Kristen McNamara came from Napa Valley, California. She plays the piano and guitar. She started singing at a young age and has always had a love of country AND pop music. She grew up singing both but moved to Nashville to pursue primarily country music. Previously, she opened for great country acts such as Diamond Rio and Glen Campbell to name a few. She also performed all over California and worked with several legendary music producers.
Ultimately, Kristen became part of Season 4 of Nashville Star as one of the contestants. She was eliminated on Week 5.
After her time on Nashville Star, Kristen has decided to concentrate on a more Pop image. She feels that she may be more accepted and have more success in the pop arena but continues to write music in all genres, for herself as well as for others.
