S:As a college student, away from home. I discovered Classic Country, like Hank Williams, and loved it. That was my introduction, which lead then to Cowboy Junkies, Alison Krauss, and on and on....
2) Your principal influences?
S:Emmylou Harris is a big one. Dolly Parton. Wynona, and The Judds has been a huge inspiration for me too. Alison Krauss. She's a huge inspiration. And the list goes on.....
3) About that situation you think that the country is a present?
S:To me country (at least "mainstream country" ) seems to have become pop. I don't know where country went. Every now and then on an Americana channel you'll hear something with real country roots, but most of it is basically rock and roll with a twang. Or were you talking about the USA?
4) You prefere rock or sound or country music???
S:I just like good music. I like a lot of different genres.
5) Do you know something of the Spanic country/rock?
S:No - I really don't know what the music scene is like in Spain. But I'd like to! Tour, anyone?
6) Me mention 10 cds that you believe that they are indispensable in a music library that boasts of having good music?
S:Well, I can't be the arbiter of what everyone might call "good music" but I do love Patty Griffin: my current favorite is "1000 kisses". Mary Chapin Carpenter's early albums..."State of the Heart". Ella Fitzgerald. Louis Armstrong. "Take 5". The Judds - "Greatest Hits". J.S. Bach's Partitas and Sonatas for Solo Violin. New Grass Revival's Greatest Hits. So many more.....
7) That you have next projects?
S:We are recording our second CD. It will be ready for sale at www.stephaniebettman.com early 2010. It'd going to be great!
