Casey Evans: Farmer, musician, mum, cowgirl

From Nine To Noon, 10:18 am on 1 March 2021

Southern woman Casey Evans has managed to combine her love of horses and music into a truly unique career. After travelling the world working as a horse trainer in the US, Australia and Canada, she's now based back in the Catlins - running a farm with her husband Rhys while raising three-year-old twins Cole and Luke.

She's well-known on the New Zealand rodeo circuit - not just for her abilities as a barrel racer - but for her voice. After success with three of her singles, she's in the process of recording her debut album, slightly delayed - like many things - due to Covid. Casey joins Kathryn to explain how her all-encompassing country lifestyle has seen her become a brand ambassador for Wrangler.
