Arista Nashville’s Kristen Kelly made history today with her debut single. “Ex-Old Man” became the first time in Country Aircheck’s history that the debut single by a female artist topped the most-added list. Her single received 32 total adds this week on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck charts. The real-life song is a co-write by Kristen and Paul Overstreet. It’s a funny little song about a relationship gone bad.
On Saturday, May 5th, the Texas native will be making her Grand Ole Opry debut, which is kind of a big deal for the singer-songwriter:
“Getting the opportunity to play the Grand Ole Opry, if that’s the last thing I do, I would be content. It’s a part of country music history, and knowing that I’m gonna get to be a part of it is just absolutely amazing.”
Her debut album on Arista Nashville is expected later this year. Check out her single here and make sure to let us know what you think.
