Memphis singer/songwriter Valerie June got some national television exposure Sunday night on the Academy of Country Music awards show. Singing harmony behind country star Eric Church, June created a buzz, as the Internet lit up with people searching to discover who she was. Sporting her trademark dreadlocks and a stunning red dress, June was a singular presence on a show honoring country music. She did Memphis proud.
