Once a backup singer for pop sensation Selena Gomez, Katelyn Clampett has come a long way from promoting other artists' music.
The country newcomer just dropped her debut single “The Trouble with the Truth" and its pop country appeal and catchy chorus already has fans buzzing. Clampett's single is a brutally honest and vulnerable song that will provide audiences with a perfect introduction to her as an artist, producer and songwriter. The tune is also extremely addicting and will have listeners soon playing the track on repeat. You can listen to Clampett's single “The Trouble with the Truth" below:
What helps to make Clampett so unique is her ability to explore topics unapologetically and to discuss things that other artists or songwriters may shy away from. “As an artist, I want to be 100% authentic. No lies, no gimmicks, no twisting, no facade. As a writer, I want to say the things other people would, and do, shy away from. I'm unabashedly obsessed with the truth, and I wrote this song as a way to be fully honest with myself, with my relationships and my experiences… to just let the cat out of the bag, and to encourage other people to do the same. I love country music, and in a world of trucks, beer and red dirt roads, I wanted to say something different…something real…something that I might be a little afraid to put out."
Clampett's dynamic range is put on full display with her debut single as well as her genre-versatility and prolific writing. The country singer's musical talent has taken her all over the world, performing with top artists in pop and country music, and garnering praise from the likes of Victoria Beckham, Vince Gill, and Kara Dioguardi. She has shared the stage with some of today's top artists, such as Ariana Grande and
Vince Gill, and has spent the past few years opening for top country, including Dan + Shay, Love
and Theft, Gloriana, Kip Moore, and many others.
