In 2014 she competed in and won the National Grand Prize in the historic Texaco Country Showdown, winning the $100,000 grand prize on a nationally televised program hosted by Leann Rimes from the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN.

This led her to the attention of Grammy winning producer Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars, Holly Williams), with whom she recorded her 2014 album “I Believe”, which debuted at the #13 spot on iTunes, marking the first time in history for an independent female artist to debut in the top 20.


In the past decade Crystal has performed all across the US and Europe, performing at historic venues such as the Bluebird Cafe and the Ryman Auditorium, as well as performing with and opening for artists such as Martina McBride, Joe Ely, Deana Carter, Suzy Boggus, Sam Baker, Neal McCoy, LeAnn Rimes, and many more.

Her latest album,The Other Side,was produced by Grammy winner McKenzie Smith (Midlake, Sarah Jaffe) and was released on May 20. Crystal is setting up for a tour across the US and UK in 2017




I really enjoy Crystals talent and her vocals are outstanding! I met her on Twitter, and we seemed to connect right away, she has a gift that she’s willing to share with the world, and if the world opens it’s eyes, they will see that she is beautiful inside and out. It would do my heart proud to one day meet this outstanding artist in person, so that I can tell her, “Job well done!”
