Biography and early life

Carly Cristyne Slusser was born in Kentucky, USA. She grew up with her parents and sister, who supported her dream of becoming a country music star and told her to always dream big.

She grew up listening to country music icons like Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, and Patsy Cline, and as a kid, she loved to sing in front of her family. Her talents were noticed immediately, and her grandparents encouraged her to dive deeper into music.

When she was 11 years old, she started to perform with a bluegrass band and sang in churches and tent revival shows. Also, as a teenager, she sang at a boy's prison.
