I’ve Got A Way
By: Julia Cirignano
Kelsey Waldon bleeds country music. Catch her latest album I’ve Got a Way, which exhibits both her authenticity and the ways in which she has been influenced by classic country musicians. Waldon is the real deal — born and raising in Ballard County, Kentucky. She played the Nashville bar scene for a while, then went to Belmont University where she studied songwriting and music business.
More positive and refined than her 2014 debut release Goldmine, I’ve Got a Way is a sincere country album with empowering and motivating lyrics. With sweet twang, steel guitar, and a precious smile, Waldon uses her youthful energy to move the crowds at her shows. She is a talented and intelligent woman with an articulate approach to the 2016 country music industry by choosing to educate, refine her skills, and earn her place.
Kelsey Waldon truly does have a way to create a country album that shows her respect and admiration for classic country music. Modern country music is often criticized for being too pop, or not fitting into the genre for other reasons. Waldon is taking an old, yet still noble, approach to country music that she should be praised for.
