Singer battles back from multiple sclerosis, releasing new album

Julie Roberts Julie Roberts

A country music singer that has faced an assortment of obstacles in the past few years is making a comeback with a historic music label.

In 2004, Julie Roberts made a splash with her debut album that went gold, including the hit song Break Down Here.

But in 2010, Roberts was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, lost her home and car to the Nashville floods and also left her recording company.

Now, she is launching an online campaign, asking fans to help fund her new record with legendary label Sun Records.

Supporters to the campaign will gain access into Roberts' journey over the next three months as she completes her new record. Pre-sales are available now at

Incentives for pledgers include producer credit in the liner notes, tickets to release party, a private full band show from Roberts and a first listen of album followed by a dinner with Roberts and her mother.

Titled Good Wine and Bad Decisions, this is the artist's first new album in three years.

"I am excited to do a campaign with PledgeMusic and give my dedicated fans access to my music in a unique way," said Roberts in a news release. "I'm living my dream with this experience and I look forward to be even closer to those who have supported me from the beginning as well as to reach new fans."

Sun Records is the legendary home of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison. The album, available Oct. 29, is the label's first new release in decades.
