Kelsey Waldon (USA)

Kelsey Waldon is a country singer and songwriter, and her base is in Nashville. She grew up in a little West Kentucky town with bluegrass and country music in her ears. Aged 13, she began playing and writing songs, and among her inspirations are classic country musicians such as Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn and George Jones. After high school, Kelsey Waldon moved to Nashville to follow her dream of getting a foot in the door at country music’s mecca. She released a series of EPs, then an album, and played all the jobs she could get her hands on. The media – Rolling Stone magazine and radio station NPR among them – noticed the young singer-songwriter, and they were not alone. In May 2019, she performed at The Grand Ole Opry in a show with Sturgill Simpson and John Prine. John Prine announced on that occasion that Kelsey Waldon’s recordings should come out on his record label Oh Boy Records. And so it came to pass that Kelsey Waldon became Oh Boys Records’ first new artist in 15 years. In 2020 the album White Noise/White Lines was released, and in August 2022 the album No Regular Dog. Her only Danish festival in 2023.
