In 1981, Ronald Reagan took the official oath of office and became the 40th President of the United States. That same year a young 20-year-old songwriter from northwest Arkansas recorded her first album, and a few years later she caught the attention of listeners with her first No. 1 song, "The Warrior Is a Child."

 Fast forward to 2012. Politics is the talk of the media as another election year is upon us, leaving Americans to decide who will be our 45th president. The 20-year-old girl who voted for Ronald Reagan in her first presidential election grew up to become evergreen artist Twila Paris, who today is a working mom, balancing career and family. With 22 albums, 33 No. 1 hits, numerous Dove Awards, including three for Female Vocalist of the Year‚and over 1.3 million albums sold in the course of her tenure, Paris' career contains almost as many significant milestones as our nation's history. In fact, current events and the tumultuous ups and downs of American history have played an integral part in shaping Paris' songwriting throughout the past 30-plus years of her career.
