CountryTown in partnership with iHeartCountry Australia is proud to announce Australian-born but Nashville-based singer-songwriter, Katrina Burgoyne as our Artist Of The Week, following today’s release of her new single, Songwriter.
Speaking about the new single, she says, “I started writing this song in the dead of night with a tear rolling down my cheek. This is the most honest and vulnerable I’ve ever been in a song.”
Raised in regional New South Wales, Katrina moved to Nashville with $15,000 and a dream. Restricted by her visa to making an income solely from playing music, she hit the ground running in the most competitive music city in the world. Her previous single, 25 Cents In The Ashtray, sees her keep that promise to herself, which she followed up with the hit, Tennessee.
The two-time Golden Guitar nominee’s impressive career in the Australian country music industry includes an Australian Country Music People’s Choice Award, Australian Songwriters Association Country Song of the Year, and APRA Professional Development Award. Katrina previously tasted success with two Top 10 CMC singles Ghost and I Wasn’t Gonna Cry. Her song White Flag also peaked at #7 on CMR, while the album of the same name went Top 10 on the ARIA Country Albums chart in 2011.
She’s also written for many artists, including a track for Lisa McHugh that was the most Shazammed song in all of Ireland. Furthermore, Katrina has toured with Kasey Chambers, Shane Nicholson and Catherine Britt and opened for The McClymonts, Troy Cassar-Daley and American country music group, Lonestar.
