Lago del Pino: Taylor Heard - Friday, July 26 Taylor has a mature, unique sound all her own, but many compare her to Patsy Cline, Reba, and Shania Twain. Having come from a musical background – she began singing and claiming the stage at the young age of three, writing songs by age seven, and teaching herself to play guitar at twelve. She describes her style of music as a bridge between modern and traditional country that brings out a fresh new sound with an old-school twist.
