Bio of Karen Fairchild
Karen Fairchild was born on September 28, 1969, in Gary, Indiana in the United States of America to parents of white American ethnicity. She had much of her growing up and spent her childhood days in and around Marietta, Georgia USA.
A somewhat lacuna exists on a verified educational background of Karen Fairchild. It is not known for certain which high school she attended as well as how large or otherwise her family was. However, it is known that for her college education, she graduated from Samford University in Birmingham Alabama. It was here she met her husband during their time as students in the college. We will write on him later in this article.
In the mid 90’s, Karen was a member of a Christian vocal group called ‘Truth’ as a performer and was featured as the lead singer in a few of their songs. She later moved from this group and formed a musical duo called KarenLeigh (a coinage of her name and musical partner) with Leigh Cappillino as her one-half.
In 1997, while studying at Samford University, Karen Fairchild met Kimberly Schlapman Roads prior to their moving to Nashville, Tennesse, before Jim Westbrook and Philip Sweet joined their music group in 1998. The group metamorphosed into the musical group called ‘Little Big Town’ in the year 2002 with the four of the former band members constituting the new band members.
The formation of the band was met with success as they were greeted with wide public acceptance and admiration following the launch of their self-titled album in 2002 at the CMA Awards at the time they were signed with Equity music. Their debut album “The Reason Why” rose to No. 1 on the US country music chart of that year. They had some of the biggest hit songs of that time on their first album like “Don’t Waste My Time” and “Everything Changes.” In the year 2006, you will probably remember the likes of “Good as Gone” and get dancing to the tunes of “A Little More You” which were hit songs from their second album The Road to Here.
“Pontoon” contained in their fifth studio album won the Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance in the 55th Grammy Awards ceremony. Karen Fairchild has won a lot of Awards in her career with her band, notable among which include Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Digital Song of the Year award for Girls Crush. They have also won the Vocal Group of the Year award in addition to New Vocal Duo/Group award.
Family- Married, Husband
Karen tied the knot with her college boyfriend and music partner Jimi Westbrook on the 31st day of May in 2006. The two lovers have been happily married since then. They have a son together named Elijah Dylan Westbrook who was born in 2010.
There are no rumours of turbulence in their marriage whether of a major or minor proportion which sadly, is becoming a regular occurrence in celebrity marriages today. We can safely assume that the union between Jimi Westbrook and Karen Fairchild is rosy and laced with a sweet firm grip of love in the inside just as it looks on the outside, and we sincerely hope it continues to be so.
Having had a successful running music career, it won’t be out of place to assume that she is wealthy as well from her singing career. Though her exact net worth is not known, Karen Fairchild has an estimated net worth put at over $3 million.
Body Stats – Height, Measurements
Karen is known for her long lean legs which seem to be a model for women desirous of looking hot in a bikini. The singer is naturally gifted with one of the sexiest legs ever seen in the music industry and she does well to take good care of them. Probably a well-planned exercise and massage routine keeps them so.
The celebrity musician, mother of one and wife to another celebrity musician stands decently tall for a woman at 5 feet 6 inches. This height carries a body weight of 54kg or 119 pounds. She wears dress size 4 of US and shoe size 9 US. Though the exact measurements of her female body members are unknown, one can generally see and agree for certain that she has a slim body build.
