2017 is turning out to be quite a year for Katie Austin. She was a top five finalist in the national Folgers Jingle Contest in which she co-wrote a jingle called, “Rise And Shine”. With that momentum, Austin isn’t slowing down for the holidays just yet! This week she celebrated the digital release of her original, upbeat Christmas song, “Wrap Me Baby,” available now on iTunes, Spotify and digital retailers.
Earlier this year Austin also released her breakout single “Broken Record” and chose to enter it into the national Nash Next competition affiliated with NASH FM, Cumulus Media, Big Machine Label Group and Country Inns and Suites. After several months and rounds of the competition, which included fan participation and live performance judging, she landed a spot in the top ten finals judged by Kix Brooks of Brooks & Dunn, Songwriter Hall Of Fame writer Desmond Child, chart-topping entertainer Brantley Gilbert, Big Machine Label Group’s president/CEO Scott Borchetta and Cindy Watts of the Tennessean.
