This is one 'newcomer' country singer's college yearbook photo. She attended the University of Missouri and, as you can tell by the tweed jacket, graduated in the mid '80s. Her music career wouldn't take off until she gave up a teaching career, however. Do you think you know who this is? 

This star didn't start off in country music. She became famous as a pop-rock singer before trying her hand at the Nashville sound rather recently. One piece of trivia about this star: She went to college with actor Brad Pitt. Click the button below to find out whose yearbook photo this is and to see more country yearbook photos.
