Napa Valley, California native got started singing as soon as she "could make noise" - at age 11 she knew she wanted to be a BIG star. Kristen doesn't mince words when it comes to her goals, saying she'd love to be the biggest-selling artist ever. She would love to have so much success that she could paint on the side and own a little shop on the beach selling expensive panties and "soap things" while her boyfriend sells hot dogs down the road on a bike. That said, she would also love just to have a family someday when she's 50 and perhaps do some in-home design.
Kristen also plays piano and guitar, as well as a little drums and one song on the flute. Her goal is to learn a little of every instrument. Kristen's dream duet would be with either Def Leppard or Pink Floyd, but realistically, she'd be fine with jumping on stage with Brian Adams or Big & Rich. Kristen sums herself up as friendly and outgoing.
