Kelsey Waldon Releases New Single, Announces NC Tour Dates

Published

Kelsey Waldon is no stranger to calling it as she sees it. Over the years, her songs have been honest observations of real-life, in the trenches issues; small-town woes, prescription drug addiction, and all manners of heartbreak have been on Waldon’s chopping block.  Yesterday, Nylon premiered what may be Waldon’s most matter-of-fact, hitting close to home composition to date, “Sunday’s Children.” “Essentially, that tune was inspired by how I felt about people using religion and God in the name of hate,” Waldon told Nylon. “I grew up in the Southern Baptist church, and I was really discouraged to hear so many people instill fear in the hearts of people, that just because somebody isn’t like them, they would be afraid of this person.” “Sunday’s Children” comes as the second single fromWhite Noise/White Lines following the previously released “Anyhow,” whichGarden & Gun called a “fitting first taste of an album that should firmly establish Waldon as one of classic country’s rising torchbearers.” White Noise/White Lines will be released October 4th on John Prine’s Oh Boy Records.
