The woman in Chris Young’s “Losing Sleep” video

This morning I’ve been researching Chris Young’s music video “Losing Sleep,” more specifically, the cast of the video. In this case, it’s Chris Young as Chris Young and a mystery woman as the lead actress (to find out who it is, scroll to the bottom).

Through various channels, I wasn’t able to find out who she is so then I tried looking up modeling agencies here in Nashville (where the video was shot).

Funny thing happened, I saw a few people I know, guys and girls. Some I’ve been to church with, some I’ve been to lunch with.

But then I stumbled upon Danielle M., who you might recognize from The Bachelor!

Her occupation on the show’s website lists “Neonatal Nurse” but that must just be her day job. She’s also a model! You can find more about her on this modeling website. I don’t know if she’s dating Wells (another Bach contestant who lives in Nashville) so no juicy details there. I do know one thing for sure: She’s not the woman in Chris Young’s video.

That woman is…drum roll, please… Kiersten Dolbec!

Per the comments below from Kiersten’s mom, here’s a bit of info y’all will appreciate:
She was born in Folsom, Ca in 1991, grew up in Saratoga Ca, and now lives in Dallas TX. She is a model with Kim Dawson and Wilhemina Models. She has been studying improv at 2nd City in Chicago (home of the Saturday night live alumni) and has started her career in acting this past year. She was training for the Olympics in High Jump and had a full ride scholarship to UC Santa Barbara for Vollyball.

  1. Kiersten Dolbec is my daughter. She was born in Folsom, Ca in 1991, grew up in Saratoga Ca, and now lives in Dallas TX. She is a model with Kim Dawson and Wilhemina Models. She has been studying improv at 2nd City in Chicago (home of the Saturday night live alumni) and has started her career in acting this past year. She was training for the Olympics in High Jump and had a full ride scholarship to UC Santa Barbara for Vollyball.

    • Hi! Thank you so much for checking out my blog. It seems like fans of Chris are becoming fans of Kiersten, too, so thanks for passing along this info. I have a feeling they’ll get a kick out of finding out a little bit more history of Kiersten!

      • Thanks Ben

        Kier is a great girl. She has an incredible work ethic and loves life. It’s in her genes as she is very athletic and not afraid to try new things. She’s recently climbed a glazier in Iceland, hiked in Australia, surfed in Cabo, and skied in Aspen. Though she is a California girl (like me) she has a heart as big as Texas. She never talks bad about anyone, is loving and kind, and has recently run two charity events to help others. The first one was called Friscovania in Frisco, tx. One of the industry make up artists, who was very well-known in the modeling world, suddenly died of cancer within three months and left behind her three-year-old little boy. She had no family and an aging grandfather so Kiersten arranged a fashion show at Halloween and got 52 top runway models to come in and give their time along with designers to put the show on and all the proceeds went to this young boys fund. It was a huge success. Then after the recent Houston hurricane and flooding she organized another event to raise money for the residents in the lower income areas.

        She has quite a portfolio of work behind her including Neiman Marcus “The book”, Nordstrom, JCPenney’s, DSW shoes, Mary Kay commercials, luchese boots, The Nike girl, the element, etc.. she models a lot in Columbia Peru and Chile and other international destinations. Early on she traveled with Tim Gunn (americas next model, biggest loser consultant) around the country for fashion shows.

        Kier has a blog called “suddenly no sugar” where she talks about eating sugar free and she’s got an Instagram account called suddenly puppies

        You know as a mother I have three very beautiful talented daughters and when I look at what Kiersten’s doing with her life at the age of 26 I can’t wait to see what her future holds because she simply amazes me on a daily basis. What a blessing to be able to call her my daughter and I still stand in awe when I see her work.

        As for Chris Young. He’s a good man. He’s a Christian, a patriot, and I think what you see is what you get. How refreshing in the world of entertainment. Plus he is damn talented.

      • She sounds pretty incredible! I’m sure you are so proud. I’m going to check out her blog because I love the idea of eating healthy. She’s obviously passionate about a lot of things. What does she love most professionally? For instance, would she want to go into acting full time, charity work full time, or is she most fulfilled by excelling in multiple areas?
