“Rising star” (People) RECORDS Nashville recording artist, Erin Kinsey, is wrapping up a busy weekend in Las Vegas at the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards™.
For her first ever awards show, Kinsey was named an Amazon Prime Video Creator with the savvy singer-songwriter hitting her socials and sharing a behind the curtain glimpse from Allegiant Stadium on the big night. Leading up to the show, Kinsey played an electrified set at the ACM Lifting Lives® Topgolf Tee-Off event, with proceeds benefiting ACM Lifting Lives®, and hit the stage as part of the “Revolutionary Women of Music” event, hosted by Kelly Ford and presented by PickleJar.
The packed weekend led into an exciting milestone as her debut radio single, “Just Drive,” impacts country radio this week, racking up 26 total stations and 3rd most added (Mediabase) honors. Written by Kinsey along with Michael August and Josh Ronen and produced by Ronen, the song continues to gain momentum with over 23 million streams/views to date and counting.
“Erin Kinsey is the rare new artist who lights up the stage and fires up the audience from the very first note,” says Jim Murphy, Senior Manager, Country Programming at Music Choice. “Such an easy decision to add Erin out-of-the-box on Music Choice.”
“Erin connects with her audience on all levels. I’ve seen it in person at shows, and on multiple social platforms. She’s the real deal,” says John Reynolds, PD WSOC/VP of Music and Entertainment, Beasley Media Group.
Last week, the official music video for her latest track release, “Hate This Hometown,” premiered via CMT.com, and fans can check out an acoustic performance video of her hit “Just Drive” now via The Country Daily.
