Later in October 2009, she competed as Miss Ocean Shores Teen USA in the 2010 Miss Washington Teen USA pageant (but did not win the title). In 2010, she released the original songs "Car Candy," "Crazy," "Don't Put It on Me," "Hurting People," and "We Are America. " Star Observer ranked "Don't Put It On Me" as number eleven on their list of The 11 Best Songs of '11. Stodden said, "Don’t Put It On Me’ is a kind of tongue and cheek song that I didn’t take seriously at all, but it obviously had a good message to it. " Stodden's mother, Krista Keller, initially served as her manager, but Keller quit in the spring of 2015, citing "creative differences". Stodden was managed by Hutchison.
