Danity Kane. If you only listen to country music than this is a name that wont mean a thing to you. If you listen to other types of music then you may know Danity Kane as the all-girl group formed on MTV's Making The Band 4 helmed by rapper P. Diddy or Sean Combs or Puff Daddy or Sugar Bubble or whatever he's going by these days.
Well the group went their separate ways not too long ago and now are doing their own projects. In a move that's become common place among people who can't make it in their own genre of music, one of the members has decided to give country a whirl.
Shannon Bex has decided that country is her passion and the way her career should go. And her inspiration? Why Garth Brooks of course.
"He's such an honest performer," she told The Tennessean. "I went to his concert for the first time ever, and I was in the 300 level, but it felt like he was performing right to me."
Shannon's been spending time in Nashville working on her debut solo studio album. "I'm just working on kind of finding my solo sound," she said. "I have been with a group for an amazing five years, and you know, it kind of happens, things move on. I want to do it right, though. I'm not jumping into anything."
Okay, I get tired of hearing all these people "going" country, but I'll give Shannon a bit of slack considering her name ROCKS!!!
No word on when we can expect a new single or album.
Not country, but here's Shannon performing on Fame.
