This real New England girl embraces a true country lifestyle, as much as her country music. Meet my Local Catch of the Week, Whitney Doucet from Fitchburg. Born and raised in north Worcester county, Whitney is a talented singer/songwriter, and a hugely popular live performer. Get to know Whitney here. Learn all about this artists likes, career, gigs and new music.
When she not on stage, or in the recording studio, you may find Ms. Doucet performing the National Anthem for one of Boston’s professional sports teams. Whitney also was giving the honor of performing it in front of 100,000 fans at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. That was for NASCAR that aired live on ABC for millions of viewers.
Living Her Dream
I’ve known Whitney for quite a few years now, and with each new song, with every performance, she continues to grow. It’s inspiring to watch her journey in a business that can be harsh. She continues to do her thing, and make her music her way. On stage, Doucet never seems anything but excited and honored to be there. This is an artist who absolutely loves what she does. And it shows.
Below, give a listen to the new song from Fitchburg’s pride and joy. “Never Mine” is lyrically clever and delivered in the usual passionate Whitney style. Embracing each phrase with fervent candor, Doucet delivers the goods on a song about a love that could’ve been.
Nearly 10 years ago, this New England artist earned the right to sing a duet with Keith Urban, thanks to a contest on our station, Country 1025. She had submitted a video and won her way on stage to sing the Miranda Lambert part of “We Were Us.” That experience inspired her to continue her music career. Now, she is a full-time working musician.
Today, you can see Whitney and her band all over the place. Together they bring a high energy, fun vibe to the stage. Check out the dates to see Whitney Doucet, acoustic or with the Moonshine band.
