Show Dog Nashville has signed singer-songwriter Kimberly Kelly, joining a roster that includes Clay Walker, Krystal Keith and label head Toby Keith.
“She sings country music with emotion and range,” says Keith. “I am big on songwriters and her talent impressed me. She’s a songwriter that has something to say.”
Kelly has released a crowd-funded EP and two independent albums. She has written with esteemed writers and performers including Lori McKenna, Terry McBride, Erin Enderlin and Steve Wariner. The Lorena, Texas native aims to build on her regional notoriety with a new album project due later this year.
“I’m thrilled to have a nod from Toby and the Show Dog team, and for the opportunity to make more music! Toby has done things his way, and I feel like I’ve tried my best to do the same,” Kelly says. “I’m looking forward to having this great team behind me. I’m grateful David Macias came across my last EP, and believed in it and me enough to introduce me to Toby and the label.”
Show Dog Nashville was founded in 2005 by Toby Keith and will market Kelly’s music in partnership with Thirty Tigers.
