New on The Show

Kelsey Waldon

“Town Clown” – “This is probably one of my favourites on here...It’s a wonderful track, a really good country sound” -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Country Music!
tags: alt-country/ Americana/ country outlaw country/ singer-songwriter/ traditional
Hometown: Monkey's Eyebrow, Kentucky
Current Location: Nashville
A razor-sharp lyricist and a singular singer
Sounds Like: Tammy Wynette on a trip to Whiskeytown, as unafraid of heavy twang and spitfire pedal steel as coffeehouse confessionals. For Fans Of: Loretta Lynn, John Prine, Caitlin Rose.

Her music is best described as classic country/Americana and her debut album is full of pedal steel and gritty lyrics.
“(The album) is just basically about how it doesn’t take money to make you happy,” she says. “Burning a lot of bridges that you shouldn’t have burned, families get torn apart and money’s not everything.”

East Nashville crooner Kelsey Waldon is bringing back '70s era saloon rock on her new album The Goldmine. You can almost hear the bottles bursting over chain-link barriers, and smell the smoke of a thousand Marlboro Reds on this one.
Single "One Time Again" is introduced through a ridiculous pedal-steel solo, courtesy of Brett Resnick. It's so lyrical, you'll be humming this tune for the rest of forever.
This singer-songwriter and unofficial Queen of East Nashville (she moved there from Kentucky) released her debut album in June 24th 2014, entitled, THE GOLDMINE which was crowd-funded ($5000 goal reached on Indiegogo)

Why You Should Pay Attention: Waldon came to Nashville from Monkey's Eyebrow, Kentucky – a town that can count its residents on fingers and toes – to attend Belmont University, with a backpack full of Guy Clark records and denim to match. But the swiftest education came on the stages of local dive bars, where she found that people listened best when she sang honestly about the realities of her dirt-road upbringing. On her debut LP, The Goldmine, Waldon makes music like someone raised on both "White Lightnin'" and Wilco, tackling troubled pasts, cheatin' hearts and what happens when we don't all worship the same
American dreams. "My daddy's gone to rehab/I'm just trying not to do the same," she sings before a rollercoaster Telecaster riff.
Critical Acclaim:
The Washington Post names "The Goldmine" one of this month's best in music! ...This Kentucky-raised rookie frequently sings in an endearing, old-school twang, but on the title track of her debut album, her voice glows like honky-tonk neon: “I don’t want the goldmine, I just want to be all right.” "I promise this is country’s coolest young voice." - Joe Heim, The Washington Post
Farce The - Kelsey Waldon is so country, she never has to mention it on the entirety of her new album, yet you know it from the first word she sings (the first note, in fact). Her voice is effortlessly twangy and personable and The Goldmine
proudly hails from a lineage of Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Lee Ann Womack and the like.
Billboard Feature - Kelsey Waldon says that while her style of country offers a more traditional slant, she can certainly identify with many of the lyrics on the radio these days.
Policymic: The 9 Real Country Music Stars of Our Generation - Somewhere between Folsom Prison and all those dirt roads with the girls in painted-on jeans in the moonlight, country music got taken over by bros. But there's a part of the country world most people haven't heard — a young part where some of the world's best songwriters are creating something that's respectful of their forefathers but still fresh. Here are nine young countryartists keeping country alive.

Watch Kelsey Waldon performing >> "One Time Again" and "Town Clown" at Music City Roots live from the Loveless Cafe on May 28, 2014.

Skylar Elise
“You’ll Never Understand” -  “A really lovely steel intro, in between traditional and contemporary” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Skylar Elise, the debut artist to sign with Sugar Money Records has released her powerful new single “You’ll Never Understand”, released July 7, 2014 it showcases her compelling vocals and distinctive sound.  Skylar’s latest release is accompanied by the music video, which is now available on various video outlets and >> YouTube.
Signing with American Idol Season 4 Runner-Up Bo Bice’s label came after Bice heard Skylar sing for the first time. Bice immediately knew he heard talent and soon became Skylar’s mentor.
The 15 year old, Fort Worth, Texas, native is an old soul who has been performing for a decade and has an uncanny ability to wring every drop of emotion from a song. “Everybody has gone through heartbreak, but no matter how hard people try to understand, they’ll never understand the pain you are going through unless they’ve actually gone through it themselves,” Skylar says discussing the vulnerable emotion behind her new music video.
Her first single, “Gypsy Soul,” was released in June 2013 from her self-titled EP that propelled her beyond her already extensive fan base
Skylar devotes part of each day to writing songs, but when she’s not singing or writing, Skylar admits she’s a tomboy and her hobbies reflect that. “I’m a country girl! I love to shoot my bow and arrow and I like swimming and skateboarding.”
