Meet Ole Red’s First Round of On the Rise Artists 

Ole Red has hand-picked the up-and-coming country artists who are on a fast track to becoming Music Row mainstays and are bringing them to Broadway. Kick off CMA Fest with a FREE concert at Ole Red Nashville on June 7th at 8 p.m., hosted by Zak Kuhn and presented by Tractor Supply. Here’s the lineup:

Erin Kinsey

This Texas native may be young, but she brings a whole lotta spirit on stage. With the skills of a master musician and her bright vocals, the 22-year-old is known to create a unique and effortless sound. Just this year, she released her first complete album, Bet My Heart. With close to 700,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, Erin has over 35 million streams on her hit single, “Just Drive” and almost 3 million streams on her single, “Boys in Boots.” A promising future ahead, she continues her journey to fame on Ole Red Nashville’s main stage.  

Meghan Patrick

Her rise to fame started at the ripe old age of 13, when she co-founded an all-girl band in her hometown of Ontario, Canada and went on to open for none other than Aretha Franklin with a 10-piece funk act ––while also touring as a member of a bluegrass group. Her powerful voice and lyrical storytelling earned her back-to-back CMA “Female Artist of the Year” awards and 18 CMA Ontario awards. The Nashville-based singer-songwriter recently released her newest album, Greatest Show on Dirt, and currently has 500,000 monthly Spotify listeners. Meghan has captured fans attention with her two most popular singles, “She’s No Good for Me” and “My Left Hand.” This show-stopping performer takes her next step in her career onto the Ole Red Stage as a promising On the Rise artist you won’t want to miss.  

Chase Matthew

Making his country debut with his hit single and RIAA GOLD-certified smash, “County Line” in 2021, Chase Mathew continues to impress fans with his unique sound, entertaining lyrics, rowdy live performances, and infectious personality. The Nashville native recently joined a partnership with Warner Music Nashville in October of 2022 and released his debut song for the label, “She Loves Jesus.” Thus far, Matthew has managed to amass over 450 million global streams and over one million followers on his social media platforms. No wonder HITS Magazine has named him “One to Watch.” In February of 2022, he released his debut album, Born For This and has been busy selling out shows on his tour ever since. This year, he performed at the ACM kickoff party, is scheduled to play at Carolina Country Music Fest and Country Thunder, and on June 7, will take on Ole Red Nashville. 

For this pop-up show, Ole Red’s On the Rise artists will be joined by Tractor Supply Co’s Emerging Artists Hailey Verhaalen, Drew Hale, Tae Lewis, Cosette Smith, and Austin McNeil.  These artists competed with rising stars across the country and were selected as the top five to be recognized by Tractor Supply as artists you need to know.

Come down to Ole Red Nashville for this free show featuring some of Ole Red’s favorite new artists. And stick around later in the week for Spotify House at Ole Red for four days of nonstop, next-level country music.
