Karen Fairchild was born in Indiana and raised in Marietta, Georgia. Like the other members of LBT, Karen grew up singing in church. However it wasn't until she attended Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama that she started to get serious about becoming a singer. It was there that she first met Kimberly Roads and the two of them joined a singing group. She had friends in Nashville that convinced her to move there in 1994 to sing on demo tapes. She performed in a band that played at corporate conventions. She also worked as a booking agent, which is where she learned the music business. Karen married Jimi Westbrook on May 31, 2006.
