Stump graduated in 2011 with a degree in journalism and broadcasting. She wasted little time reaching a national television audience, competing on the second season of the hit show “The Voice.”
In February 2016, Stump was named a winner of the Hyundai and The Recording Academy’s fourth annual GRAMMY Amplifier program. She was chosen as the Country artist to watch from over 4000 entrants. She debuted as a featured performer at the GRAMMY Amplifier showcase at SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas.
A video for her single “Don’t Wanna Love Him” garnered over 750,000 views across all release channels in the first two weeks. Her single and video “Stay at Home Soldier” drew accolades across the board and was featured on 115 iHeartMedia Country station websites, syndicated “Taste of Country Nights” radio show and Slacker’s “Weekly Country Countdown.”
Such success has led to inclusion in several large country music festivals as well as opening slots for Tim McGraw, Train, Zac Brown, and Phillip Phillips. She was also the featured music performer at the 2015 Miss USA telecast.
Following the 2013 Moore, Oklahoma tornado, Stump worked with fellow Oklahoma and Nashville singer-songwriters to support the victims. She recorded a song called “Weather the Storm,” and donated all proceeds to the Red Cross.
In addition to her blossoming singing career, Stump became a No. 1 bestselling author though Amazon.com with her collaboration titled, “How they Sell Music: Lessons from Celebrities on Creating Your Own Success.”
