There aren’t many Latino artists in country music… But that could all change with the arrival of Caitlin Gutiérrez.
The Latweena country singer who hails from Georgia is a rising star in the world of country music. And, she’s garnering support from big name artists in the industry like The Band Perry.
“I’m not just a normal 14-year-old, I’m a 14-year-old who knows what she wants to do in her career and will do anything for it,” says Gutiérrez, who started singing at the age of 6.
Caitlin is currently working with famed voice coach Jan Smith, who has helped train Usher and Justin Bieber’s vocal pipes. And, she seems destined for stardom. After all, she hails from a small Georgia town that’s big on talent –Leesburg. It just happens to be the home of recent American Idol winner Phillip Phillips.
“I mean there’s something in the water in Leesburg going on because there’s a lot of talent in Leesburg,” exclaims Gutiérrez. “But his success is just a blessing and I know that he is so proud of himself and everyone here is proud of him.”
But Gutiérrez is determined to make her own mark in the world… She’s already wowing audiences all over the country; and she’s even released her first music video for the catchy single “Country Air.” But that’s not all… She recently opened for The Band Perry and there’s talk of a sitcom and a possible reality show.
No matter Gutiérrez’s next path, she’s got a great head on her shoulders and a strong team behind her. Her mother serves as her hair and makeup artist while her dad also helps out. And, there’s also her manager and her sister who helps her stay on pitch.
“They’ve been helping me through everything. They’ve been supporting me, they’ve been driving me places. They’re just amazing and it’s a real blessing to have them in my life,” says Gutiérrez.
Gutiérrez, who also enjoys acting and modeling, says she loves singing the most and hopes to one day sell out Madison Square Garden.
