Prettyman recorded her third CD for Virgin Records in August 2011 (release date not yet set) and was picked to appear in a four-episode TV commercial for KPRI, which started running in October that year.“I think it’s great that KPRI went with TV commercials,” says Prettyman.

“We both live in Del Mar,” says Prettyman, who has performed at several KPRI-sponsored events over the years.

In spring 2012, Prettyman performed for an event at Virgin Records owner Richard Branson’s private island in the British Virgin Islands.

Bob Borbonus and the whole gang over at Taylor have been there for me since day one. It’s been my go-to guitar for everything.” Her favorite local hangout? Around Christmas 2010, she announced her engagement to famous neighbor Jason Mraz.

She followed this with a ten-month national tour with Jason Mraz. However, early in 2011, Mraz said the marriage was off, announcing that until gay marriage was legal, he wouldn’t tie the knot with anyone. “Our friends already knew that we both decided we weren’t ready.

That gay marriage thing really wasn’t the reason.” Prettyman says she was surprised how Mraz chose to explain why the wedding was off.
