Katie Noel’s Family and Early Life
Katie Noel McGallired was born in Marion, North Carolina on October 25, 1999. She was a small-town girl who loved driving her quads through the mud and shooting guns in the woods.
Not much is known about Katie Noel’s parents. She started playing her mom’s guitar, which was a Yamaha when she was young.
Her grandfather was Fred Houston Rumfelt. She affectionally called him “PawPaw.”
PawPaw ran the Country Roads Recording Studio in Marion for over 40 years. It had a massive influence on Katie’s life. At six-years-old, she used to bang on all the instruments at the studio.
When he passed away in December 2011, she asked her MawMaw for some of the guitars that were at the studio. While she split some of the guitars with her mom and sister, most are still Katie’s.
At 11-years-old, Katie Noel really got into YouTube. She looked over at her PawPaw’s guitar and decided to look up how to play like a professional. The first song she learned was “Sure Would Be Cool If You Did” by Blake Shelton. Then, “Wagon Wheel” by Darius Rucker.
