ALL-NEW AUDITION EPISODE IN TOP-RATED SUMMER SERIES

Chloe Nichole Channell, the youngest of 3 children and the only girl, was born December 27, 2001 in Pensacola, Florida to Jeff and Kim Channell. Being the only girl in the family, Chloe learned quickly to not only play rough and tough, but also how to wrap even the most hardened of hearts around her tiny finger. Chloe has a way with a person that makes even strangers feel as though they have known her for years, a gift that many yearn to attain; however, Chloe pulls it off effortlessly!
It became apparent Chloe was going to be a great singer when she started singing as soon as she could form words. Chloe took the stage for the first time at the age of six, and she knew right away that it was where she wanted to be. In February of 2009, at the age of seven, Chloe became a full-time member of The Sawmill Band at the Chumuckla Farmer’s Opry.
At the age of eight, Chloe went into Coleman Studios in Navarre, Florida, with a native Nashville band, to record her first self-titled CD. In addition to her performance schedule, Chloe has had a great year as a Student/Athlete. She recently started guitar lessons, which like her singing, has come naturally to her. With only two months of lessons beneath her belt, she has already begun to perform with her guitar. Her love of music is apparent each time she steps out on stage.
Chloe has performed in over 300 shows all across Northwest Florida, Southern Alabama, and Georgia, opening for such stars as: Tracy Bird, Rodney Adkins, Little Big Town, Craig Morgan, Ronnie McDowell, Gene Watson, John Conlee, and the “Queen of Bluegrass” Rhonda Vincent. Chloe has become somewhat of a local sensation with several segments on the local news stations in Pensacola, Florida and with articles in the local paper. Her following around the area is impressive for someone so young!
The two artists that have inspired Chloe the most are Loretta Lynn and Martina McBride. She admires Loretta Lynn’s ability to tell a story through her music. With her “small frame and big voice,” Chloe likes to compare herself with her all-time favorite Martina McBride. Chloe Channell is a little fireball with a great personality and a driving passion to perform for people everywhere.
