The American Idol judges had certainly seen nothing like Jeneve Mitchell before she came to audition for them on the season 15 premiere! This country girl and her family are so off the grid, they don’t even have electricity. The only time they really pump up the generator is to watch — you guessed it — American Idol!
If ever there was ever a truly country girl at heart on American Idol, Jeneve Rose is it. The 15-year-old singer has been performing old school country and western music since she debuted on stage at the Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering when she was just 12. She cut her first CD, Rocky Mountain Hillbilly Girl, just a year later.

In addition to her unique and engaging vocal style, Jeneve also plays a whopping nine instruments, including the cello and the harp! Her favorite thing to do besides performing any kind of music is to train and ride her trail pack horses, according to her profile on NationalGeographic.com.
Plus, she alsoAccording to her website bio, Jeneve arranged a version of “Cool Water” for her and her dad to perform at the Western Music Association, and they ended up winning Harmony Duo of the Year.
