Bratton hails from Johnson County, Tennessee, where her family has a nursery and landscaping business, and she graduated from Tennessee Tech University with a double major in agricultural education and communications. Amy Beckham is from Cookeville, Tennessee where she grew up visiting her uncle's cattle farm. She graduated from UT Knoxville with a degree in food and agricultural business and a minor in agricultural communications.
