Kaitlyn Baker, referred to as a modern day “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” has a pure country voice that rings true and her songwriting rivals Nashville’s finest. Baker’s debut single “Burn” charted on Music Row’s Breakout Chart in 2015 and inspired the creation of Kaitlyn Baker’s BURN sauce, a hot sauce produced by Pepper Palace in Sevierville, Tenn.

Her follow up singles “Coal Train” and “To Pieces” garnered national attention on music industry charts and media outlets. Her self-penned “Heart of Appalachia” song was adopted as the official theme song of the Heart of Appalachian Tourism Authority, a nonprofit organization that promotes tourism.

Baker has performed coast to coast, and has opened for Bard Paisley, Craig Morgan, Brett Eldredge, Travis Tritt, Billy Currington, Chase Bryant, Rhonda Vincent, Jim Lauderdale and many others. Whether you want a high-energy show or a down home acoustic performance, Kaitlyn delivers.”
