Kristen McNamara Photo

Kristen McNamara is a former contestant on Nashville Star. She appeared on the show in 2006 and made the final 10.

She's now an aspiring contestant on the eighth season of American Idol.

The blonde beauty originally auditioned in Louisville, Kentucky. She hails from Napa Valley, California... so she must know a thing or two about wine!

McNamara is 22 years old and has made it all the way through to the show's semifinal round. Congrats!
