Atlanta-based singer/songwriter Carly Burruss is one of the new faces of traditional country music. Over the past two years, Carly performed “We Were Us” with Keith Urban on the Raise Em Up Tour, opened for Dwight Yoakam at Atlanta Symphony Hall, and played two music festivals alongside Florida-Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Jason Derulo, Flo Rida, Dustin Lynch, Frankie Ballard, and RaeLynn. Drawing from personal experience and growing up in a small town, Carly’s songs reflect the lives of those she grew up around. Paired with her wit, humor, and grit, her infectious melodies and memorable one-liners are reminiscent of her influences like Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, and Kacey Musgraves. Her self-titled debut EP is available everywhere now, and you can catch Carly and her band playing shows all across the Southeast.
