Candy Coburn is an American national performing country music artist who has shared the stage with many notable artists, including Brooks and Dunn, Kellie Pickler, Montgomery Gentry, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Gary Allan, Josh Turner, Lady Antebellum and others. Scheduled to release her third album in 2010, Candy's most notable contribution to music so far has been her song, "Pink Warrior." Candy Coburn was born in Kentucky and raised in Missouri and Texas. Her love for music came from her grandmother, who listened to gospel music along with Glenn Miller, Loretta Lynn and George Jones. Candy knew from her very earliest memories she was meant for a career in music entertainment, and began to dedicate herself to learning everything she needed to become a successful performer. She went to the University of Missouri on a vocal scholarship and completed a degree in Theatre. Although her performances in the University musicals were very popular with audiences, Candy was drawn more toward a career as a musician. After college, Candy began learning to write her own songs and later got the first of a series of green guitars which quickly became known as her signature green guitar. When the guitar was irreparably damaged in a car accident on the way to the Season 3 Regional competition of Nashville Star, the Alvarez Guitar company found out about the accident and provided her with several green guitars during a two year endorsement deal. In 2008, the Carvin Corporation picked up where Alvarez left off and continued to provide Candy with her signature green guitars. Candy's first album, Enjoy the Ride, was followed by her second, Rev It Up, which came out in 2007. Coburn focused on including songs with a Southern Rock style on her album and in shows. While writing and searching for music to put on the Rev It Up album, Candy's friend and mentor, George McCorkle of the original Marshall Tucker Band offered to let her choose one of his songs to include on her second album and agreed to accompany her. Candy chose "Fire On the Mountain." McCorkle appeared several times on stage with Coburn after the album release to sing the song with her. McCorkle's final show of support came when he made the trip from his home in Tennessee to appear on a live Missouri CW 11 television special, "Live at the Gillioz with Candy Coburn." McCorkle sang several songs with Coburn, including "Fire On the Mountain," and ended what was to be his final performance with the Marshall Tucker Band song, "Can't You See," before leaving the stage. One week later, doctors discovered McCorkle had stage 4 cancer. Two weeks after his final show with Coburn, George McCorkle died. McCorkle's friends put together a music video using the Coburn-McCorkle version of "Fire On the Mountain" from the "Rev It Up" album to honor his memory. Three singles from the "Rev It Up" album were released in Southwestern United States: "Hard to be Good in Texas," "Rev It Up," and "Big Dream in a Little Town." All three singles did well on the nationally recognized Texas country music chart, attaining #8, #10 and #26, respectively. In 2007, Coburn became one of the first female artists to be sponsored by Anheuser-Busch as a Budweiser Concert Series Artist. In 2008 she was presented with a custom designed Budweiser Taylor Guitar in her signature green color. Candy continued to be sponsored as a Budweiser artist in 2009, 2010, and 2011.
