Tracy’s a southern gal. Born in Gaffney, South Carolina. She grew up taking vocal lessons as a child with the hopes and aspirations of becoming a singer/entertainer. Her influences growing up were Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Dottie West, Skeeter Davis, the Judd’s, Waylon Jennings, and Charlie Daniels – just to name a few.
