Grammy-nominated Ruthie Foster's songs are a remarkable hybrid of blues, gospel, roots and folk music. Foster grew up in rural Texas singing in her church choir, served a tour of duty with the U.S. Navy Band, and ended up in New York City with a major-label development deal that unexpectedly went sour. After taking a break from her professional career and returning to Texas to care for her ailing mother, she began performing again and won Austin Music Awards for Best Folk Artist and Best Female Vocalist.
