Kelsey Waldon may have small-town roots..but her songs know no bounds.
Stopping in Charlotte on a cold November night, Kelsey Waldon transformed the Evening Muse into a proper country music venue. Supporting her latest album White Noise/White Lines, Kelsey put on a great show.
Born and raised in the rural community of Monkey’s Eyebrow Kentucky, Kelsey is about as real as it gets. In a state that has produced some of the best emerging country artists, Kelsey adds to that list with songs that speak of life experiences and different points of view.
Throughout her set, Kelsey would sometimes give a tiny snippet of the song’s origin, crediting her grandma for one of them. Things like this paint a portrait of a person who has lived. A person that isn’t filling a song quota, or searching for current buzzwords. A true country artist.
Kelsey also brought a killer band with her. One of the best sounding rhythm sections belongs to Nate Felty & Alec Newnam. This only elevated Kelsey’s songs.
The crowd at the Evening Muse was attentive the whole night, with silence coming during the acoustic part of Kelsey’s set. It was a truly authentic country night at the Evening Muse, and I highly recommend going out and supporting this great artist.
Kelsey is on tour through the new year, with dates surely being added in the future. Thanks to Kelsey for having ATC out to the show!
