Hard work really does pay off. Just ask a Central New York native who has been chasing her dreams of making it big in Nashville for more than a decade.

The road to success has been a long one for Alexandria Corn. It began in her hometown of New Hartford and led to Ithaca where she studied musical theater. Then it was on to L.A. for a few years before leading to Nashville, Tennessee where she finally signed her first record deal. "We haven't even made the announcement in Nashville yet, said Corn. "You're the first to know."

The dream sometimes seemed out of reach for Corn who's been in the music business since she was a teen. "I was so close to giving up. It's been so long but you keep pushing at it."

That never give up attitude finally paid off. Corn signed a joint deal with Deluge on Music Row and Growhouse Music. "I'm so excited but I'm nervous," admitted Corn who will be busy writing and recording music for a new album.

FrogFest 33

Corn will have to make time in her busy schedule for FrogFest33 on June 18 at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds with Dylan Scott. She's no stranger to playing for her hometown fans. Corn was part of FrogFest 29 with Chris Janson at the Utica Rome Speedway in 2017 and FrogFest 32 with the Eli Young Band last September.
