Rising country singer and Greek-American country artist Paulina Jayne spoke via telephone with Markos Papadatos about her four nominations at the Detroit Music Awards, which are slated to take place next month.

Born Paulina Jayne Perakis, she is nominated in such categories as “Outstanding Vocalist/Band,” “Outstanding Songwriter,” “Outstanding Song” as well as “Outstanding People’s Choice Song.” “That was so cool and it was such an honor. I am very excited and I hope we can come home with a couple of wins,” she said. “My band will be excited too and we are looking forward to it.”

Paulina noted that she was inspired musically by such artists as Blackberry Smoke, Adele, Pink and Miranda Lambert. Throughout her career, she has shared the stage with such artists as Kenny Chesney and Sheryl Crow. “Opening for Sheryl Crow at the DTE Music Theatre was one of my favorite shows that I have ever played. Sheryl and her whole band were absolutely incredible,” Paulina stated. “Opening for Kenny was a dream come true for me and I hope to do it again next year.”

Paulina wrote the song “Mississippi Girl” at the age of 14 and she dubbed it as one of her “favorite records.”

The country songstress revealed that this summer she will play a lot of live shows and she is looking forward to her forthcoming CD release party.

Paulina listed Luke Bryan, Hunter Hayes and Blake Shelton as the male country artists that she would love to someday collaborate with.
