Capitol Records Nashville’s latest up and coming star is recording artist and star of hit Nickelodeon TV show ”iCarly,” Jennette McCurdy. Jennette’s first acting job at 8 years old was the Faith Hill music video for “The Way You Love Me” where she not only caught the acting bug but also realized her desire to pursue a career in music. And now, Jennette will show off her vocal chops when she opens for Faith Hill on July 23 and July 24 in California. Tickets are on sale at www.ticketmaster.com.
A fan of country music since being introduced to Patsy Cline by her grandmother at an early age, Jennette had begun writing songs and poetry at 7 years old.
“Faith Hill was a huge influence in my desire to pursue a career in country music,” explains Jennette. “To open for her is an honor and I’m so thrilled!”
Last summer Jennette signed to Capitol Nashville on her 17th Birthday and has been writing for and recording her debut album, The Story Of My Life, in Nashville over the last year. Produced by Paul Worley (Lady Antebellum), Jennette co-wrote nine of the 11 tracks on the album including the current single “Not That Far Away.”
