It’s one of the biggest things missing in country music these days. The country part!” She’s opened for big name country acts such as Gary Allen, Radio Romance, Jordan Davis, and the Rhodes Show. Through these experiences she’s learning more and more each day about the demand this industry can have, but if anyone is up for the challenge it’s Amber.

When asked why she moved from Nashville to pursue her music in Memphis she says “for one I feel more creative here, these are MY people and two, well who’s the King of Memphis Blues? B.B. King. Who’s the king of Memphis Rock n’ Roll? Elvis Presley. Now who’s the queen of Memphis country? …Amber Rae Dunn!” and that’s exactly who she plans to be!
