Spensha Baker: "Merry Go 'Round"
Hometown: San Antonio, Texas
Resident: Boerne, Texas
Spensha grew up on military bases and knew very little outside of her church world. The first time she sang secular music was in 2004 on a singing competition show in which she came in second place and was signed to Interscope Records. At 12, Spensha released Interscope's first gospel record and toured the world. After her deal ended, Spensha moved to Nashville with her mother, where country music sparked her interest, but the pressure of the industry caused Spensha to move back to Texas. She now has her real estate license and is learning to love music again.
