Lori McKenna
Lori McKenna
Home and the people who make it have captivated Lori McKenna for years. Over the last three decades, as she became a wife and mother of five, she has also emerged as one of the most respected, prolific singer-songwriters in popular music. Her 2016 release The Bird and the Rifle netted three Grammy nominations, along with Americana Music Association nods––all firsts for McKenna as an artist. Then, she made history: In 2016, she became the first woman ever to win the Country Music Association’s Song of the Year two years in a row thanks to co-writing Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” and penning Tim McGraw’s no. 1 “Humble and Kind” solo. Both songs also clinched back-to-back Grammy wins for Best Country Song. In 2017, she became the Academy of Country Music’s first female Songwriter of the Year. McKenna’s much-anticipated eleventh studio album, produced by Dave Cobb, takes one of McKenna’s signature themes––family––and builds a tapestry of experiences she has lived and overheard, been told and dreamed up, to create a stunning ode to life’s defining relationships.
Whitney Fenimore
Whitney Fenimore grew up in Tulsa, OK singing in the church and performing with different folk and Christian groups. After college, she relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music as an artist and songwriter. With the hope of reaching a bigger audience in a new city, Whitney moved away from the folk and americana sound that she was known for back home, writing new material that was more mainstream pop. This decision ultimately led to stress and pressure that sent Whitney into deep depression and bouts of high anxiety. After six months of recuperation and with the support of her family, Whitney found music again. She started playing in local coffee shops in Tulsa and gained the confidence to pursue something bigger. She auditioned for NBC's “The Voice” in 2017 and appeared on the show’s 13th season, making it to the knockout round. Whitney began writing a new set of material during her time on “The Voice” and went into the recording studio with writer/producer John Coggins at the beginning of 2018. She released the single “Find Your Love” in March, which was followed by the single “Stones” in April. After receiving praise from the likes of The Boot, Refinery 29, BlackBook and Popdust, Whitney released an EP titled Battle Within in May.
