recruited Natalie to become lead vocalist for the Dixie Chicks.
