Sunday Driving with CMT Reality TV Star and Country Music Singer Marthia Sides

Meet Marthia Sides:  Country Music Singer, CMT Reality TV Star, Host, Actress, Image Consultant who loves Antiques, Fashion & Entertaining! I recently met Marthia when I traveled to Nashville. She is a multi-talented Singer/Songwriter who puts the pieces of success together with her latest radio single for the holidays “Angels In The Snow” SPOILER: you will cry, but in a good way, and I can't stop thinking about this song! After speaking with Marthia, I discovered the same thing happened to her when she heard and then just knew she had to record it.

The Virginia-Born performer had a successful career off Broadway and in TV and film before launching her music career after a chance encounter with a songwriter while shooting the CMT reality show “Popularity Contest.”

Is there anything that you regret?
Not really? I feel like I've lived my life my way and try to be an honest woman and treat people fairly.

How do you use Social Media in your industry for productivity?
I try to connect with Country Music fans and people who want to know more about my music, my family’s Antique business and keep up with the fashion trends.  I don’t post to Facebook and twitter what I had for breakfast-unless it's served by Bobby Flay.
