About Kalie Shorr:
Kalie Shorr burst onto the Nashville music scene in 2016 with her self-penned hit, “Fight Like A Girl”. The Portland, Maine, singer-songwriter became a Sirius XM “Highway Find” and was praised by Spotify, CMT, Radio Disney Country, Taste of Country, and even Billboard magazine. In 2017, Kalie released her Slingshot EP to rave reviews and was named “New Artist You Need to Know” by Rolling Stone, “The New Nashville” by Teen Vogue, and one of “2017’s Hottest Artists Under 25” by Taste of Country. In late 2017, Kalie was inducted into CMT’s “Next Women of Country” Class of 2018. Her first single of 2018 - “Two Hands” - was added to Sirius XM and TuneIn with prominent placement on Apple Music’s Breaking Country and Cool Country playlists, and Kalie became the only independent artist in Power Rotation on Radio Disney Country. Her newest EP, Awake, was released January 26, 2018, and yielded her current single “Candy” that Taste of Country says “is what a great, care-free country song sounds like.” Shorr fulfilled a lifelong dream in March of 2018 when she made her Grand Ole Opry debut and has since played the Opry a total of seven times. Earlier in the year, she wrapped the “CMT Next Women of Country” Tour alongside Sara Evans and RaeLynn. Playing over 100 shows a year, Kalie’s message of female empowerment has led to her being called the “next ‘Women of Country’ generation” [CMChat] and a “modern country woman [who will] continue to inspire in 2018” [TasteofCountry.com].
