Meredith Edwards is country's newest sensation. She has a jam-packed schedule of touring and promoting her new album. But Meredith made time to tell Kidzworld all about her adventurous career.

Meredith Edwards has come a long way since she was singing in pageants in her home town of Clinton, Mississippi. Now this beauty with the sweet country twang is traveling across the US, attending award shows and lending her pipes to a soundtrack. Meredith took time out of her jam-packed schedule to tell Kidzworld all about her adventurous career.

The last year has been huge for you - what has been the highlight?

"Definitely being able to get out in front of audiences and being able to sing my music. That is why I do this. I don't do it for anything else. I love to entertain and I love to perform. Definitely just being able to get out in a crowd of 50,000 people has been huge for me. I am very honored to have been able to do that."

Do you ever get stage fright?

"Umm... not really. I probably get more nervous when I sing in front of a crowd of 15 people rather than 15,000. The smaller the crowd is, the more nervous I get. If you're singing in front of a lot of people, you normally don't know that many people in the audience and you can't see a lot of faces. If you're in a small room in an intimate setting and you have 15 people in there you can see what their expressions are and whether they like it or don't like it."

Are you happy with the first single and the way the album has gone since it's been released?

"Definitely. I am really, really excited. I am anxious too for the release of the next single. I think that'll be released in the very beginning of October. It's called Ready To Fall and it's on the soundtrack of the new movie On The Line. It's playing during the trailers and it's kinda like the theme song for the movie. I'm really looking forward to that and everything that is going to go with that."

Have you shot a video for Ready To Fall yet?

"No, we haven't shot the video yet. We are thinking up some concepts. We're gonna try and tie in the movie a little bit. I don't know if you've seen Faith Hill's video for the song in Pearl Harbor. She tied in some themes from the movie with the video and I thought that was really cool. We may do something like that and tie in some movie scenes."

What is your most embarassing moment?

"We were doing a show one time in Denver, Colorado and it was pouring down rain. I got out there and sang my songs and I was sopping wet! I wear an in-ear monitor during the show and while I was on stage my manager said, 'Meredith look to your left.' And I looked out there and the production manager was standing on the side of the stage with a 100 dollar bill. He said, 'Meredith I will give you this 100 dollars if you slip and slide on the stage.'
I was like - oh my gosh! There was dead time and the crowd was just looking at me like - what is going on. So I told them, but I wasn't going to do it. I didn't feel like it and I don't do this like that. I am not a little daredevil, but then I thought - that's a hundred dollars. So I just did it. Head first, across the stage, and it was so much fun! But when I look back on it now I think oh my gosh it was so embarassing. I got the hundred dollars though!"

With what happened with AJ and Mariah Carey recently, how do you handle the pressure of the business?

"There is definitely a lot of pressure and stress and frustration to this, but I always find time for myself. I always find time to do something else other than work - like go shopping or go to the Bahamas or something. I had a point when I was so wrapped up in everything and it was all that was on my mind so I pulled myself back for four days. I didn't answer any phone calls and I didn't think about it."
