During her time in the military, she recorded her first full length studio album, "No Pony Ride". She scraped enough funds to afford the studio fees for the album by selling her horse and horse trailer, in addition to saving her military pay.
In 2015, Presley was discharged from active duty. It was then that she pursued music full time, accomplishing a performance at the Grand Ole Opry and televised performance of "Heartbreak Hotel' by Elvis Presley on American Idol. Luke Bryan was quoted as saying , "I think Elvis would be proud".
In 2017, Presley along with Nashville Star finalist, KK Bodiford, formed the Texas-Country duo, Highway Sisters. Together, they have performed on CBS and Fox morning shows, live terrestrial radio, and press outlets nationwide. Highway Sisters have performed with artists such as Stoney Larue, Bri Bagwell, Craig Campbell, Andrew Sevener, Brandon Rhyder, Cory Morrow, and many more, and continue to tour North America full time.
