“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Featuring Kalie Shorr

“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Featuring Kalie Shorr

Kalie Shorr has been carving out a name for herself since moving to Music City five years ago . . . and she hasn’t let a little thing like the lack of a record deal stand in her way.

Since 2016, Kalie has released three EPs, and as one of the co-founders of the all-female, singer-songwriter collective Song Suffragettes, the talented 24-year-old has been an incredible champion for women, not only in country music, but in all genres. The group’s 2018 song, “Times Up,” which Kalie co-wrote, addresses issues of gender inequality and sexual misconduct in relation to the #MeToo movement.

We talk about Kalie’s journey, shocking ways she’s been told “no” in the industry, her music and so much more. Hope you enjoy!

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
