Katie Nicole Dix was born in Bakersfield, California. Her desire for being on stage began when she very young and is best known in her hometown playing the title roles and lead vocals in numerous musical theater productions, contests, and exhibitions.
Katie was introduced to country music by legendary singer Buck Owens. When he learned of her talent, he showcased her regularly at his world-renowned Crystal Palace stage. This unique opportunity paved the way for her to be seen and heard on a larger scale. She was a vibrant, wide-eyed, impressive talent that Buck clearly observed had the “it” factor. One evening Buck prophetically announced to his audience, "This is Katie Dix and you’re ‘gonna hear a lot more of her." Buck’s mentoring, influence, and encouragement inspired Katie to strive for a full-time career in entertainment. Katie is driven to succeed and she likes to think he is watching proudly from above.
After Buck’s passing, Katie moved to Las Vegas where she established herself as a singer with a captivating stage presence. Her very playful personality, wit, and charm undoubtedly helped her capture the attention of employers, casting agents, and producers alike. She was quickly chosen to front several country and top 40's bands which has played several casinos on and off the Las Vegas Strip and corporate functions. In addition to singing with her band, American Superstars at the Stratosphere sought after Katie to join the cast as a tribute artist. It was there that she could exhibit her strong singing, dancing, and acting abilities in the style of Carrie Underwood. When American Superstars show retired, Katie began singing at the prestigious Mastros Steakhouse and Ocean club Las Vegas.
Moving to Los Angeles, Katie was instrumental in helping showcase Vegas talent to Mastros restaurants in California. In addition to singing at Mastros, Katie has also joined two bands, "Hot Country Nights", a hard hitting country/rock show band and "Double Shot" a fun party pop band as the lead vocalist with performances around California. She has performed her own original music and legendary music venues such as The Viper Room, The Mint and The Hotel Cafe where she shared the stage with Ingrid Andress, Curt Chambers and Chaley Rose.
Sir Rod Stewart invited Katie to join his band and soon thereafter traveled on his 13 country 2019 European tour and his current 2020 U.S. tour.
