When John Prine starts a record label, you pay attention; and when he signs an act for the first time in over a decade, you pay attention some more. Kentucky-native Kelsey Waldon brings a fresh vibe to the Country sound, with a voice that feels plucked from the foothills of Appalachia, and a throwaway-cool that feels just right.
Kelsey Waldon has received wide praise from NPR and has toured consistently with other artists like Jamey Johnson, Tyler Childers, and John Prine. Anyhow is the lead track off of her new record White Noise/White Lines, due Oct. 4th, which does well to reignite the connection Country music has with the spiritual alchemy of making something from nothing. Anyhow is a story of finding that spark in the darkness, when it almost felt like there was nothing left. With a deft lyrical hand, Kelsey Waldon gives cover for anyone choosing to go their own way - this song is about you.
Even if the world crumbles at your feet
You’re gonna pick up that earth somehow
Kelsey recently signed with John Prine's legendary independent record label, Oh Boy Records, making her the first signee in 15 years. This song is featured on our Country playlist.
