Sarah Rowe, a New Mexico native, wore her fair share of hats in her life, from wedding photographer to creative director to all-around boss babe. Needless to say, she has always pursued her goals.
Since the pandemic, the photographer turned to music. She tested her musical range with the powerful anthem, “Bullsh*t,” then with a softer, classic, “Break First.” Her musical endeavors inspired her latest release, an encouraging and uplifting melody about chasing her aspirations called, “Wild West Dreams.”
“This song is all about embracing and knowing who you are and who you want to become– all while trusting in who you were made to be,” Sarah said.
Her music is inspired by the greats– Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, and Faith Hill– to name a few.
She included a quote from Dolly Parton in her sneak peek video: “Dreams don’t just come true by themselves, you gotta put wings on ‘em and see where they take you.”
“As far as inspiration goes, I always go back to the roots of country and what I listened to growing up,” she said. “Honestly all of the strong amazing women that have paved and are still helping pave the way for girls like me with a dream.”
Her favorite lyric from the song is “No matter where I go, they always lead me home.”
“I’m proud of where I come from,” Sarah said. “To me, this line reflects a deep appreciation for where I come from, how I was raised, and the things that make me who I am. I’ve always felt free to spread my wings and see what all was out in the great yonder because I knew home is just right there.”
In her eyes, no dreams are too big.
“When the gate is pulled and it’s your turn, be ready to burn the breeze and be free and fearless, like a wild palomino running in the direction of who it was made to be.”
She ended with a smile and the advice she’d share with those blazing their own trails and chasing their dreams.
“Align yourself, set the target, take a leap of faith, do the work, and trust. Trust that you will find the moments, people, opportunities, and chances that are made just for you. When things are tough and things aren’t as clear, walk by faith, and surrender to the journey. All good things take time, and here I am years later still pushing. Cowgirls don’t quit.”
