Jordan Kirkdorffer vs. WILKES: "Nobody to Blame"
Hometown: New Paris, Indiana
Resident: Franklin, Tennessee
Jordan grew up in a tight-knit farming community and got his musical start in church. He was on track to pursue music as a career with an acceptance into the vocal program at Belmont University in Nashville. Upon arrival, reality hit hard when he felt unprepared and promptly shut down musically. A degree switch led Jordan to work as an accountant after graduation but left him questioning if this is what he really wanted to do. Now, he's taking baby steps back into music by writing, singing in church and posting YouTube videos.
