The Knoxville-born, Alabama-raised Ryan Kinder, who boasts over 30 million streams on Spotify alone, has been critically praised for his vocal prowess, vulnerable songwriting and nimble guitar playing. Billboard, who named him an Artist to Watch in 2017, shared the music video for his latest single “Still Believe in Crazy Love,” noting the way it’s taking his career “to a different level, one that's deeper than any radio hit could provide.” The Warner Bros. Records / Warner Music Nashville artist has co-written with some of Nashville’s most successful writers, including Josh Osborne, Ashley Gorley, Ross Copperman, and Chris DeStefano, and has shared the stage with Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, Brett Eldredge and Zac Brown, who personally handpicked him for the Great American Road Trip Tour. Kinder is currently writing and co-producing his debut album with multi-award-winning songwriter/producer Ross Copperman and multiple Grammy Award-winning producer Paul Worley.
