Vivian joined Branded Cross when the group first assembled and has held down the rhythm guitar part on her prized Martin guitar since day one. Her music journey began at age 12 in a little church in Eddy Texas. She played guitar and sang throughout her teen years. While attending a youth retreat at Lathem Springs Baptist Church camp she gave her life to Jesus at age 15. After high school she married and started a family. She left music for 25 years and focused on raising her family. In 1998 she returned to performing music again playing primarily classic country, bluegrass and gospel music with a variety of local artists. She is retired now and in addition to playing rhythm guitar she does all the lyric and chart production for the band as well as keep tract of historical information about the band. We can count on Vivian to have a copy of any MP3 we have ever listened to or song chart we have looked at and played through. I don’t think her computer has a delete function. When not working on music or band business Vivian enjoys resting at home watching old movies, listening to a variety of music; studying scripture and playing with a local cat that seems to have adopted her as a companion. We’ve also made the discovery that Vivian has a big weakness for pie and never says no to a cup of coffee.
