Biography

daughter of a Tumbleweed 


Anna was born in Illinois, but moved around often as a kid until her family found roots in Arkansas in 2002. She has loved singing since she was a little girl and vividly remembers her parents smiling and singing Bobby McGee in the living room while her daddy played guitar.
She sang in church with her momma and had lots of car jam sessions with her, listening to John Denver and The Eagles on 8-Track. Her first guitar was a pawn shop Abilene, gifted to her by her daddy with a set of strings in 2007.

Her biggest influences include: Bill Scranton, Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, John Denver, Carly Pearce, Pistol Annies, Johnny Cash, Ashley McBryde, Merle Haggard, Tammy Cochran, Loretta Lynn, Kitty Wells, SHeDaisy, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Sr. & The Dixie Chicks.

She is a 2018, 2019, 2020 & 2021 Arkansas Country Music Award Nominee. She won Duo of the Year with Adam Cunningham at the 2020 ACMA's for their duet "Thinkin Bout You" and is nominated for 2021 Album of the Year for her album "Rain and Whiskey", released in January of 2020.
Her goals are to continue to dive deeper in to songwriting, to hone her craft, to do more travelling gigs and to release an acoustic work tape album/EP in 2021. 
Anna recently added Joey Evans as her guitar player, so if you're looking for a country solo/duo acoustic act, she's your girl!

This girl will always chase her dreams.
