Bridgette Tatum Draws Inspiration From Brutal Attack

Bridgette TatumBridgette Tatum loved to sing from the time she was little, but it took a crazy, frightening incident for her to realize it was time to take her dreams seriously and head to Nashville. The ‘She’s Country‘ writer was working at a motel years ago when a disgruntled patron attacked her with a razor, and the experience made her realize just how short life really is, spurring her on to head to Music City. She says recovering from the experience gave her the inspiration to really give her singing career a go.

“I started singing actually when I was about six,” Bridgette tells AmericaJR. “I had some jobs here and there and one was working in a motel. Unfortunately, I had a really bad accident. A girl came in and jumped the counter and slit my face open with a razor blade. It was over some change. It was a racist thing, which everyone needs to be aware, that still exists. It still pretty much alive in the south. It was the moment that got me to Nashville because I went to recuperate on an island for six months. I thought, you know what, I could have died, I could not be here today. I’m going to get to Nashville because the music was in me.”

Bridgette’s debut album, ‘A Taste of Sex. Church and Chicken’ has been released to digital outlets. The singer recently made an appearance with rocker Pat Benatar at Speed Street in Charlotte, N.C.
