Life and career:
Stewart was born August 6, 1968, in Louisville, Mississippi. She first sang in public at age six in her church. Five years later, she attended a Tent Show at the Nashville Fan Fair, where she gave her first country performance. By 1987, Stewart had moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where she won the Roy Acuff scholarship at Belmont University and found work as a studio singer.
While performing at a wedding reception in 1991, Stewart was noticed by Mark Thompson, Wynonna Judd's bandleader, who asked Stewart to sing demos for him. After recording the demos, Stewart signed to a recording contract with BNA Entertainment (now known as BNA Records), releasing her debut single "Somebody's in Love" in late 1992. This song was the first of three singles from her self-titled debut album, followed by "Under the Light of the Texaco" (which failed to chart) and "Drive Time". Also included on the album was a cover of Jeannie Seely's 1966 single "Don't Touch Me".
In addition to promoting her album on radio tours, Stewart hosted the nationally syncdicated Entertainment News show #1 Country. She also made appearances on The Nashville Network, hosting their programs Yesteryear and This Week in Country Music. She continued to tour throughout the 1990s, although she eventually parted from BNA. She also made an appearance in the 2001 film Jericho, as well as a cameo appearance in the music video for Billy Gilman's 2001 single "Oklahoma". Stewart also co-wrote "Sky Full of Angels", recorded by Reba McEntire.
Stewart married former Little Texas vocalist Brady Seals in 2002, shortly before Seals founded another band called Hot Apple Pie. The couple has a son, born September 15, 2008.
