7. Fashion shot: Heidi Newfield
8. SOUNDBITE (English) Heidi Newfield/Musician:
“Actually, this one is a little bit more laid back. This one is really fun. Like I found a really fun piece, it’s easy. Throw the boots on, throw the dress on — well, this is more like a shirt than a dress — but you know it’s really the hair and makeup that take a little bit longer. Everything else, this is a little bit more rock and roll, a little more laid back and fun.”

15. SOUNDBITE (English) Emily West/Musician:
“I actually had a sit-down conversation with a friend of mine who said, ‘You know, you have a loud mouth on you. You need to try being the jean and T-shirt girl because you’re so big, your personality is so big, you don’t need to try.’ And I go, ‘My personality is in my clothes, you know, and if they have a hard time with it, then whatever, then don’t buy my record!’ No, I’m kidding. Just buy it! but I’m sorry, I’m just gaudy.”

“Well, this was the dress I was supposed to wear to the CMAs. The zipper broke, unfortunately, so I had to wear a dress that, I don’t know, hopefully no one saw that, but this was the one I was supposed to wear, so I figured since I still had it in my closet and I hadn’t worn it to anything, because I don’t just wear this out, these dresses I wear to special occasions and this is a special occasion.”
