Today is Thursday, our favorite day here at the Catch of the Day, because we get to present another of Nashville's great unsigned or indy label artists that you may not know of. Today an artist who is known as the Garden City Cowgirl, bringing country music from the home of Eddie Rabbitt and Clint Black.

Nikki Briar brings a New Jersey sass to country music unlike any other. While performing over 220 shows a year, Nikki has been nominated for several awards, honoring her as both a songwriter and a performer. She has opened for acts that range from Chase Bryant to Billy Currington and from LoCash to Tim McGraw. She has performed not only in Nashville on a regular basis, but tours the east coast and was a featured artist at the Taste of Country Music Festival in Hunter, NY.

She has recently added another title to her resume: Mom. The mother of a 6 month old, she balances her lives touring, being a mom and an army wife, with only 24 hours in a day. She paid tribute to her military husband with the title of her album A Soldier's Princess. The album is an impressive mix of Garden State country and a rockin' good time, and Briar's vocals will make you turn it up.

We have the latest single from Briar in our spotlight today. Brought to you by All
