About Callie Twisselman
Raised on her close-knit family’s seventh-generation grain and cattle ranch in Cholame, California, Twisselman grew up riding horses, team roping and competing in area rodeos. Her mom sang in a country band, and she names Dolly Parton, George Strait, Johnny Cash and Shania Twain as musical influences. She said she caught her own case of “stage fever” at the age of 10 and she’s been performing ever since.
