A lifetime lover of all things entertainment, Bethany stepped onto the stage, discovering her passion for dance and stage performance, at the early age of four. Throughout her childhood and into her adult life, dance was her primary focus, and shortly after college earned a spot in the NFL as a Tennessee Titans Cheerleader. During this time, she had the honor of cheering on the field at Super Bowl XXXIV and performed in the opening show with country music super star Travis Tritt.
Her love for the stage led her into the world of beauty pageants, and in 2012 she was crowned Mrs. Tennessee America and competed at Mrs. America later that year, placing in the top six. Bethany has modeled for such national brands as Carol Wior swimwear, Epiphone Guitar, and Wrangler Jeans, and has appeared on television and in runway fashion shows for top Nashville boutiques, as well as designer to prominent rock and roll and country music stars, Manuel Cuevas.
Women Fitness joins the beautiful Bethany Sharp on her journey to stardom, motherhood and lots more!
With dance as your primary focus in childhood, and earning a spot in the NFL as a Tennessee Titans Cheerleader. There has been no looking back. Define your life as an actor, model and TV Host.
Dance was the love of my life growing up and on into college, but I always enjoyed television opportunities when they arose, and I signed with a talent agent at age 14. Back at that time, Nashville had few opportunities for television or film. However, with my mom being a television host on the then cable network TNN (The Nashville Network) my first on-camera experience was at age 14, when I introduced country star Aaron Tippin on the show Opry Backstage as we went to commercial break. But, with dance and getting my education as my focus, I didn’t actively pursue television and film until after winning Mrs. Tennessee in 2012, and then competing at Mrs. America. That title opened doors, and with Nashville as an up and coming “It” city, the opportunities were many. After Mrs. Tennessee, I began modeling for some well known Nashville boutiques, and was cast in commercials, web series, and music videos, including Carrie Underwood’s “Two Black Cadillacs,” nominated for Video of the Year. I played opposite Carrie as the wife to the two-timing man. Then, in 2014, I was cast in a supporting role in the faith-based film, “Where is Good?” which premiered in select theaters from coast to coast, and can now be found on Amazon Prime. I most recently finished shooting my role as the District Attorney in a film called “Trap City”, which stars actor Brandon Jackson, star of such films as “Percy Jackson”, “Tropic Thunder”, “The Fast and The Furious”, and Clifton Powell of “Ray”, “Saints and Sinners”, “Next Friday”, and “All Eyes on Me”.
As a host, I’ve worked as a red carpet correspondent at some of Nashville’s most exciting events and have interviewed dozens of music, television, and sports celebrities including Trisha Yearwood, Lauren Daigle, Joe Montana, Colton Dixon, Brooke Hogan, Tito Ortiz, cast members of the hit show “Nashville”, and many more. Hosting is really my biggest passion, as I feel most natural in that role, and it’s a bit of a full circle feeling since I grew up watching my mom in the studio and on the television screen. I recently had the opportunity to head out to Los Angeles and take classes with internationally known television hosting coach Marki Costello, who works with many of the hosts you see on the air now. That was a big “pinch me” moment for me.
