Crowned by many as the one to watch in 2018, CMT Next Women of Country artist Kalie Shorr is set to release “Awake” on January 26th. The highly-anticipated project features seven songs that truly showcase Shorr’s ability, passion and energy she injects into her music. “Awake” will be available for pre-sale on iTunes January 15th 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 25th 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.

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 a “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. Her new single “Two Hands” just premiered on Radio Disney Country and will be followed by a new EP in late 2017. 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].
