New Tonight 8/7c. Catch up on the season premiere online.
Katie was born and raised in Powhatan Point, Ohio and currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee. She fell in love with music after a performance at a Christmas show when she was 12 years old, and Katie credits her mother with harvesting her singing voice. After graduating college and nursing school, Katie felt like she had abandoned her passion for singing, so she began writing music after her shifts in the Intensive Care Unit. As much as she loves being a nurse, Katie would be thrilled if her appearance on "The Winner Is" catapulted her into music career.
