Kristen McNamara – Louisville – 22 – Napa Valley, CA – H’wood group – H’wood “Because of You” – Top 36 “chair” singoff with Jenn Korbee – Semis Week 3 – AI Hollywood Video – AI Top 36
Kristen was entirely unseen until the infamous Hollywood group rounds, where she became part of the mega-dramz that was Team Compromise, the group that included fellow Top 36er Nate Marshall and Nancy Wilson (I don’t think Nancy and Kristen will be keeping in touch).
Kristen already has tons of show business experience. She was a previous Star Search and Nashville Star contestant. ( Her music ? Not very country, although she does yodel) She boasts a 4 octave range and has been a regular National Anthem singer at 49er games. Her bio says she working/writing with Chris Trevett, (Backstreet Boys, NSync, Britney Spears, Aaron Carter) finishing an indie record. Her Nashville Star profile mentions that she’s opened for Lonestar, Collin Raye, Diamond Rio, Montgomery Gentry, Travis Tritt, Kenny Chesney, Kevin Sharp, and Glen Campbell. – With John Stewart in the studio: Video.
