As a young girl growing up in Scotts Hill, Tennessee, Whitney Duncan developed a passion for music early on. Her love for performing at local festivals, churches, and talent shows soon blossomed into a publishing deal with Big Picture and a record deal with Capitol Records at age of 17. Finding great success in songwriting, Whitney released a duet with superstar Kenny Rogers, giving way to her career as a recording artist. Her breakout single, “When I Said I Would”, released by industry-giant Warner Brothers, was named song of the week after being widely downloaded. Since then, Whitney has racked up 20 million career streams, working with accomplished producers such as Mark Bright, and current producer Michael Carter. She was recently (2018) named a part of the prestigious CMT’s Next Women of Country. The multi-talented Duncan also found success in appearing on the 23rd season of Survivor and the 25th season of The Amazing Race. She just released her new EP, I’m The Fire, to all music platforms.
