Character Biography

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 then boyfriend Avery.

Much has changed since then, with Scarlett going on to date and break up with Avery’s pal Gunnar, and the young songbird launching a professional music career on country star Rayna Jaymes’ music label Highway 65. The pressures of fame and touring took a toll on Scarlett, who turned to pills to cope and had a very public meltdown on stage. She continues to write songs and appears to be easing her way back into the spotlight.
