American Idol season 20 finalist and country singer HunterGirl released her single, «Red Bird» on May 13, and she revealed the backstory behind the song that inspired her to write it.
Twenty-three-year-old HunterGirl is originally from Gruetli-Laager, Tennessee. Before her American Idol experience, she was a music therapist who worked with veterans to turn their war experiences into songs.
HunterGirl's Nashville audition impressed the judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan so much that they awarded her one of the three platinum tickets of the season.
HunterGirl has since sailed through the competition with her authentic country performances, including her original song, «Heartbreak Down,» which climbed the music charts after she sang it on the Top 20 episode of the show.Read more on screenrant.com
