In June 2006, Pruitt's debut single, "Outside Looking In", was released to promote the Disney Channel TV film, Read It and Weep. Her debut studio album, No Ordinary Girl, was released on February 6, 2007 and peaked at number sixty-four on the US Billboard 200 chart in the United States.[6]

In February 2011, it was confirmed that Jordan was no longer under contract with Hollywood Records, but was signed to Jonas Records.[9] Pruitt premiered her song, "Shy Boy", on March 1, via Facebook and YouTube. It was later confirmed the version of "Shy Boy" released on March 1 was a demo version and it was only released for promotional use, however a real version of the song would be on her upcoming album.[citation needed] In April 2011, another new song entitled "What a Feeling" was leaked. It is expected to be on her new album.[citation needed] On July 5, Jordan posted a preview of a new song, "Something's Gotta Give", on her YouTube account.

On September 2, 2012, Pruitt announced on her official website and at the beginning of a video of her performing "My Love Is Like a Star" by Demi Lovato, that she would be offering seven unreleased songs, one song a day for a week, accompanied with a music video.[citation needed]

On October 12, 2012, Pruitt made a YouTube video titled "R.I.P Amanda Todd". She had found out that Amanda Todd's last YouTube video was of her singing Jordan Pruitt's song, "Outside Looking In", before she had committed suicide. Pruitt went on to say she hoped people would fight to stop bullying and cyber-bullying, and that her thoughts and prayers were with Amanda Todd's family.[10]

2012–2017: The Voice, retirement

On August 3, 2012, Pruitt announced on her official Facebook page that she had auditioned for the third season of the American singing television competition, The Voice. Her blind audition aired on NBC on September 24, 2012. She sang "The One That Got Away" by Katy Perry. Christina Aguilera was the only one of the four coaches to turn around and Pruitt became part of Team Christina by default. Pruitt's battle competition against Adriana Louise was aired on October 23, 2012, in which the two singers took part in singing "Hot n Cold" by Perry. Aguilera ruled Louise the winner, eliminating Pruitt from the competition. Following Pruitt's elimination from The Voice, she tweeted fans to say that she was taking on the country genre.[11]

In May 2013, Pruitt announced via Twitter that her first country EP would be released in 2013 and the first single would be released at the end of June, but they were not released.[11][12] Pruitt also announced that she would be going on tour the summer of 2013.[13]
