NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 24, 2018) – Country Music Artist Dixie Jade reminds their fans to wear their life jackets and be safe on the water.

The music duo is partnering with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to encourage his fans to be safe on the water and to wear a life jacket.   Fierce & radiant, Dixie Jade blend their love for classic country and vintage soul with in-your-face pop radio production. A duo in every way, their music marries the strength of powerful vocals and bold guitar riffs with the sincerity of a reflective heart. In their words it’s “Grit and Amazing Grace”.

Andrea (lead vocals/piano) and Dominique (vocals/lead guitar) first met while they were music students at USC. Although they never spoke, fatefully they ended up in the same choir and creative writing classes as juniors. A year later, Andrea recognized and approached Dominique at a songwriter’s open mic night hosted by The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. They bonded over their love of 90’s country and the blues, and a fast friendship quickly turned into a creative partnership.  Since then they’ve written hundreds of songs together and toured across the nation.

"Dixie Jade loves the lakes in this area and often frequent them to recreate and have fun," said Mark Rankin, Nashville District Public Affairs Specialist.  "They both have access a boat and you can catch them almost any day of the week skiing, swimming or just relaxing with family and friends. We thank them for helping the Corps get the word out about water safety and making sure that everyone should wear a life jacket when out on Corps lakes."
