Born in Jacksonville, N.C., the daughter of a U.S. Marine, Peck grew up in Coshocton, Ohio, where the family had strong musical roots. Her mother's side of the family traveled and sang in churches. Her father's parents and grandparents were steeped in country music, playing dances in the area. Peck could sing before she could talk and by the time she was three, she would sit on a counter banging on pots and pans as her extended family played country music. The first song she learned to sing was Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues," a song that has been part of her live show to this day.
After several years on the bar and festival circuit Peck made the decision to chase the dream and make the jump to Nashville. She quickly took a Nashville job waiting tables and spent the rest of her time working on her songwriting. She has since enjoyed success on country radio and has opened show for some of the biggest names in the business including Toby Keith.
"Everything comes down to being real," she says. "Every song I do reflects something I've been through or something I've felt. My songs are my journals. Whatever I feel at the moment, whatever emotion I'm going through, is what I write about. When it's time to sing those songs, whether it's on stage or in the studio, those feelings are right there."
