Cam, a short name with a big voice, has been creating quite the buzz in country music. She's signed to Arista Nashville (with label mates Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood) and is already opening shows for Jake Owen, Brantley Gilbert and Big & Rich. Her bright, fresh approach to songwriting brings a cool new sound to country music. It's called "Cam Country." Here are seven reasons why we love this new country star and you will too:
7. Cam Is Secretly a Princess.
Do you know of any other country music singer who has this kind of royal grace while rocking yellow sunglasses? Exactly.
6. Miley Cyrus Recorded Cam's Song "Maybe You're Right" for 2013's Bangerz CD.
Although Miley didn't release it as single, the track still made the album, which sold two million copies.
5. Her Favorite Color Is Yellow.
You will often spot her wearing yellow because she is beautiful and full of sunshine.
4. She Performed on the Grand Ole Opry, twice!
Her debut at the "Show That Made Country Music Famous" on May 29, 2015, was quickly followed by an encore appearance less than three weeks later.
3. She Has Been Featured on The Bobby Bones Show.
Bobby Bones, the host of the nationally syndicated The Bobby Bones Show, has been an outspoken supporter of Cam. Her multiple performances on the show have launched her music through the radio and into our hearts. Notably, she covered "Uptown Funk" with the revised lyric, "Too hot, hot Cam."
