Tricia Walker is a singer and songwriter whose songs are steeped in the
passion, pain and grace of the American South. Born and raised in
Mississippi, Tricia has become one of the clearest voices of her own time
and place. Her music has been recorded by Faith Hill, Patty Loveless and
Alison Krauss, whose performance of Tricia’s Looking in the Eyes of Love
earned a GRAMMY® award. A recording artist herself, Tricia’s CD, “The
Heart of Dixie,” thoughtfully captures the songwriter’s view of the South
with well-placed lyrics and music reflecting her folk,
R & B and storytellinginfluences.
She has performed at the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Tin Pan
South Songwriting Festival in Nashville.
Tricia returned to her native Mississippi in 2006 to become director of the
Delta Music Institute, an entertainment industry studies program at her
alma mater, Delta State University. After retiring from DSU in the summer
of 2019, she was awarded the title of Director Emeritus and plans to
develop new musical and creative projects for Big Front Porch
Productions. Tricia was recently honored with the 2019 Lifetime
Achievement Award by the Mississippi Writer’s Guild.
