    Juni Fisher is an internationally respected western and folk singer-songwriter who was voted Western Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year in 2011. She was also selected as their Female Performer of the Year in 2006, 2009 and 2011. In addition, the Academy of Western Artists named her Female Performer of the Year in 2005. The National Cowboy Museum awarded Fisher with the coveted Western Heritage "Wrangler Award" in 2009 for Most Outstanding Western Album, making her the first female recipient of that award in the history of the National Cowboy Museum's awards. Fisher was originally from a farming family in Strathmore, California. Juni Fisher now lives in Franklin, Tennessee where she moved in 1991. She began singing while in elementary school, in a trio with her sisters. She started playing guitar at age seven and wrote her first song at age eight. She has the highest regard for the Western ballad, which she has described as "a pure form of American folk music". Her musical influences early on included Marty Robbins, Joan Baez and Burl Ives. She enjoys fly fishing in her spare time.
