Kalie Shorr Debuts New Acoustic Video for 'Amy'

Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Kalie Shorr is debuting a new acoustic performance video for her latest single, "Amy," today. Watch/share below.

Produced by Butch Walker (Avril Lavigne, Taylor Swift, Green Day), "Amy" was released last month to widespread critical praise after first debuting on TikTok, where it has garnered nearly 3 million views to date. Of the track, Rolling Stone proclaims, "Kalie Shorr pairs euphoric Nineties power pop with the lyrical sting of Alanis's glorious," while Billboard declares, "Shorr goes full-on rock with assistance from revered pop/rock producer Butch Walker for this power-pop nugget that jumps out of the speakers." The song is the first unveiled from Shorr's forthcoming EP, set for release later this year. Additional details to be announced soon.

The release continues a series of breakout years for Shorr and furthers her reputation as "a woman who won't be silenced" (Billboard). Her critically acclaimed debut album, Open Book, was released in 2019 with its deluxe edition, Open Book: Unabridged, following this past December. Self-released by Shorr, Open Book received widespread critical praise and landed on several "Best of 2019" lists including The New York Times, Variety, Stereogum, The Bitter Southerner and NPR Music, who praised, "Wow this new Kalie Shorr album is good. Mainstream millennial/Z country that makes me think of Avril and Phoebe Bridgers somehow meeting and forming a consciousness raising group...Hot stuff from one of Nashville's most promising." Moreover, The New York Times declared, "the sort of gut-wrenching album made by someone who understands how vital and detailed country music can be, and who is faithful to its heritage (including its lineage of resistance)," while Variety proclaimed, "one of the best contemporary songwriters the genre has to offer."

Born in Maine and now living in Nashville, Shorr arrived on the scene in 2016 with the release of her debut single, "Fight Like A Girl," and has continued to receive widespread attention across Nashville and beyond ever since. She's been included in CMT's "Next Women of Country," SiriusXM The Highway's "Highway Find" and Teen Vogue's "The New Nashville," while also being named an artist to watch by The Tennessean and HuffPost. She has shared the stage with iconic artists such as LeAnn Rimes, Sara Evans, Keith Urban, Stevie Nicks, Jason Isbell and The Struts, and made her Grand Ole Opry debut in 2018. In addition to her acclaimed musical career, Shorr also has her own podcast, "Too Much To Say with Kalie Shorr," produced by iHeartMedia and Bobby Bones.
