"Dreams do come true"
Sherrill can never remember a time in her life when she was not singing and performing. Her ability to sing is a God-given talent, so she never needed any voice lessons. At age 6, Sherrill was singing at her local church as a solo-vocalist and also as part of the church choir. In middle school she performed in school musicals. The love of performing came at an early age, and came to stay.
Since her parents listened to country music, Sherrill naturally was into rock'n'roll. Sherrill's father had a great love of Patsy Cline's music and insisted she practice until she could sing just like her. In order to please her father, at age 10, Sherrill became a young Patsy Cline impersonator. Sherrill performed Patsy's music for her father and his friends on many occasions.
At age 12, Sherrill started to get serious about her music and bought her first guitar with paper route money. Shortly afterwards, she formed her first band with fellow neighborhood musician hopefuls.
As an adult, Sherrill succumbed to her musical passions and chose music as a career. She has performed professionally for every type of event with numerous bands and as a solo artist.
Sherrill currently performs her originals with country currents and classics and even some rock'n'roll. She performs with her band or as a solo artist with background tracks. As a specialty, she performs the "Tribute to Patsy Cline Show", where she opens as herself performing various material, and then will change into costume and come out as Patsy. She is so transformed that many in the audience don't realize she is the same person. No matter which way she performs, her act is always top-of-the-line.
Some of her credits include: Performances in the "Cavalcade of Stars" and "Thunderbolt All-stars", Billy Bob's, the State Fair of Texas and Southfork Ranch (where the television show "Dallas" was filmed); and opening act for Art Greenshaw's Lightcrust Doughboys. She has also been featured on "Good Morning Texas", a Dallas television show.
She has performed for other venues as: The Mansion on Turtle Creek (5-star restaurant/hotel), the Old Dominion Opry in Williamsburg, VA, and for private and corporate events in Las Vegas and New York. She has performed many times for large corporate clients such as GTE, and for national and international conferences, such as the show she recently performed at the Loes Anatole Hotel ballroom, to an audience of over 5,000.
In 1999 Sherrill released her first original CD, a project that was two years in the making. Sherrill is also a songwriter, having written the title cut, "I want you to know". After only two weeks of airplay in Europe, she was at #8 on the "Hot 99 Independent List"! Now (2005) there is also a CD which contains songs from her tributes to Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton and Stevie Nicks. This CD will be added to this page, including sound samples, in the near future.

that I received as a gift from Sherrill and her manager, Sandy Clark.
In fact, I received a complete press kit, also including a seven minute
video tape, showing Sherrill performing as Patsy, pictures, and an
autographed poster! Thanks, Sherrill and Sandy! I am overwhelmed,
and I love you both! By the way, Sherrill is fantastic as Patsy!
