Kayla isn't just an incredibly talented musician, she is also a registered nurse! She says, "I decided when I moved to Nashville, I'd be kind of smart about the whole thing and have a Plan B." Ultimately if the music career doesn't work out (I don't see that happening), that she wants to work in a neonatal ICU. This desire came from her own life experience. She and her twin brother Ryan were both premies. She weighed only 3 pounds 9 ounces when born.
Kayla Calabrese is currently being represented by renowned music producer Kent Wells who has worked with both Dolly Parton and Neal McCoy.
