Sarah Darling was born in Des Moines, Iowa, where her earliest exposure to country music came on Sunday mornings when her grandfather would listen to the radio while driving her to church. She grew up writing poetry and eventually began writing songs. From her national TV appearances to the launch of her new line of boots with partner Durango to the success of her French macaron company, Sweet Darling Patisserie, and a robust touring schedule, Sarah is a very busy young woman.
Sarah's singles include "Home to Me" and "Little Umbrellas." She's been called "a sophisticated songwriter with a crisp, powerful voice" by The New York Times and she's been tagged "Nashville's Darling" by Music City's Convention and Visitors Bureau. She made even more fans as a contestant on the TV show Rising Star.
She's made over 60 appearances on the Grand Ole Opry since her February 2011 debut. One special moment was the night Opry member Brad Paisley asked her to sing a duet of "Whiskey Lullaby" with him.
"It's always a thrill to perform at the Opry," she told Sports & Entertainment Nashville. "It's a stage that's allowed me to become a better performer and a better person. I'm absolutely on cloud nine, playing the same stage as the artists that influenced my music."
