Cam

Since releasing her major label debut album in 2015, Cam has quickly become that rarest of success stories by earning both commercial and critical success. Born in California, she became involved in music first as a songwriter, composing songs for other artists that include Miley Cyrus, before moving to Nashville to take a shot at country stardom. She released her debut major label EP, <i>Welcome to Cam Country</i>, in 2015, and though her first single, "My Mistake," didn't fare too well at radio, its follow-up, the haunting acoustic ballad "Burning House," caught on after receiving exposure on the Bobby Bones Show, eventually making it all the way to No. 1. She released her major label debut album, <i>Untamed</i>, in 2015, and "Burning House" earned her a Grammy nomination.
