Early life and education

Clampett is the daughter of professional golfer Bobby Clampett.[1][2] She grew up in Cary, North Carolina,[3][4] where she was active in community theatre productions.[5] She attended St. David's School, a private Episcopal preparatory school in Raleigh.

Clampett started out as a songwriter and, in 2004, she wrote the theme song for the television show From Fairways to Airways on the Golf Channel.[8][9] After graduating from college, Clampett moved to Los Angeles. She worked as a backing vocalist for Selena Gomez & the Scene for two years.[2][10][11] After working for Gomez she performed as a backing vocalist, keyboardist and guitarist for Victoria Justice.[12] Clampett also performed as a backing vocalist for Ariana Grande and Vince Gill and as an opening act for Dan + Shay, Love and Theft, Frankie Ballard, and Gloriana.[12][13] In 2010 Clampett competed on the ninth season of American Idol.[2] Clampett did not make it through to the show's semifinals. In 2011 she made it to the top twelve finalists on Bravo TV's Platinum Hit.[10] Later that year she headlined at Carmel Music Live with Jamie Davis.[8]

Clampett released her first two singles, Water Them Down and Sweet Tea in 3009 and 2010.[14] She released her first extended play, titled Stricly Business, in 2011.[15]

Clampett moved to Nashville in 2013 and joined a band which signed with Creative Artists Agency.
