Goldy Locks Fires Back At Alex Shelley, WWE Update
Few fans can forget Goldy Locks. Early on TNA's days, she was all over the show doing both interviews and managing. Her face was recognizable each and every show. Today, TNA fans may be more familiar with her voice. She currently sings the theme song for a number of TNA stars including Winter and Dixie Carter. She tells James Guttman how honored she is to be able to do that and how supportive TNA has always been of her musical aspirations. They gave her the opportunity to work regularly for the wrestling business while still creating music. Her latest video for "It's a Sure Great Day For a Wedding" is already creating a buzz and she tells ClubWWI.com members about the very personal feelings behind it.
"That story is that I was dating a pretty famous country artist in town who comes from really amazing lineage and stock. I'm in my 30s and I really don't plan on getting married or having kids. I just want to rock and do what I do. I met this guy and, for the first time in my life, I was actually thinking about what it would be like to be married to someone like this. We're both in the business. Obviously, he's in at a different level and his family is. What if I ever had a kid with someone like this? What a voice. This is about breeding! (laughs) I would marry into something really special and spectacular.
"Everything was going great. He brought me out at the Grand Ole Opry and introduced me to everybody as "this is the woman I'm going to spend my life with" and I was really getting into it. I wrote this song, "It's a Sure Great Day For a Wedding", and I spoke to his mom. She's like, "Oh, we're going to have the wedding at my house in the back" and we started to go down that road of thinking about that stuff - which I never did (before then). Then, then next day, it was off. The promise ring was off. Everything was off. So I came up with this idea that I wanted to give this song away free as a free download for everyone who is getting married or going to a bachelorette party or bachelor party."
Goldy's song is up on her site and also on Youtube. You can hear it yourself on GoldyLocks.net or directly on Youtube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuchsolIyhU
One thing that might strike long time fans is Goldy Locks's admission that her run in TNA had moments she wishes had gone differently. Coming from a non-wrestling background, Goldy didn't properly understand the business and handled herself in ways she wishes she can take back in some cases. She speaks to James about discovering respect for the wrestling industry and things she wishes she could do again including listening closer to advice from long time veterans. As Guttman points out, though, Goldy had a flair for what she did and her reactions to many on-air situations seemed real and related often to what the audience was thinking. While Locks appreciated his sentiments, she points out during her ClubWWI.com shoot that not everyone feels that way about her.
"It's so great of you to say 'someone so great in the ring' when there's so many things, there's so many shoots I read online, with some of the people I worked with and actually tried to help get into the league and into the promotion, and then they're just complete a**holes and pricks and talk a bunch of junk about me. But I'm really happy to have anyone diss me who feels like it because it's just more publicity for me. So, I always like to say to those people, thank you for keeping my name alive in the wrestling business. I appreciate it very much."
