At just five years old, Jordyn had her first solo in a Christmas play.  After that, she started singing in church, talent shows, festivals, and fairs.  Jordyn remembers back to the day she wrote her first song.  Her mom had left to go to the grocery store and by the time she returned, Jordyn was ready to sing it for her. 

She eventually picked up guitar and considers it her main instrument now but she also dabbles in piano.  When Jordyn was an impatient freshman in high school, she presented a plan to her parents to graduate one year early.  She went on to take extra classes during the school year and summer and graduated with special honors in 2009 with the class ahead of her.
Jordyn has had the honor of opening concerts for Loretta Lynn, Crystal Gayle, Jake Owen, Eric Church, Emerson Drive, Ashton Shephard, Colt Ford and many more. 
You can also look for her in Jason Aldean's music video for his hit song "Dirt Road Anthem".
