The search for the next Taste of Country Riser is underway, and Yorktown's own Jessica Lynn is in it to win it. She's been a great friend to Kicks 105.5, but how much do you really know about Jessica Lynn the person?

The search for Taste of Country Risers has gone national as local Taste of Country markets across America have identified singers for a competition that will identify one rising star.

Radio stations in New York, Connecticut, Wyoming, Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and more had their listeners vote for their local favorites. Around here Jessica Lynn from Yorktown took the top spot, and now it's up to you to vote and decide who the first Hometown RISER will be.

Maybe you've seen her in one of her local concerts, or opening up for artist's like Phil Vassar, and Loretta Lynn at the Ridgefield Playhouse, but do you really 'know' Jessica Lynn.

A while back I got my first chance to sit down and talk to her and asked her to tell us five things that most people don't know about her.
