Kelsey Waldon Inks Deal With John Prine’s Oh Boy Records

Published

on

Hailing from Monkey’s Eyebrow in Ballard County, Kentucky, Kelsey Waldon is certainly no stranger to the rural, workingman’s world in which John Prine’s songs come to life. Both artists are admired for their often candid, occasionally humorous view of normal, everyday life, so when it came time for Waldon to find a home for her songs, Prine and his long-independent Oh Boy Records welcomed her with open arms. Waldon has played shows with Prine before, but none as impactful as their appearance on last night’s Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN. After performing her own Opry set, Prine called Waldon back to the stage to sing his classics “Unwed Fathers” and “Paradise” together. Following their duet, in front of a sold-out Opry audience and in honor of all the legends that have graced that stage before her, Prine announced Waldon’s new partnership with Oh Boy right in the center of the famed Opry circle.

Catch Kelsey Sept. 7 in Raleigh, NC  at  the Hopscotch Festival.
