Her life, so far, includes, relocating with her family to Nashville in 1997 and an ensuing appearance by The Wilkinsons at a Nashville nightclub that led to competitive bidding by seven top record labels to immediately sign the fledgling act. Also charting "26 Cents" as a top single from their first album and touring extensively, appearing on stage and television and garnering a loyal and devoted legion of fans in the process.
