The daughter of singer-songwriter Kathy Wright, Amanda grew up watching her mother perform. Kathy, an original member of the “Dean Martin Golddiggers,” starred on the crooner’s NBC television program “The Dean Martin Show” when she was 18. Kathy also traveled the globe singing with Bob Hope and his USO-sponsored Christmas shows and bestowed her love for music on her daughter.
Amanda’s mother brought her to a show when she was just one week old and put her in a bassinet on stage while she performed. At age two, Amanda joined her mom each night to sing. Soon Amanda began performing in church and singing original songs her mom wrote. By the time she was 14, Amanda was singing professionally.
Inspired by dynamic female singers including Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Dawn Sears and newest Country Music Hall of Famers The Judds, Amanda says she was born into music and country music is her calling.
“I’ve always been drawn to singers that had a lot of power behind them and Wynonna Judd was that for me,” Amanda says. “She has this grit to her voice that I love, and a level of conviction when singing that you felt.”
