Exciting News: Amanda has joined Murray Town Entertainment & Hwy One Records! New music and shows coming soon!

 

Singer, songwriter, and actress is bringing southern rock n’ soul to the world!

Amanda Page Cornett instantly found a passion for singing, writing, and performing before the age of 9. Born in Spartanburg, South Carolina, a mid-size city responsible for musicians, such as The Marshall Tucker Band and Pinky Anderson, she performed with many church, school, and community groups throughout her youth.  After playing her first original song at the age of 13, Cornett knew that she had found her calling.

 

Upon graduating from the University of Florida (Go Gators), Cornett relocated to Nashville, TN. By continually refining her skills as an entertainer, vocalist, and songwriter, Cornett developed her unique “southern rock ‘n’ soul” sound, combining country, rock, blues, and soul.  

Featured in the 2009 movie, "Junkyard Dog,” Cornett also has acted in various films, music videos, and commercials.  In addition to working with Kirsti Manna’s Songwriter Girl Camp, Cornett has also written with many hit writers, including Mark Narmore, Spooner Oldham, Rich Fagan, Will Rambeaux, Greg Lawson (pop), and Kirsti Manna.

Cornett can be found volunteering with various organizations, such as Salkehatchie Summer Service, and participating in fundraisers for conditions such as Cystic Fibrosis and ALS.  Her band, Almost Angels, features the sibling trio Sherry Peterson-Tenille, Shawn Peterson, and Randall Scott Peterson. Together, they have had the honor of playing with special guest musicians, including bassist Tim Lawter ( Marshall Tucker Band) as well as Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame drummer Artimus Pyle (Lynryd Skynryd).

Released in 2018, Cornett’s album Front Porch Rebel was recorded at NuttHouse Studio in Sheffield, AL and features songs written at Muscle Shoals’ famous Fame Studios (Aretha Franklin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, Etta James).  

Amanda has released, with great acclaim, numerous singles, including "Carolina Coast", "Throw A Lil Gas", "Six String Showdown", and "Soldier's Girl".

Amanda and Almost Angels were so excited to be named The Missisippi Music Awards 2023 Southrn Rock Band of the Year!  Amanda was also nominated as Female Vocalist of the Year for the 2024 Carolina Coutnry Music Awards!
