From her glimmering mini skirt to her bedazzled microphone, Kristen Kelly sparkled at the inaugural Thunder on the Mountain country music festival. Currently on tour with Rascal Flatts, Kelly’s soulful, southern voice croons tales about love, love lost and, well, whiskey. “I may or may not be single thanks to Jack Daniels,” Kelly told the crowd before she belted out her catchy, unreleased tune, “When I Drink Whiskey.” Other crowd pleasers included a beautiful cover of “Angel from Montgomery” and, of course, her debut single “Ex-Old Man,” which had the audience singing and dancing along. “Life ain’t always easy, but it sure is beautiful. Never stop dreaming,” Kelly told the crowd at one point during her hour-long set. It’s pretty clear that the Lorena, Texas, native has experienced her fair share of heartache, as she later addressed the subject of having an ex-husband. Knowing what she’s been through causes her music to speak that much more loudly. A personal favorite Kristen Kelly tune, “He Loves to Make Me Cry,” is a smooth, romantic song that really shows off her range and strong vocals. It’s one of those songs that will make you want to grab your significant other and slow dance. Kelly seems like the kind of girl I’d want to be friends with. She’s genuine, she’s been through it and she’s got attitude. I feel as though she can drink with the boys while wearing heels and lipstick. Her music just makes you feel like – a woman. So, ladies, be sure to give Kristen Kelly a listen. This one’s for you. Don’t worry, boys. You can listen, too.

Kristen Kelly Is A Country Music Diva In Her Video for He Loves To Make Me Cry! When I hear Kristen Kelly‘s single “He Loves To Make Me Cry,” I am simply in awe of just how powerful her voice and talent really are! If ever there was one, Kelly has some real potential to be a “country music diva,” and I mean that in the most positive way possible. I’m talking a talented to the core, strong and confident kind of woman here, and that is just what Kristen offers up in this song and the new video that was recently released! The video keeps things simple with Kelly dressed beautifully in a tasteful but stunning floor length, slim gown on stage with an old school mic and all eyes on her. The audience is kept in profile, and except for a few complimentary scenes of a couple slow dancing, the focus is entirely on Kristin and her show stopping vocals. Great song. Great talent. Great video. See for yourself below, and be sure to keep up Kristen on Twitter! She is currently on the road playing shows with Rascal Flatts. You can find her EP on iTunes.

The Official Music Video For Kristen Kelly’s “Ex-Old Man.” I have to say right off…I’m obsessed with this song! Kristen Kelly’s “Ex-Old Man” is her current single and below is the official video for it. Kelly is currently on Brad Paisley’s Virtual Reality Tour. Although Kelly is what we call the new guy (gal), I believe she could potentially be one of the next big things! Hey, if Paisley backs you, you’ve got some talent! In her other song “He Loves To Make Cry,” she really showcases a voice that could stop people in their tracks! Again, “Ex-Old Man” is gold in my book! I know there are too many women who are going to relate to this song, but maybe listening to it will be a form of therapy? Let’s hope so!
