In March, hard-working and respected singer-songwriter Kelsey Waldon's labors paid off in a grandiose way: John Prine offered her a spot on his Oh Boy Records label -- and from the Grand Ole Opry stage, no less!

Waldon's wasting no time now that she's signed, either: Her next album, White Noise / White Lines, which she co-produced with Dan Knobler, is due out in the fall. It'll be her third record, following 2016's I've Got a Way and 2014's The Goldmine.

If the surprise news of Waldon's Oh Boy signing left you curious about her music and her backstory, we're here to help. Press play on her preferred musical entry point, "All By Myself," and read on to learn more about the self-professed voice of "bluegrass country soul."
