Raised just south of Atlanta, Georgia, on Lake Spivey, MaryAnn attended school at Woodward Academy. Upon graduation, she followed her older brother to the University of Mississippi to begin her college career. While at Ole Miss, MaryAnn received word that she would be granted a wish by the Make A Wish Foundation, due to a life-threatening illness she had survived 4 years prior. Her wish was to attend the CMT Music Awards, which happened to be at Belmont University. The following semester, she transferred to Belmont to pursue a degree in Music Business. While in school at Belmont, MaryAnn interned at The Block Agency, ASCAP, Ansel Davis and Associates, as well as worked to launch the career of the Florida Georgia Line. Since graduation in December of 2010, she has been working at Cal IV Entertainment until recently accepting a new position at Razor & Tie Music Publishing. MaryAnn is currently Razor and Tie's Coordinator of Publishing Administration.
