"I think songwriters are saints, and I'm just trying to get to Heaven"
Born and raised in the woods of Louisiana right off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and along the banks of the Sabine River, Sara Douga is country music. Her entrancing melodies are filled with lyrics that cut straight to the heart. Her stage presence reveals everything she lives and believes; “Life is beautiful, and love is worth it.” Douga’s fun-loving, bubbly personality combined with warm, smooth vocals seem to tease every nerve in the body. While capturing audiences of all ages, Douga is a beacon of light for traditional country music lovers. Truth is universal and when it’s wrapped up in melodies and vocals like hers, everyone listens.
Before moving to Nashville in 2019, Douga self-released her debut record; Boots, Bras, and Drawers which was quickly recognized by Country Music People Magazine and BBC Radio. While still fairly new to town, Douga’s heroes have already taken notice. Her first cut as a songwriter came from the legendary Jim Lauderdale on his latest country album, From Another World, which launched Douga straight into the spotlight at The Grand Ole Opry Stage for her first official performance as a Nashville resident. Lauderdale has since recorded four of his and Douga’s co-written songs.
Amidst the height of the 2020 Pandemic, Douga gave her audience a dose of happiness. She released a lighthearted, acoustic EP, Lines, accompanied with a witty music video. Generously supported by CMT, SiriusXM ‘The Outlaw’, and CountryLine TV, Douga’s “Lines” has established a highly engaged global presence.
Right behind Lines, came Joe & Gin, a fully produced studio EP. The title track made its world premiere on Bob Harris’ BBC Radio2 Country Show, and spring boarded a load of support from Country Rebel, WSM’s Coffee, Country, & Cody, SiriusXM, and just about every country playlist that Spotify could generate.
Not only is Douga an incredibly talented songwriter and artist, but she is also a published wildlife biologist, wife, and mother of two. Follow Sara Douga as she continues her soaring path to country music stardom on Spotify, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
