Highlighted as 2018 Artist to Watch by Huffington Post, One Country, NashvilleGab and More
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 8, 2018) -- Crowned by many as the one to watch in 2018, CMT Next Women of Country artist Kalie Shorr is set to release Awakeon January 26. The highly-anticipated project features seven songs that truly showcase Shorr’s ability, passion and energy she injects into her music. Awakewill be available for pre-sale on iTunes January 15 while the project's first single "Two Hands" continues to be featured on SiriusXM The Highway's "On The Horizon," Radio Disney Country, TuneIn Country Roads and on prominent Apple Music playlists Breaking Country and Cool Country.
“Sometimes, this industry makes you second guess yourself,” Shorr explains. “It might not even mean to -- there are just so many opinions and it's easy to try to please everyone. This project is the first time I've tuned everything else out but my own gut feeling on who I am and what makes me unique. This past summer, I bought a new electric guitar, met an amazing producer, and fell back in love with the records that made me want to write songs in the first place. Before I knew it, the Awake EP was born. I couldn't be more excited for it's release, this record feels like the most authentic introduction to me I could give anyone.”
Shorr will host an Awake EP launch party on Thursday, January 25 at The Back Corner. The event will be open to both the media and the public. To view the invitation, click here.
Shorr, who was recently announced as support alongside RaeLynn on the CMT Next Women of Country Presents Sara Evans All The Love Tour, has been a powerful voice for women in country music and remains fiercely herself amidst adversity. Over the past month, she has been highlighted as one to watch by Huffington Post, TBK Magazine, Nashville.com, New England Country Music, Nashville Country Club, One Country, CelebSecrets Country and Nashville Gab.

“...her voice is uniquely hers, further stretching the boundaries Swift shifted in her country days. Shorr represents the genre-bending future…” - One Country

Her music is already catching the attention of critics and you can now get both singles via all digital platforms here: "FREE DRINKS" & "IF IT AIN'T FIXED."
“Sounds like: The glory days of female-fronted, nineties country music,
updated for a generation raised on Spotify… showcasing a Georgia native
with Tennessee-sized twang and ball-busting sass.” – Rolling Stone
Just named one of Rolling Stone’s 10 New Artists You Need To Know and set to join her good buddy Luke Combs for 14 Sold Out dates of his “Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time” tour, Rachels is eager to get out and share her music with new fans.

Whether it’s owning and driving her own Drag Racing car by the age of twelve, or putting her own band together while attending college at the University of Georgia, Rachels showed that she has what it takes from a very early age. This drive led her to Nashville in 2012 and she has had no regrets. The singer/songwriter penned four of the five tracks on her self-titled EP including one of her two debut singles “Free Drinks.” As she releases her debut project, the spitfire performer will get to shine on stage as she opens for one of country music’s hottest performers, Luke Combs, on 14 dates of his “Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time” tour.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Fans of Aaron Lewis won’t be disappointed with the latest addition to his nonstop tour schedule. Lewis joins country-rocker Brantley Gilbert for his The Ones That Like Me 2018 Tour. Having spent the better portion of 2017 crisscrossing the nation on his Sinner Tour, Lewis’ no-holds-barred attitude continues breaking barriers that are so prevalent in today’s music industry. His raw lyrics and authentic sound continue to keep his loyal fan base satisfied while adding to it with each performance.
“Since beginning a solo country career, Lewis has only grown more confident in his honky-tonk spirit with last year's excellent Sinner LP easily being one of the year’s best country albums.” - Dallas Morning News.
Making its debut at No. 1 on the Top 200 Albums, Top Country Albums and Top Digital Albums Charts, Lewis released SINNER, his third solo country project, in September 2016. In the stunning Dot Records follow up to his full-length solo debut, THE ROAD, Lewis redefines outlaw country. The critically-acclaimed project was recorded in a stunning 16 hours at Nashville’s Blackbird Studio with legendary producer Buddy Cannon (Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Alison Krauss, Jamey Johnson). Single-handedly writing 8 out of the 12 tracks, the outspoken singer/songwriter once again delivers.”
“Aaron Lewis shows a surprising understanding and respect for country music with his latest album, Sinner. Drawing from his childhood influences of listening to country music in his grandfather's car, Sinner shows Aaron's abilities as a singer, songwriter, musician and stylist. With guest appearances from Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Willie Nelson and Dan Tyminski, SINNER might just be the record that propels Aaron to a permanent place in country music.” - The Boot
“Aaron Lewis brings a raw honesty to his songs on the new album Sinner that Country Music radio hasn’t heard in a long time. The imagery of the lyrics sucks you in, but his mournful voice and guitar keep you!”- Maverick Magazine
