She was one of the featured artists in Troubadour, TX, a television show documenting her rising career as a Texas country singer/songwriter.
In 2013, Harris began working on material for a second full-length album and toured with fellow Troubadour, TX star Zane Williams throughout the state. Then in March, 2019, she released a new self titled EP.
Harris died on September 4, 2019, when her car collided with another near Taos, New Mexico. She was 30 years old. She is survived by her daughter. Taos County Sheriff’s Office claimed that Harris caused the accident. The other fatality of the crash was a teenager, Maria Elena Cruz, whose vehicle Harris hit head-on.
