Nashville-based, international publicity/media agency MapleStar Music & Media is proud to announce our company's new addition for management and publicity representation, Jackie Arredondo. 

“This is very exciting for us,” said MapleStar Music & Media’s Cameron Tilbury. “Ms Arredondo is extremely talented, both as a singer and vocal coach. Country music is increasing in popularity in the Latin markets, and we’re proud that Jackie has chosen to work with MapleStar Music & Media.”

Sheyla Paz Hicks, who handles MapleStar Music & Media en Español, is happy with the signing as well. “This is our first signing of a Latin-American country artist and we can’t wait to share her with the world and really show people that country music has no borders.”

MapleStar Music & Media will be involved in all aspects of Jackie Arredondo’s career. “I’ve heard great things about MapleStar Music & Media,” said Ms Arredondo. “I think this is going to be the beginning of something ‘muy especial.’”

Jackie opens 2013 with the right foot with new music and new label.  After a 6 month brake from her solo career to go instruct a reality show singing competition for Univision’s high rating variety show for over 25 years SABADO GIGANTE and Don Francisco this past 2012, she returns to music with another twist.

This time she has something else up her sleeve with music for the Hispanic music industry but TOTALLY COUNTRY!  A Spanish version of RASCAL FLATTS’ mega HIT ‘Come Wake Me Up” called “DESPIERTAME”.  Jackie will be releasing a series of Country HIT covers in Spanish, and a full album on the successful trio.  The Latin Country Diva’s dream is to collaborate with Rascal Flatts and she says she will not stop till she gets to them.  Jackie’s goal is for her roots to learn about the amazing talent that Country music has to offer hoping the Latinos fall in love with the genre through her voice just as much as she is.  The cover compilations will be released under the title LA ARREDONDO which sets them aside from her original country music in English.

Jackie Arredondo fell in love with country music while driving an 18 wheeler.  Country music radio was all she listened to while she was on the road. Her new EP Just Call Me… Jackie is so titled because she’d often encountered people asking how to pronounce her last name.

There’s a unique new genre in the making here. One listen to “ROCKIN THAT TRAILER” will hook any country music fan. But Jackie’s diverse talent goes beyond where country’s been so far. Beautiful Jackie Arredondo explains, “I would love to introduce Pop Country Latino to the Latin music market.” She says she loves the idea of putting country elements of steel guitars and country fiddles together with some Spanish flare and those trilling rolling R’s.

Jackie Arredondo’s “ROCKIN THAT TRAILER” single is available now on iTunes and the five song EP Just Call Me… Jackie will be available for purchase in September 2011.
