Rebecca Henricks may be an astronaut’s wife, but her other job has her singing her heart out all over the world. Henricks’ music is a unique blend of traditional country and bluegrass that is a sound that is distinctly her own.
Her energy comes straight from her heart and her inner beauty shines through her infectious smile and personality. Henricks is a modern-day June Carter Cash whose straighten-up-and-fly-right Texas roots, talent and southern hospitality will have audiences at howdy and charm them ever after.
Rebecca Grantham was born in Dallas and moved to East Texas when she was a teenager. She graduated from Marshall High School and East Texas Baptist University. Rebecca married Tom Henricks in Dallas. Tom is a retired USAF colonel and was a pilot/commander of four successful space shuttle missions. Tom and Rebecca met at Barksdale Air Force Base on a blind date at a Mardi Gras Ball. Tom asked Rebecca to dance and they’ve been dancing ever since.
Producers and event coordinators say that Rebecca’s shows are energetic and sincere. The passion she puts into singing a powerful ballad or rockin’ a classic country song is undeniable. Whether singing at small town festivals or at functions with out-of-this-world celebrities, Henricks always makes the audience feel at home.
Henricks’ 2004 debut CD, “Stagecoach Road” had three of her own tunes on the Top 50 List of The Texas Regional Radio Charts. July 12, 2007, she released the highly anticipated CD, “Dance With Me.” July 1, 2008, she returned to her gospel roots and released “Sunday Morning.” After fabulous reviews from the press, Rebecca landed on the cover of the October/November 2007 issue of Southern Vanity Magazine.
To sum it up, Southern Vanity says it best, “Hailing from East Texas, country music singer and songwriter performs now to sold-out venues across this great big land. The forecast for Henricks? Sunny and warm… not a cloud in the sky.”
