“Kären McCormick will be a household name.

Lyric Magazine

Brazzaville, Congo native Kären (pronounced CAR-in) McCormick has always had a
passion for music. Growing up in the state of Washington, her father encouraged
her to join the church choir at a young age. She discovered her love for country
music at age eleven, after hearing Taylor Swift’s hit song “Tim McGraw” on the
radio — soon after she began begging her father for a guitar.

McCormick would recieve a guitar for Christmas two years later, and was immediately
bitten by the songwriting bug and wrote her first song in an hour and a half.

McCormick began posting her performances on YouTube, catching the attention of
many new fans including country music recording artist Walker Hayes,
who personally asked McCormick to perform with him on The Unapologetically Tour after seeing
her cover of his song “Halloween.”
One year later, Hayes asked McCormick to perform alongside him again for two dates of his headlining
“Dream On It” Tour.
Her videos have since been viewed over 850,000 times.

Inspired by the likes of Carrie Underwood and Faith Hill, McCormick began to release original music.
“We Were on Fire,” an autobiographical country-pop track, was released in August 2018 with rave reviews from fans and press.

The follow-up, “Dancing With Him Tonight”, was released in February 2019.
Daring with an air of mystery, the self-penned single exclusively premiered on Taste of Country, who dubbed it
‘hypnotic, sultry pop-country”.
The track has since amassed over 50,000 streams on Spotify.

McCormick is set to release her debut EP in 2020.
