Country music has always been in the heart of 17-year-old entertainer Kristi LaRae Goldade.

By the age of three, Goldade could be found singing along with her sisters to some of country music's most legendary songs. At eight years old when on a family vacation in the badlands of Medora, she was introduced to yodeling. She was simply amazed by the sound and soon set out to learn this technique. Goldade could be found practicing every evening while feeding dairy calves on the family dairy and grain farm.

Later that fall, Goldade got up on stage for the first time. As a result of her abilities, she was asked to entertain for various events. Soon news of her talent spread across the Midwest.

At the tender age of 10, Goldade started playing guitar and by the time she was 11 she recorded her very first CD.With her seasoned vocals, Goldade was heard across the Midwestern states and also other parts of the country, such as Arkansas and Nashville, Tenn.

She has appeared at countless county and state fairs, family gatherings, centennials, quasquicentennials, the Minot Norsk Hostfest,and other events.She has also been a guest at the Midwest Country Theater in Sandstone, Minn., which is aired on television. She has beena pre-show artist for the Medora Musical.

Through it all, Goldade has met many musicians and singers. She has recorded four CDs thus far and receives air time on local radio stations every week.

In 2008, Goldade was encouraged by fans to enter the Colgate Country Showdown competition in Mobridge, S.D. There she won the local competition and moved on to the state competition also winning that title. At that time, she was only 14 years old and the youngest state winner in the United States.

Goldade enjoys living life out in the country, riding horse, tending to farm animals, and spending time with family and friends. She loves to express herself through the songs she writes and performs. Her heart has always been in music, and she encourages people of all ages to follow their dreams.
