Alex Kline is making history this week as the first solo female producer to have a Top 15 country radio hit by a female artist, with Tenille Arts‘ “Somebody Like That.”
The single, co-written with Arts for her album, Love, Heartbreak & Everything in Between, has reached 65 million streams, further establishing Kline as a game-changing producer and songwriter helping shape the future of country. The single debuted at No. 2 of the iTunes Country chart and No. 10 on the iTunes all-genre chart, spent three weeks at No. 1 at Radio Disney Country, went No. 1 on Billboard’s all-genre Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart, and just debuted at No. 97 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. On Spotify, the song peaked at No. 11 on the United States Viral 50 chart as well.
“I like the balance I’ve found between writing, playing, and producing,” said Kline. “There’s a unique synergy in combining multiple creative approaches and how each inspires the other. One of the most exciting things to me right now is finding an artist I love and tapping into what makes them unique and helping to make that shine, whether it be one of my own musical influences like Terri Clark or a new up and coming star like Tenille Arts.”
Kline’s production credits include working with Terri Clark, Tara Thompson, Adam Brand, Erin Enderlin, John King, Jordan Rager, Maggie Rose and Jillian Cardarelli, among others. As a writer she’s penned songs for Ronnie Dunn (“Damn Drunk”), Reba McEntire (“The Bar Is Getting Lower”), Mitchell Tenpenny (“I Get the Picture”), Gary Allan (“Slide”), and Meghan Patrick (“Praying Right”), as well songs on albums for Terri Clark (Raising the Bar), Cassadee Pope (Rise and Shine), Jordan Rager (Habits and Hearts), and many more.
Her current projects in development include writing and producing the follow-up to Arts’ Love, Heartbreak & Everything in Between album, and producing Stephanie Quayle’s forthcoming album featuring her latest single, “By Heart.”
