A young singer-songwriter with many miles under her belt, Samantha Crain studied English literature at Oklahoma Baptist University before enrolling in a songwriting retreat. There, she honed her skills as a storyteller and decided to drop out of school and perform full-time. The Oklahoma native has been touring relentlessly ever since.
