This 22-year-old “Rocky Mountain Hillbilly Girl” grew up off the grid in the Elk Wilderness of Colorado. At age 15, she was a top 14 finalist on the farewell season of American Idol, which 200,000 hopefuls had auditioned for. She recorded and released her first professional EP in Nashville, including several songs from her American Idol journey as well as several originals. One of the songs on this album featured her friends Too Slim and Ranger Doug from Riders in the Sky, the Grand Ole Opry’s signature cowboy band, and achieved the #1 most played song on the Western Music Charts. She plays an eclectic array of instruments as well as genres of music. She has won a variety of awards, including Best Harmony Duo with her dad in 2013 with her arrangement of Cool Water, the Western Music Association’s 2016 Crescendo Award for best new artist, and the 2018 Youth Yodeler of the Year. She has opened for chart-toppers like Scotty McCreery, Emerson Drive, and Darryl Worley, as well as for the WMA’s many time winner of the Entertainer of the Year Award Dave Stamey. When not on stage, Jeneve trains and packs her horses.
