Katrina made her onstage debut at age 9, wowing the crowd at a county 4-H club talent show with her rendition of Dolly Parton's 1990 hit "White Limozeen." It was no fluke - in the decade since, she's been winning over one crowd after another, earning fans like Vince Gill and honors like the Oklahoma Opry's 2001 Performer of the Year award. After graduating from high school early, she made her way to Nashville in 2002, where record labels were courting her within a year. She signed on with Universal South - home to one of her favorite singers, Joe Nichols - and the company is set to release her 12-song debut album this fall.
