Exclusive Interview with Marthia Sides

Marthia Sides Why country music ?
~ First it's in my blood. Second there is nothing like Country Music for the stories, emotions and the real life drama. No other genre has that.

If everything would be possible (waking the dead included) , which two people should sing the ultimate country duet?
~ Not sure what two people should sing a duet but I would love to sing with Don Henley. That would be my ultimate. I love the eagles. One of my all time favorite bands.

What song you ever recorded means the most to you and why?
~ "I Got Faith" because it's my life and my friend Jessica's life combined and we wrote it together.


Who would you like to write a song for you?
~ An Eagle, probably Don Henley.

Whisky wine beer or water?
~ Wine for sure. Very dry and RED. But I also drink Vodka on the rocks!

What is the question interviewers never asked you while you were always hoping they would. (and give us your answer)?
~ Not really sure but I know the one I don't like that they always ask..."Who do you think you sound like".?
I find that insulting. I sound like Marthia Sides!

Describe the ultimate recording studio (not the technique but the facilities)
~ Ha! Clean, Pro Tools HD, comfortable Couch, great mics. Pretty easy going on that.

Johnny or June ?
~ June because she was a super strong woman and I believe I am as well.

Give us your top 3 country songs ever.
~ "Smokey Mountain Rain" Ronnie Milsap
"Desperado" Eagles
"Ring of Fire" Johnny Cash
