Caitlyn Ochsner was raised on a ranch along the South Platte River near the small town of Kersey, Colorado – an agricultural community where cattle outnumber people. Like many farm and ranch kids, Caitlyn grew up with many responsibilities and daily chores, but that didn’t keep her from practicing her craft. She could be heard singing her favorite songs by artists like Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood, LeAnn Rimes, Shania Twain and Miranda Lambert as she was gathering cows, feeding calves or driving the chore truck. She was often invited to sing the National Anthem at livestock shows and rodeos, and at the age of 16, had the opportunity to sing the National Anthem for 20,000 rodeo fans at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.
In 2016, Caitlyn moved to Nashville to study music at Belmont University. Over the last several years, Caitlyn has developed her skills as a singer/songwriter and just released her debut EP entitled “Home” – which blends her rich, powerful voice with traditional country instruments like the fiddle and pedal steel into a sound that is pure country. While she is regularly praised for her vocal range, high-energy performances, and ability to easily transition from emotional ballads to up-tempo songs that bring people to the dance floor, it’s her authenticity as a person and an artist that captivates audiences and leaves a lasting impression. Her title song “Home” epitomizes the emotion and transparency she brings to her songwriting and signals her commitment to reviving traditional country music – a genre known for using strings and a good story to move and entertain audiences.
