      Bio

      Paulette was born and raised in Minnesota and knew at a young age that she was meant to sing. After working the clubs in the Midwest for years she traveled to Nashville . Soon after arriving in Music City she landed a job as a staff writer for the Oak Ridge Boys publishing company Silverline Goldline. In 1985 she hooked up with manager Chuck Morris and formed the legendary band Highway 101, winning ACM and CMA awards both in 1988 and 1989. Their first hit single was song Paulette penned called The Bed You Made For Me . The next five years would turn out to be hit after hit. Their songs included Whiskey, If You Were A Woman , Somewhere Tonight , Cry Cry Cry , Who's Lonely Now , Honky Tonk Heart and All The Reasons Why , to name a few.

      Paulette moved on from the band after a great 5 year run with her Highway friends. Paulette married in the fall of 1989 and she and her husband Randy started their family in 1991 with the birth of their daughter Cali .

      Paulette continued to write and recorded an album for capital records called I'll Start With You . In 1996 Paulette pulled off the road and settled in Montana to raise her daughter with her husband.

      In the fall of 2004 Paulette wrote a song inspired by her brother Gary and the many other Vietnam vets she had known, called Thank You Vets . As Paulette says, " Thank You Vets just wrote itself in a matter of 10 minutes and I knew after I had written it that I would be going back to work. Thank You Vets is a song that needs to be heard and I felt a great responsibility to this piece of music. I could not just put it on the shelf with the other songs I had written."

      Paulette produced to take the steps necessary to move back to Nashville, acquiring a home and letting her peers know she was back. During this time period she heard of some folks who were doing what she thought was a simple concert for our Vietnam Vets. She immediately called them and told them that she would like to come and sing a song for our veterans. It turns out that this was not just a simple concert; this was going to be the first national homecoming for our Vietnam vets, Operation Homecoming USA .

      Paulette decided to call up her friends in Nashville and proceed with her album. It was an eleven day whirlwind. Just one glitch could have put the whole project off schedule, but everything went so smoothly. It was meant to be. Her inspiration to come back to work was from a need to sing a song for our Vietnam Vets, but her album is it what many believe to be her finest country CD.

      Paulette is a woman with a purpose and her new album is one that is inspired by family, country and our veterans.
