ABOUT THE ARTIST
Don’t call Juni Fisher a cowgirl. What she is, is a horseman. Training horses paid the bills. She played music with her sisters as a child, formed a bluegrass band as a teen, then fronted a dance orchestra and sang Big Band standards while captaining her winning college horse show team. As an assistant cow horse trainer, then a cutting horse trainer’s assistant near Santa Barbara, she played in country bands on weekends. In 1990, she moved to Tennessee to foxhunt professionally, ride point-to-point races, gallop steeplechase horses, and hone her songwriting chops among the Nashville crowd. Nowadays, Fisher is a multi-award-winning singer, songwriter, and entertainer who finds peace and connection training and showing her cutting horse, Reydio Airplay.
