As Rolling Stone so cleverly put it, Hannah Ellis, is an artist for fans of “spontaneous declarations of love.” This Kentucky native is creating forward-thinking pop-country music, with a lyric that pulls from her real life and emotions. This approach has garnered Hannah some well deserved attention in the last year, being named one of CMT’s Next Women of Country as well as one of Rolling Stone’s “Artist’s to Watch”. Her single “Home and a Hometown” premiered on CMT earlier last year, and was featured on Wild Country and New Boots on Spotify. The single went on to be played “On the Horizon” on Sirius XM as well as charting in the Top 100 on Mediabase Country Charts as an independent artist. Soon after, Ellis was featured as the Spotlight Artist on The Bobby Bones Show on the Big 98.
Growing up in her small hometown of Campbellsville, Kentucky, Hannah was singing in every local competition she could get in, eventually leading her to compete in Season 8 of The Voice. Once returning to Nashville, she signed a publishing deal with Curb|Word Entertainment. Hannah has since had songs recorded by artists like Russell Dickerson, Danielle Bradbery and most recently, the current Cassadee Pope single, “If My Heart Had a Heart”. While writing full time, Hannah continues traveling and playing shows and signed with Creative Artist Agency at the end of 2017. She has spent time on the road opening for artists such as Dwight Yoakam, Montgomery Gentry, and Devin Dawson.You can see Hannah out this year on the CMT Next Women of Country tour with Clare Dunn and Cassadee Pope.
