Ottawa’s Kira Isabella continues her meteoric rise in country music with a new record deal. The 20 year old “little girl with the big voice” has achieved another benchmark in her career with a signing to Nashville’s HitShop Records.
Kira started singing at age 7 and hasn’t looked back since. One of the youngest artists signed to Sony Music Entertainment here in Canada back in 2009, she’s scored major airplay with her hits, “Love Me Like That” and “A Little More Work”. Those hits and the resultant public acceptance have translated into award nominations and wins. In 2012, she walked away with the Rising Star award at the CCMA’s. In May of 2013 she won the CMAO’s Female Artist of the Year at the inaugural CMAO awards show. Then in September, she scored the big prize: The CCMA Female Artist of the Year. She spent the fall touring with and opening for Carrie Underwood.
Now she’s poised for the next step – releasing in the US market. To do that, she’s co-written (with Jason Phelps) and recorded a Christmas vehicle – “A Country Boy For Christmas” – as her first release on HitShop Records.
We’d wish her luck, but it doesn’t look like she’ll need it! She seems to make her own.
