Nora Collins is rocking the country music scene with her throwback pop-country style. She's a little bit Dolly Parton-meets-Miranda Lambert with cheeky, Midwestern spunk that comes through in her songwriting and performances.

Collins has already opened for big names such as Brandy Clark and Phil Vassar; she's also working on an EP with producer Marshall Altman. In late March, Collins released the first single from that project, "Who Knows Who," an upbeat, peppy tune that tells the story of the games we all play in relationships -- and sets the stage for more musical goodness from this talented singer-songwriter.
