Kelsey Waldon


Kelsey Waldon is a country singer and songwriter from Kentucky who has been making waves in the Nashville scene with her honest and heartfelt music. Waldon grew up in a rural town called Monkey's Eyebrow, where she learned to play guitar at age 13 and started writing songs to cope with her parents' divorce.

She moved to Nashville after high school to pursue her dream of becoming a musician, and enrolled in Belmont University to study songwriting and music business. She released four EPs independently before landing a deal with John Prine's label, Oh Boy Records, in 2019.

She has also collaborated with artists like Prine, Kelsey Waldon, and Neil Young, and has performed at festivals like Newport Folk Festival, AmericanaFest, and Celtic Connections.

Waldon is known for her powerful voice, her storytelling skills, and her social and political commentary. She has been nominated for a Grammy Award and has been featured on Rolling Stone, NPR, The Fader, and other media outlets.  Waldon is a force of nature, a modern traditionalist, and a storyteller with so much to say but nothing to prove.
