Since she was a little girl, Tawna Goforth knew exactly what she wanted to be, a Country & (Mid)Western singer. One of her favorite songs as a child was "Boot Scootin' Boogie," and she did just that when she sang it at the age of 3. You could find her performing throughout her childhood and teenage years at local Kansas festivals, school musicals, and singing the National Anthem at various community events. Little did she know, this was only preparing her for what would be yet to come later in life. At the age of 19, she helped form local Kansas band, "Turnback Creek." For the next 4 years, her goals, dreams, and weekends would be full of performing on stages across Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. She was thrilled to have played some big shows at the Pretty Prairie Rodeo, Kansas State Fair, and even performing as the opening act at the Cotillion in Wichita, KS for country superstars Justin Moore and Thompson Square. Her personal life was also thriving as she married her high school sweetheart Chad Goforth and decided to take some time off from the band to be newlyweds. But the story doesn't end here...
Tawna and Chad decided it was time to take a whack at this crazy dream, fixed up their house in Wichita, KS and put it on the market to sell. It was 2014 and time to finally fulfill the dream they had to move to Nashville, TN. "We decided the easiest transition would be to borrow Chad's parents big fifth-wheel camper and live in that while we settled in." So, they parked the camper at the KOA on Music Valley drive and would live there for the next 5 months. Since then, they've purchased a home and even appeared in their own episode on the HGTV show House Hunters documenting their journey in Music City.
Tawna is a full time singer-songwriter building her brand in Nashville. She has been featured in many tv shows and music videos filmed in Nashville by artists such as, Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, and Lady A. Most recently, she has released her first single as an independent artist titled "Pieces." It is the personal journey of witnessing her late grandfather’s (Raleigh Lackey) struggle with memory loss and the fear of him possibly forgetting her.
"I couldn't be more excited to finally release my own music and continue this journey to a dream. More new music coming this year!"
