Ceiling Fan How To by Workmasters with Host Anthony Dawes and Marabeth - Removing the Existing Light FixtureMarabeth grew up in Utah as the second of five children in a family that lived and breathed music and the arts. Her experiences ranged from modeling, acting and dancing, to playing bass and singing in her family band, “White Lightning,” often referred to as the “blonde Osmonds.”

Of all her many experiences growing up, Marabeth found that music was her true passion. She wrote her first song at age 15 and was asked to perform it at a Miss Idaho Falls pageant. The experience was one of the catalysts that set her on a path as a singer and songwriter. Knowing she wanted to start pursuing music as a career, she considered moving to Nashville, not knowing anyone there. The decision was finalized after learning that her singing coach Brett Manning (Can You Duet?) was also making the move. To make ends meet, Marabeth did everything from waiting tables to working as a makeup artist, all the while still striving towards her musical goals.

In her work she found a parallel between her music and the beauty industry in that they have a common ability to enhance peoples’ lives. While living in the Spring Hill area, she saw an opportunity to open a day spa and salon. Today, Natural Oasis Day Spa and Salon has three locations in the greater Nashville area and has been voted among the top 200 salons in America by Salon Today magazine.

Marabeth has also been recognized in the community as a stand out leader in the industry and was featured in the Who’s Who magazine – Women in Business: Seven Women You Should Know. Marabeth enjoys giving back by supporting both her community and charities throughout Tennessee with her music and with her business. In spite of being a busy wife, mother, and business owner, she continues to write music. Notably, her first song was cut by ACM Top New Artist, Julianne Hough, who happens to be her sister. “Dreaming Under the Same Moon” also featured her brother, Derek Hough.

She continues to write songs and has enjoyed collaborating with many outstanding singer songwriters. At first glance, its hard to imagine that Marabeth would be a person who enjoys skydiving, deep sea fishing, mountain biking, camping, dirt bike and Harley riding, even drag racing, a philanthropist and business owner who has been a stunt double and who writes excellent songs.
