More Sunday New Music - Riley Weston - If I Said Howdy To You (Live Acoustic Performance)

Following up the new music from Chris Janson earlier today, here's another country newcomer named Riley Weston. While Riley's new to country music, she's by no means new to the entertainment industry. According to her bio on Wikipedia:
"Weston became embroiled in a debate about ageism in Hollywood after it was discovered that she lied about her age to get work in the entertainment industry.

Weston had bit film and television roles as a young girl, including the 1980s sitcoms Growing Pains and Who's the Boss?. In May 1997, she began claiming her date of birth as 1979 in order to be considered for acting roles.[1] The deception was assisted by her small size, with a height of 4' 11" and weight of 93 pounds.

In 1998, she began drafting screenplays and marketing herself to television studios as a recent high school graduate. She was soon hired by the WB Network as a writer for the show Felicity after they saw one of her scripts about teenage sisters. Hailed as a child prodigy and "wunderkind," she was featured on Entertainment Weekly's October 1998 list of the "100 Most Creative People in Entertainment," which described her as an up-and-coming 19-year-old. Shortly thereafter, she was offered a half-million dollar screenwriting deal with Disney."

If I Said Howdy To You is her first country single, and it's just now hitting the airwaves. If you like it, call up your local radio station and request it. The video below is from a recent live performance at the Celebrity Center in Hollywood. Enjoy!
