Kata has been singing since she could talk. At age two, she begged her father to pay a $50 entrance fee for a beauty pageant. She ended up winning that pageant, and started singing at oprys and fairs around Oklahoma, even performing at the Rodeo Opry with Blake Shelton. When she was 13, Kata was urged by a young Kacey Musgraves to enter the National Yodeling Competition and ended up winning the crown for the next five years. She met her now ex-husband when she was 18 years old, and together they performed at Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede and the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show. After her marriage fell apart, she met her current girlfriend, Savanna. The couple recently moved to Nashville, where they work at the Wild Beaver Saloon.
