Born in Knoxville, TN and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Ryan Kinder, who boasts more than 40 million streams ahead of his to-be-released album, has been critically praised for his distinctly soulful vocal prowess, vulnerable songwriting and nimble guitar playing. Pandora has taken note of his digital domination by naming him one of its 2018 Country Artists to Watch. Billboard, who gave him the same recognition in 2017, recently shared the music video for his new 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 gritty ballad was also included as one of Amazon’s 50 Best Country Songs of 2017. Most recently, Kinder was listed among the talented breakout artists in CMT’s “18 for 2018” Listen Up program that spotlights country music’s most promising newcomers across all CMT platforms.

Kinder kicked off his 14-city headlining tour in November that will run through February 2018. For a complete list of tour dates, visit RyanKinder.com.

Records/Warner Music Nashville artist has co-written with some of Nashville’s most successful writers, including Josh Osborne, Ashley Gorley, Ross Copperman, Chris DeStefano, Tom Douglas, Jeremy Stover and Luke Sheets, 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’.
