Hello country music fans,

Amanda Watkins and Kasey Buckley who used to form the country duo of Miss Willie Brown, have decided to pursue separate opportunities. Amanda will continue on her journey as a solo country music artist. A joint statement appeared on their Facebook page:

To Our Dear and Loyal Fans,
We would like to share some news with all of you and look forward to your support and understanding. We have decided to part ways as a band to pursue our separate dreams. With Kasey’s and your support, I will be continuing my career in music as Amanda Watkins and carrying on the heart and soul on which Miss Willie Brown was built. I support Kasey as she decides to take a break from the world of music. I’m sure as you have seen over the past few years, there is nothing that will ever come between us.
The songs that you have been loving and playing will be ever present on my solo journey. It’s going to be a great year with lots to come! And I promise to keep you updated every step of the way through touring, videos, posts and most of all music.
Thank you for all the support you have shown us. You are honestly the greatest fans.
Love,
Amanda & Kasey
