Darling and Durango

Darling and Durango

Durango has tapped singer-songwriter Sarah Darling to lend her voice in a different way than usual; the longtime Durango brand ambassador has designed a capsule collection of western fashion boots for the iconic brand. In time for Holiday 2014, Durango will add two distinct styles, designed by Sarah, to its “Crush” line of footwear.

The 31-year-old Iowa native has since found success with her music and as a contestant on ABC’s new singing competition “Rising Star.” But without her faith in God, Darling told FOX411 she would be nowhere.

“Faith has always been the center of what I do,” Darling said. “Singing, life, everything, it gets me through and keeps me grounded.”

Darling had a religious upbringing, but it wasn’t until later in life that she began to develop her own relationship with God.

“Sometimes when you grow up with [faith] and you hear it, you don’t realize what it means,” she said. “When you get older and you really understand what it means to have faith, that’s when you truly grow as a person.”
