“I am so honored to get to continue my journey with this new Opry chapter. I am forever grateful for their foundation to country music, the fact that I have their support is more than I could ever wish for. I am pinching myself that I am getting to join this year’s class of talented people, many of whom I have been a fan of for the last few years.”
Originally from Raleigh, NC, Priscilla moved to Nashville to pursue music shortly after high school. In Nashville, the affable, hardworking, student of life worked multiple jobs to make ends meet, then a chance encounter with her idol – Taylor Swift – was the sign she needed to dive all the way in on her music. Priscilla is a seasoned performer, sharing the stage and opening for many artists including John Pardi, Rodney Atkins, Dierks Bentley, Kelsea Ballerini and more. She is currently on tour with Ashley McBryde.
