CONNIE MIMS PINKERTON began her career in Houston in the 1970’s with the Texas band WHEATFIELD which evolved into the band ST. ELMO’S FIRE. WHEATFIELD appeared in the first season of the PBS TV series Austin City Limits, in 1976. After disbanding in 1979, Connie pursued a solo career as a performing songwriter and studio vocalist, appearing on numerous radio ads and in the classic 1989 Blue Bell Ice Cream TV commercial, “Texas Musicians”. In the 90’s, her comedic vocal impersonations of well-known recording artists were made popular on the nationally syndicated Q-Zoo in the Morning radio network. Since 2003, she has served on the Board of Governors for the Texas Chapter of The Recording Academy (GRAMMYS), facilitated songwriting workshops for The Recording Academy’s GRAMMY Career Day, Ozark Folk Center, Kerrville Folk Festival and NSAI. She was the founder and workshop coordinator for both the North Houston and East Texas Chapters of Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI). She continues to write, record and tour with Craig Calvert, Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood (Trout Fishing in America) as WHEATFIELD.

In addition to her songwriting and recording credits with WHEATFIELD, her individual artist discography includes three albums: Connie Mims (1983), Go Deep (2008), and Gettin’ There (2012). In 2009, she was awarded “Singer/Songwriter of the Year”, by the Academy of Texas Music, the first woman to receive the honor, and in 2015, she was voted “The Best Singer/Songwriter of Upper East Texas” by a reader’s poll in County Line Magazine. A songwriter and publishing affiliate with BMI, Connie enjoys co-writing and producing various projects, as well as assisting others in their creative pursuits. She lives near Tyler, Texas, with her husband Jeff.
