“Melinda Schneider is simply wonderful! She is one of those unique performers who sound as good live as they do on a CD. Her show ‘Great Women of Country’ was completely captivating. The band feature some of the best musicians in the country and her voice, performance and connection with the audience are world class. It was an absolute pleasure to watch and listen to Melinda perform ‘Great Women of Country’”.
