She had her first national hit at age 13 with the 1996 release of Blue, which remained at the #1 spot on Billboard’s country albums chart for more than three months. 2016 marked the 20th anniversary of her debut album, Blue. Out of the 42 charting singles she has released throughout her expansive career, LeAnn’s song “How Do I Live”, ranks #4 on Billboard’s “Greatest of All Time: Hot 100 Songs,” and it holds the record for being the second longest charting song ever on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. 15 of her multi-genre singles are top-10 hits, including “Can't Fight the Moonlight”, which went #1 in 11 countries. She had a hand in penning every song on her 2007’s release Family, which received two GRAMMY nominations. Her last album with Curb Records, Spitfire, was released in June 2013 and was immediately a critics darling, debuting at #9 on Billboard’s Top Country Album chart and #4 on iTunes. An album of greatest hits dance remixes, Dance Like You Don’t Give A ....Greatest Hits Remixes, released the summer of 2014 and went to #1 on the iTunes Dance chart.

Kalie Shorr burst onto the Nashville music scene in 2016 with her self-penned hit “Fight Like A Girl”. The Portland, Maine singer-songwriter became a Sirius XM Highway Find and was praised by Spotify, CMT, Radio Disney Country, Taste of Country, and even Billboard magazine. In 2017, Kalie released her Slingshot EP to rave reviews and was named “New Artist You Need to Know” by Rolling Stone, “The New Nashville” by Teen Vogue, and one of “2017’s Hottest Artists Under 25” by Taste of Country. Her first 2018 single “Two Hands” garnered airplay on Sirius XM, Radio Disney Country, Pandora and TuneIn with prominent placement on Apple Music’s Breaking Country and Cool Country playlists. Named a CMT Next Women of Country and a “Top 10 Country Artists To Watch In 2018” by the Huffington Post, Kalie released her latest EP Awake to critical acclaim and toured with Sara Evans and RaeLynn on the CMT Next Women of Country Tour. On March 31, 2018, Kalie fulfilled a life-long dream when she made her Grand Ole Opry debut calling it “one of the most emotional experiences of my life” and has since gone on to play the Opry 11 times. In late 2018, she headlined the Walmart/Pepsi “Road to the CMA Awards” Tour raising awareness for the 52nd annual CMA Awards telecast. And in November, Radio Disney Country launched a daily radio series called “Let The Girls Play” hosted by Kalie and fellow Song Suffragette Savannah Keyes. Playing over 100 shows a year, Kalie’s message of female empowerment has led to praise for her “social advocacy” [NPR] and to her being called a “modern country woman [who will] continue to inspire” [TasteofCountry.com]. Kalie is currently completing her first full album set to release this September.
