RECORDS Nashville’s rising new artist Erin Kinsey is set to release her debut EP, 40 East, on March 25. She just released “Hate This Hometown” from the project, which she penned along with Kathleen Higgins and Dave Cohen.
The new project features six tracks all co-written by Kinsey, including her debut single, “Just Drive,” which has over 20 million streams/views to date and hits country radio on Feb. 14. After sharing sneak peek video clips of the song on her socials, Kinsey garnered more than 7.2 million views on TikTok and over 62,500 pre-saves prior to release.
“Naming this debut EP 40 East is very special to me,” shares Kinsey. “Highway 40 East is the road that gets me most of the way from Texas to Nashville, and it’s a road I’ve driven many times since I started coming to town with my family, my boyfriend, my friends, and [my dog] Chewy. All of these songs, and this project, are a reflection of my life up until now, and one of the biggest parts of my story is chasing this crazy dream of mine.” She continues, “What I didn’t know, is that 40 East was taking me to so many of my dreams coming true, including this EP.”
The 21-year-old Texas native has been working towards a music career since the age of 11. Having moved from Texas to Tennessee the morning after her high school graduation, Kinsey quickly immersed herself in country music and was embraced by music insiders. She consistently receives close to ten million views on original songs on TikTok, and “Just Drive” has been featured on SiriusXM The Highway’s On The Horizon.
