Gracee Shriver was born in Owasso, Oklahoma and grew up playing tennis and singing. She sang at her local church and at a BBQ restaurant for 10 years, starting when she was just 9 years old. At 16, Shriver the went on to the hit NBC show “The Voice” and made it to the top 16! Gracee learned so much from The Voice and reflects on her journey “going from then to now, you continually have to work hard and go hard because people are always going to be better than you”. Shriver always thought of a career in country music and always looked up to all women in country (Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, and Miranda Lambert).
Her parents had no doubts that she could make it and help her as much as they can. Shriver describers her sound as “Pop Country with an old school voice” and loves writing breakup songs. Her favorite song is Fancy by Reba and even saw her perform it at the Grand Ole Opry, a venue she cannot wait to play one day! Shriver has worked with Ben Crosser, Dan Frizsell (Jason Aldean and Lee Brice), Buddy Owens (Shane McAnally and Eric Paslay), and Galen Griffin (Luke Bryan and Joe Diffie) on her music. The Oklahoman is currently pursuing a degree in Music Business at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, a place she has visited many times since she was 9 years old.
