You might not be too familiar the name Kalie Shorr just yet, but that will soon change, as the Nashville-based singer-songwriter has been working tirelessly on her musical craft.
The talented, 23-year-old budding country star, who made waves with songs like, “Fight Like A Girl” and “He’s Just Not That Into You,” has now released her the music video for her latest single, “Two Hands.”
In this visually clever clip, a feisty Kalie is surrounded by dreamy, bright neon lights in what appears to be an abandoned building. She confidently sings about the nonjudgmental love she shares with a dark, tall and handsome man, who looks in on her from the outside of a window.
By the time the chorus hits, Kalie, is strumming away on her electric guitar as she happily belts out the song’s catchy hook, which praises her man’s ability to handle all of her unique flaws.
“Cause you got two hands that know how to hold me / Loving like only you can / And maybe you’re crazy, but baby you’ll take me as I am / You know I don’t try to, but I can be hard to handle / I might be a handful / But that’s why you got two hands,” Kalie sings before thanking her man for letting her stay true to herself.
“Two Hands” is the first single from Kalie’s newly-released EP “Awake,” which dropped on Jan. 26. The country newcomer’s seven-track collection, produced by Skip Black, is an authentic representation of Kalie’s pop country sound.
“I have always said that I loved country music because it was raw, real and honest. But until now, I found myself glossing over my truth, whether I meant to or not,” Kalie — a member of CMT’s “Next Women of Country” class of 2018 — said, while talking about the new EP in a press release. “The truth is, I have lived a lot in 23 years. My life has been messy and beautiful, sometimes at the same time. So this time around, I made a promise to myself to be vulnerable and not hold back — just make REAL music. I feel like I took a really big step, both career-wise but also personally. Everything about this project is what makes me who I am, and I owe all seven of these songs for showing me exactly what that is.”
Fans can be sure to hear some of Kalie’s new music when she hits the road on the “Next Women of Country Presents Sara Evans All the Love Tour.” The 15-city run, which also features headliner Sara and “The Voice” alum RaeLynn, kicks off on Feb. 12 in New York.
When she’s in Nashville, Kalie can also be found regularly playing at the weekly, Monday night Song Suffragettes performances at the Listening Room Cafe, which feature a rotating roster of Nashville’s up-and-coming female singer-songwriters.
