Character Bio

Scarlett grew up on a farm near Natchez. Miss., never dreaming she'd become a performer like her uncle Deacon. She instead gravitated toward poetry, and her love of writing earned her a scholarship to college, where she met her boyfriend, Avery. She then followed Avery to Nashville so he could chase his musical dreams, which Scarlett fully supports—in fact, she's Avery's #1 fan.

Scarlett's loyal and sensitive, but she's also stronger than she looks. It's a strength she'll need, as she wrestles with her newly discovered musical gifts—a talent she didn't know she had and isn't sure she wants.
