Adding to the excitement, the New Mexico native will perform the National Anthem for the Albuquerque Public Schools virtual graduation ceremony on May 13, on the APS Graduation website and YouTube. Other guests include Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family). 

Last month, Stern and her family were inspired during the COVID-19 quarantine after watching Netflix’s Tiger King to have a themed dinner dressed as the cast. Their now viral TikTok, which has over 10 million views, caught the eyes of BuzzFeed, New York Post, INSIDER, Barstool Sports and more.

Stern is an artist who creates a wheelhouse all her own. With her Wild West roots in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Stern’s dynamic vocals, brazen songwriting, and classic country influences showcase both her true authenticity and raw talent. Her unapologetic honesty is already taking her incredible places. After being chosen as a vocalist to attend the GRAMMY Foundation’s GRAMMY Camp Los Angeles (2011) and Nashville (2012), Stern moved to Nashville to write and record full time. She released her debut EP MIDNIGHT BANDITS in 2016 which displayed her “dynamic vocals and relatable songwriting” (The Daily Country). The EP featured breakout single “Runaways,” an ode to her Route 66 roots. In 2018, she was selected to be a part of the CMT Artists Discovery Program; off the back of that, Stern premiered the music video for her single ‘Fingers Crossed’, which charted #1 on CMT’s Twelve Pack Countdown for three weeks in a row. Based on a public vote, she was selected to join the Brantley Gilbert Cruise with such luminaries as Luke Combs, Michael Ray, and Brantley Gilbert. Stage Right Secrets named her “one of our favorite breakthrough artists” and The New Nine called her “relatable, emotional, and vulnerable.”
