With her effervescent personality and country charm, Kelleigh Bannen might very well remind you of the girl-next-door; that is if your next door neighbor loves a good shot of whiskey, plays a mean classical violin and prowls the stage like a woman on a mission. Possessing a voice that commands attention and a songwriter’s gift for assessing life’s most disarming situations and distilling them into potent anthems, Bannen is emerging as one of the country format’s most engaging new artists.

On her EMI Nashville debut, Bannen’s music reflects the essence of the artist herself—stylish yet substantive, tender and heartfelt yet bold and uncompromisingly direct. Working with producers Paul Worley and Jerry Smith, Bannen has crafted an impressive debut album that includes the kind of slice-of-life songs that resonate with a wide audience. She makes her bow at country radio with “Sorry on the Rocks,” taking aim at a lover who offers too little too late to make the relationship work. Her strong, stirring vocals offer a portrait of a survivor who isn’t going to fall for a drunken apology at 2:44 am.

Bannen knew early on that she wanted to write music that would both inspire and entertain. Though she has the vocal chops to find success in any genre, country has long been her vehicle of choice. “Growing up country was always what I was listening to on the radio,” says Bannen, who was born in Pontiac, Michigan, but moved to Nashville when she was three-years-old. “I truly love country radio and I think as a songwriter, it’s really the only genre that treats songs so seriously. The song is king.”

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
