The Knoxville-born, Alabama-raised Ryan Kinder, who boasts over 50 million streams without ever having released an album, has been critically praised for his 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, while Spotify included his viral hit “Close” in their Best of 2017 playlist. Kinder has also been named an Artist to Watch by Google Play, CMT and AXS. Billboard, who gave him the Artist to Watch title last year, 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.
