The daughter of Tommy Clayton, who toured with the group Sons of the Purple Sage with the Lone Ranger, BethAnne has inherited quite the genes from her very talented father. She began singing four part harmonies with her sisters and parents at the age of four and by fourteen there was a new addition - a piano.

Self-taught, BethAnne began writing songs and performing at charity events, telethons and talent shows, as well as singing with her family in church. She was soon discovered by WYNY, the country radio station in New York, and she became their featured artist, performing with such acts as Tracy Byrd, Ty Herndon, Chris LeDoux and Marty Stuart to name just a few.

BethAnne currently works in conjunction with the new country station in the Northeast, THUNDER 106.3 where she and her band works with their promotion team at events all around the area. She has most recently opened up for the talented Jake Owen and is planning lots more in the future.

BethAnne travels from her native New Jersey to Nashville, Tennessee, committed to achieving her life-long dream of being a performer and songwriter. Following in the footsteps of people like Trisha Yearwood, she began singing demos for the top songwriters and publishing companies in town, while continuing to write her own songs and create her own unique style. She travels back and forth between Nashville and New Jersey, continually singing demos for top producers as well as putting on a great show for all audiences.


Queen Of Hearts

A natural talent, BethAnne can play just about any instrument that you hand her. But it's her love of singing that keeps her actively performing in the studios and out on the stage! She most often performs for thousands annually, going nationwide with her own band performing an energetic blend of original Country and Rock music. Because of her love of harmonies, BethAnne is also one of four girls who make up the Nashville based group “Queen of Hearts”. Queen of Hearts is the female “Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young” and this group keeps her musically satisfied for sure! She also tours annually with "Holiday Express", a non-profit organization on the Jersey Shore, performing a Christmas show for the less fortunate throughout the holiday season.
BethAnne’s son is also carrying on the tradition of many generations of talent and is quite the lefty bass player, as well as a stylish singer and has even recorded an original song at the age of 6! Paul Thomas has joined her on stage every chance he gets and has quite a little resume at such a young age. Much more to come from him!
