Born March 3, 1995, in Opelousas, La., Frey was raised to love horses and country music as much as life itself. Singing the National Anthem at rodeos became standard by the age of five, and by 15, she was named the Louisiana High School Rodeo Queen. A year later, she won the Louisiana state championship for goat-tying.
As the official soundtrack of the family road trips to rodeo competitions, the music of Lee Ann Womack, Wynonna Judd, Linda Ronstadt, Jessie Colter, Shania Twain, the Dixie Chicks, Pam Tillis and Patty Loveless played an integral role in shaping her ear for storytelling that stirs the soul. Discovering its power to purify emotions, music became Frey’s primary vehicle for interpreting her world when she started writing songs at 16. In her first decade in music, her grit, powerhouse vocals and authenticity have made her a favorite among Shania Twain and Texas’ most respected troubadours, including Randy Rogers and Cody Johnson. Following two Top 10’s on the Texas Regional Radio Report Chart and her first No. 1 “Rodeo Man,” she relocated to Nashville to pursue country music professionally and aligned with GRAMMY winner Paul Worley for her world debut in 2017. She released the acclaimed Rogers collaboration “Too Bad,” which was her second No. 1 on the Texas Regional Radio Report Charts. She was one of Twain’s protégés on the inaugural season of USA Network’s “Real Country” in 2018. Another Texas chart-topper “Ain’t Enough Beer” followed in November 2018. On the heel’s of her 3rd T3R #1 “One night in Tulsa,” Frey is currently promoting the acoustic version of the latter along with her latest uptempo, energetic, Leslie Satcher co-penned single, “Spur of The Moment”.
