Toni was born in Kentucky....
into a world filled with lots of Love, County Music and Stock Car Racing!
And, soon found her heart belonged on the sandy white beaches
of Estero Island and the Gulf of Mexico when her family moved to
"her adopted hometown" of Fort Myers Beach, Florida
when she was in the fourth grade attending The Beach Elementary School.
Toni started singing and playing guitar when she was only nine years old.
Had her own band, touring bus and started writing songs by the time she was
fourteen. She recorded her first record at the age of sixteen on her own "Tanglewood Records" Label ...and moved to Nashville, Tennessee
right out of High School, where she worked with some of the
Best Hit Songwriters in Country Music at Acuff-Rose Music Publishing Company. And, discovered her true talents and passion for the Music Business to be
"Behind the Scenes" in marketing and promotions,
producing, songwriting and the recording studio
even more than performing on stage.
Toni created and produced "FanAddict Female" in 2004, a special project targeted specifically for Female Race Fans, that included the "FanAddict Female Party!"
Music CD featuring songs written and recorded by Toni, as well as fun cover tunes
with special guests. Including a duet with Country Music Legend, Mel McDaniel
of a remake of his 1985 Song of The Year Hit "Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On"
with songwriter, Bob McDill's permission and blessings for Toni to rewrite the lyrics to "Junior's Got His Blue Jeans On" as a tribute to Dale Earnhardt, Jr and his NASCAR Sponsor "Wrangler Jeans". As well as, a tribute to famed Female INDY and NASCAR Race car driver, Danica Patrick with a song written and recorded
by Toni featuring her NASCAR sponsor "Little Go Daddy Girl" ...among other fun
racing themed party songs. The FanAddict Female project also included
Toni's very own "Starr Wear" Apparel, Swarovski Crystal Jewelry
and her signature "The Best Ever!" Perfume Fragrance.
Toni now resides near the sunny beaches of paradise in Southwest Florida
with her husband, Wayne and their Havanese Puppy, Trixy "Boo Bear"
where she continues to write and record her self-penned songs
... and is currently writing her very first romance fiction novel.
