Rachel Proctor was born in Charleston, West Virginia and started singing at the age of six. Rachel traveled all over the country to participate in talent competitions including the hit TV show “Star Search” in 1989. She moved to Nashville at the age of eighteen to become the youngest staff writer ever signed to Warner-Chappell Music. After singing background vocals for Blake Shelton, Rachel got a recording contract of her own with the RCA Music Group. In July of 2004 her album "Where I Belong" debuted at #8 on the Billboard Country Album Charts. The record produced two top twenty singles, "Days Like This" and "Me and Emily". The latter, a song about domestic abuse, became an anthem for abused women across the world and earned praise from President Bush, Senator Kerry, and Attorney General Ashcroft. Rachel is a staff writer at Full Circle Music and has written songs for Tanya Tucker, Nashville Star winner Erika Jo, Kenny Loggins (a duet Kenny sings with Rachel), Katrina Elam, Blake Shelton and one of Martina McBride's greatest hits, "Where Would You Be."
