After a hot debut on "CMT Pure 12-Pack Countdown" and breaking the Top 20 on Music Row with Right Here, Right Now, Scarletta is ready to take the stage and spread the Scarletta fever in 2013.
The trio was the "Spotlight on the 615" artist of the week for the week of January 9th on Billboard.com and was honored to be chosen as a Billboard "615 Top 10 Artists to Watch" in 2013." They also received a very similar acknowledgement from CMA as the organization chose them as a CMA Close Up "Artist to Watch for 2013" and will be profiled in the February/March issue of CMA Closeup.
Scarletta found its roots in Nashville when the violin/vocal talents of Nathan Stoops and guitar slinging vocalist Benji Harris met in a recording session. When the fierce vocals of Aubrey Collins were added to the mix, it proved to be the perfect concoction for this rising trio.
