This may be one of the easiest country music yearbook photos to identify, as it was taken less than eight years ago. The starlet in question quickly moved on from her Nashville area high school to sign a recording contract and form the hottest group in Music City. She has a famous mother and recently married her band’s touring drummer.
The road of the outlaw is paved with sharp stones, but for fans of country music’s bad boys (and bad girls) it’s a satisfying path to follow.
