Caroline Cutbirth and Jennifer Wayne (formerly Kuhle) are a team of Country Singers on The Amazing Race 22 and The Amazing Race: All-Stars.

In The Amazing Race 22, Caroline & Jennifer used their charm with both the locals, as well as their fellow competitors, to keep themselves in a good position throughout the race. They formed a particularly close and flirtatious bond with Bates & Anthony, with both teams helping each other out at critical points in the race, allowing their alliance to make it to the final four. In the penultimate leg, however, the country singers fell behind early on after Jennifer struggled at the Roadblock, in addition to them struggling with navigation. Any chance they might have had to catch up was squashed when their own ally, Anthony, unwittingly gave a struggling Mona & Beth crucial information at the Detour, leaving Caroline & Jennifer to be eliminated in 4th place.

In All-Stars, Caroline & Jennifer again used their charm to flirt with the many all-male teams, who would help the country singers whenever they struggled with tasks. When the all-male teams were unable to help them, however, Caroline & Jennifer tended to struggle with physical tasks, resulting in them coming in last twice on Non-Elimination Legs. Despite this, Caroline & Jennifer again excelled with the social aspect of the game, forming the Accidental Alliance with Dave & Connor and Leo & Jamal to target Brendon & Rachel, allowing the country singers to make it to the final three. In spite of their early struggles, they managed to step it up in the final two legs, racing Dave & Connor for first on both occasions. The final leg, however, was inexplicably effectively decided by which team got to the final Clue Box first as the final Roadblock proved to be linear. Dave & Connor's taxi overtook Caroline & Jennifer's just before this point, which allowed them to get to the clue box four seconds ahead of the country singers, resulting in Caroline & Jennifer coming in 2nd place.
