Trena Douglas and Freddie Edwards

As a child born to George Simon and Patricia Lay Douglas on June 15, 1968, it was evident at an early age a child prodigy had arrived.  Between milking cows, working in the logging woods and tobacco fields, Trena somehow found the inner strength to write her songs, through hardships most have never shared.  Penning her first song at the tender age of 14, “The Forkland Flower”. It was evident her vision and awareness were far beyond her years.  Encouraged by family, friends and industry professionals her first CD ...."Long Hard Road...." is scheduled for fall 2014 Release.  Time has come for Trena to walk out of Scrubgrass Hollow, and let the world share her extraordinary talent and hear true Americana Music in its purest form.
