Well – let’s see, I started my career in radio in 1998 and swore I would never do anything else. I come from a very musical and theatrical background. My father was a musician, which is how I got my name - “Amy” by Bobby Darin. He stop playing when I was born and then became a music teacher and now runs an old historic theater in Odessa – The Ector Theatre – with my mother. My mother was a dancer – tap and ballet – I don’t know when she stopped dancing and decided to teach dance – but she was my tap teacher. I also took ballet and jazz lessons from the age of 4 until diagnosed with Lupus at 15. I took classical piano lessons for 8 years also. So, as you can see music has always been in my family. I met my husband when we were 16 years old – in my hometown of Odessa, TX – at a Permian High School Football game – where we both graduated. We’ve been together ever since and have 2 kids. He is a Registered Nurse at a local hospital. My son, Jake, is 16 and plays football for Coronado High School (GO STANGS!!) where I am the booster club president for the football team. I absolutely LOVE high school football and have taken it upon myself to “adopt” all 200+ Coronado football players and call them all “son”. I am VERY passionate and protective of those kids! My daughter, Bri, is 10 and plays drums in a little rock band at School of Rock and is in the Honor Choir at her school. She clearly inherited the music from dad and I am excited about that! Her ultimate goal is to be a drummer and lead singer of a rock band – and she will I’m sure! And basically that’s about it – but just for fun I will give you 5 “fun facts” about myself - 1. I have a very real fear of bad odors! 2. Feet absolutely disgust me – and is not something anyone wants to tease me with. 3. I have a titanium mesh plate and nine screws in the back of my head. 4. I LOVE Karaoke! (Don’t judge) 5. I make my bed every night before getting into it because my covers must be straight and perfect. There ya have it – that’s who I am! I’m excited to talk to you, and feel free to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Email or Instagram – I enjoy meeting new people and making new friends!

3 Minutes That Will Make Monday Better!
I know, I know - it's Monday. The day you drag your butt out of bed, get ready for the day and then drive to work looking through only one eye because it's just too difficult to open both eyes.

5 Songs From Amy Lee’s Music Library
In my iTunes account I have a little over 200 songs, however when I listen to my music, I just listen to the different playlists that I’ve made – neglecting some of the other songs. Last night, as usual, I put my ear buds in as I went to bed and instead of just choosing a playlist – I shuffled the entire music library – and ended up staying up most of the night listening to all of the songs I had

What Did You Say?
Yesterday I was standing in line at the grocery store. There was a man standing in front of me who turned around and made an attempt to pay me a compliment. He said (and I hope my ‘spelling’ matches the pronunciation of the words he chose), “Dayum Ma – Whachoo lookin all hawt fo tuhday... Read More ...
