“Home Town” star Erin Napier once showed fans her hidden talent, and it has nothing to do with home design
HGTV fans already know that hometown host Erin Napier is extremely talented. The popular hostess is converting real estate in the couple’s hometown, Laurel, Mississippi, along with her husband Ben Napier. Her renovation skills are so good that she has garnered a hit show on HGTV.
But Erin’s skills go beyond home renovations and staging. In the past, she shared a little-known talent that she has been working on for decades.
‘Home Town’ is one of the most popular shows on HGTV right now
Nothing escapes the influence of Chip and Joanna Gaines on HGTV. After the star fixer upper hosts decided to back off their series, the network managers began looking for a worthy replacement. The Napiers easily started where the Gaineses left off.
Hometown isn’t exactly like Fixer Upper, even if they look similar. Overall, Erin has a colorful, “maximalist” design style that has been dubbed “grandma chic,” while Joanna is associated with a modern farmhouse aesthetic. But both women are doing renovations in quaint southern small towns with lots of charm. And they both work with their husbands to handle the Reno projects for the home.
The Napiers have an impressive following on HGTV. The hometown is one of the most watched shows on the network today. The Napiers have made a name for themselves beyond Fixer Upper.
Erin Napier from ‘Home Town’ is also a talented singer

Erin has a real eye for design and for restoring the charm of outdated properties. But she is not only an interior designer, but also a talented singer. The hometown presenter shared on Instagram how important music is to her.
“When I was 14, I started playing music at the downtown Laurel coffeehouse to make a living,” Erin wrote on her Instagram post. “I did this until I graduated from high school when my interest in art kind of drowned out my interest in music, and @ scotsman.co is still mourning it and always asking me to sing him a song. It just wasn’t where my heart was anymore. It’s been so long since I’ve played. At least a year. “
The accompanying video showed her singing “You Are My Sunshine” while playing the guitar. The fans couldn’t believe how good she sounded.

Erin posted her song in 2016 and hasn’t spoken much about music since then. But having a child inspired her to explore her singing talents a little more, especially since her daughter Helen is reportedly a fan of her mother’s voice.
“I haven’t picked up my guitar in a long time, but Helen loves this one and it would be good for you to know it too. I’m rusty and forgetting chords, but it still feels good to sing a song, ”she wrote alongside a video in which she sang Jason Isbell’s“ Something to Love ”.
Fans hope that Helen will inspire Erin to keep singing and posting videos on her channel. It goes well with the hometown renovation content to create the idyllic, family dynamic HGTV that HGTV fans love to watch.
