Since being named runner-up on season 20 of ABC’s American Idol, HunterGirl’s authenticity, unwavering tenacity and heart of gold have positioned her as Country’s next star, earning praise she’d only dreamed of – like Idol judge and Country icon Luke Bryan praised her as the “new age Miranda Lambert” and his “favorite female Country voice.”


Moreover, American Songwriter celebrated that “her crooning vocals…made her one to watch in the Country scene,” People Magazine applauded her “incredible voice,” and CMT her “soaring vocals and superstar potential,” while Billboard solidified her inevitable superstar status, noting she “has wowed the Country music community since she stepped onto the American Idol stage,” and she’s currently “transcending from talented aspiring artist, to make her first steps toward the big leagues.”


More important than trophies, HunterGirl wins hearts.


Skyrocketing to No. 1 on iTunes All-Genre and Country charts with her earnest and deeply personal original track “Red Bird,” she’s performed on Live with Kelly & Ryan, appeared on Good Morning America, and was named a 2023 Artist to Watch by Music Mayhem.


Signed to 19 Records/BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records, HunterGirl, who is working toward her first-label project, just released her latest single “Ain’t About You,” written before she auditioned for Idol and received the first Platinum Ticket of the season.


“Coming off the show was a whirlwind,” she recalled. “That was a huge year of my life. I learned so much about myself as an artist and as a person. I vividly remember the flight home from New York after doing the talk shows after the finale, and I hadn’t been in Tennessee for four months. It was the moment where everything stopped for a second and you think, ‘Wow, this has all just happened.’”


People are drawn to her heart out, head up, boots on approach to everything she does. She’s a gutsy songwriter who works with veterans’ organizations where she uses music therapy to transform worrier’s stories into songs.


“That completely changed the way I view music,” she explained. “This is their song about their life and what they went through. I was so worried about words rhyming. Is this the right word, the right hook? And no, it was about what people were feeling. It took the technical stuff out of songwriting and left all the emotion.”


From Broadway to Hollywood, she went from playing honky tonks to a co-headlining tour with 2022 American Idol winner Noah Thompson and even having her own merch. In 2023, she is hitting the road with Luke Bryan, Parmalee, Josh Turner and Luke Combs for his pre-show tailgate stage. Recently, she’s been opening for Justin Moore, Tracy Lawrence, and Chase Matthews. In March, she opened for Lainey Wilson’s sold-out Nashville show at Brooklyn Bowl.


She started performing when she was three and writing songs when she was nine. In her early teens, she performed at venues across the United States, competed in singing competitions and won the 2014 Texaco Country Showdown. After graduating high school, she moved to Nashville and immediately started playing gigs. She’s shared the stage with Country superstars including Old Dominion, Florida Georgia Line, Kane Brown, Alan Jackson, Trace Adkins, Charlie Daniels, Sara Evans and more.


“I’ve wanted to sing since I was a kid,” she said. “It’s always been the dream and the goal. Everything that I’ve done has been leading up to this.”
