Anna LaPrad was born and raised in Rock Hill, South Carolina. From a young age Anna has had a deep passion for music. “Music has always been the voice of my emotions, it’s how I cope with any problems that life throws at me,” says Anna. At the age of ten Anna started singing in church and began taking piano lessons. At 19, Anna bought her very first guitar and soon after started singing competitively in and around Rock Hill. After winning several competitions in her home state, it started to become very clear that Anna had a gift that was very capable of taking her somewhere.
After high school graduation, Anna made the decision to go to college to study psychology with big dreams in the back of her mind. While attending college Anna took classes to further her education in piano while minoring in music and found time to take guitar lessons on the side.
After graduating from Winthrop University, Anna moved to Nashville to follow her dream of becoming a country singer, and immediately found work singing in Music City’s legendary honky tonks. Through playing the Nashville area, Anna has already managed to build a large fan base, having people come back to watch her perform every day of their vacation.
In 2011, Anna returned to her home state of South Carolina to play a concert with fellow Nashville-based country singers Randy Houser and Justin Moore. She received great response not only from the fans lined up at her merchandise booth after her performance, but also from Randy Houser, whose set followed hers. “He shook my hand and told me that I was ‘No opening act.’ That meant a lot to me,” Anna reflects.
In early 2014, Anna experienced one of her biggest accomplishments as a songwriter when a song she cowrote was featured in the movie, “Category 5,” starring Burt Reynolds. The song, called “Till it Breaks My Heart,” is featured prominently in the movie and also made waves nationally on the Americana music charts.
Anna has recently taken a big step in her career by hiring a manager, and is currently in the studio working on her second album, set for release near the beginning of 2015. She’s also playing on the road every chance she gets and is quickly growing her following all over the United States. “Who knows what will happen, I just pray about everything! I know that I was born to perform and everyday I count my blessings. I don’t know what God has in store for me, but I do know that He has blessed me with such a wonderful gift and it is my job to use it as He intended. I’m definitely learning what it means to pay your dues and I wouldn’t trade one single second of it for anything else in the world. Being able to wake up and do what I love doing is an amazing feeling. I can honestly say that I’m loving my life right now and where ever it may lead, I’m just here enjoying the ride.” – Anna LaPrad
