DINA ANDREWS is also known as “The Pink Cowgirl”. She was given this name through the hourly slot she presents each week for Joe Singleton on Red Rose Country Radio.
Dina lives on Jersey in the Channel Islands and has been seriously songwriting for around 8 years and playing guitar since she was 10 years old.
“Let The Desert Wind Blow” was recorded in Nashville last April at the Southern Ground Recording Studios in Nashville. This is home to The Zac Brown Band. This song also won her a Nashville Directors award through Paramount Song.
Dina had the privilege of a guest drummer on the song, the fantastic John Gardener, who drummed for The Dixie Chicks, so she feels very privileged to have the services of such an accomplished and revered musician.
The song was inspired by a friend of Dina’s, Tony Paul, who plays lots of blues and a drunk who regularly shouts insults at some of the open mic singers, She thought someone who props up a bar stool all day must have a story and that is how the song came about.
“Complicated” is the third song released from the album of the same name.The subject of the song is self explanatory, but the person it is about made a huge footprint on Dina’s heart, which is why she decided to name the album after the song.It took her a year to be able to perform the song without crying.
The front cover of the album features a beautiful horse called Donald.He has since unfortunately crossed the rainbow bridge, but his owner gave Dina permission to use the photo in dedication to him.
“Tombstone Tarnia” was the first single released from the album and all proceeds from this song go to the Jersey Brain Tumour Charity.This song came from a challenge by another songwriter at C2C in 2017 and, as her dad was a gravedigger, Dina thought it was a great topic for her.The lady in the song is based on someone she came across during a stint as a barmaid decades ago. There is a video to go with this song and Dina and her cousin had great fun putting this video together!
