   Elaine's music career started with piano lessons at the age of three years old in her hometown of Chattanooga. At the age of 17 upon graduating from High School, she was offered a spot with the well known touring Rock Band Side Winder playing concerts with acts such as Marshall Tucker Band, Dixie Dregs and Black Oak Arkansas.

Elaine played piano and sang harmony, sharing lead vocal time with Roger.

   When not on the road she was in the studio singing demos, harmony and working on her own recording projects. She also performed in and around town sharing the stage with the like of Chet Atkins, Mickey Gilley and Billy Ray Cyrus to name a few. Elaine attributes her talent to her heritage. Being a blood relative of Hank Williams, she often returns to Georgiana to perform at the Festival honoring Hank's life and music and always enjoys spending time with her Family there.
