Amanda Monger was born and raised in South Dakota. She attended University of South Dakota while studying pre-dentistry/psychology. After her junior year in college, she decided that the dental route wasn’t a great choice for herself, so she decided to move to Nashville and attempt to get into the music industry. With the dreams of landing a tour, she networked like crazy, which landed her the very first gig doing catering for Blake Shelton. From there, her career quickly went up. Months after her first tour ended, she was offered her first production assistant position with Jennifer Nettles. Quickly after that, she reunited with the Blake Shelton crew as the production assistant. After that tour ended, she jumped ship over to Miranda Lambert’s world, where she still is at today.
