"I see Amber as being a lot like Elizabeth Cook," he says. "I know I'm prejudiced, but I think Amber sings as well as any female country singer ever has, and I think she's going to cut something that takes her to the next level soon.

Pitcox is even willing to sacrifice Digby to a bigger label if it helps further her career, he says, and opens the door for similar artists: "When she makes that next step, she's going to help all the traditional country acts striving to get somewhere higher."

Besides that killer schedule, Digby doesn't play in Houston all that much for another, very sound, reason.

After growing up on Loretta Lynn's tour bus, Amber Digby is now co-writing songs with Vince Gill.
