"Get Ready To Miss Me" the Newest From April Kry [Listen Here]

Inspired by the female powerhouse singers in the 90s, rising country star April Kry has released her new single “Get Ready To Miss Me.” Combined with April’s impressive vocals, the song puts a modern twist on the 90s vibe all the while celebrating female empowerment. “Get Ready To Miss Me” is available on iTunes and Spotify yesterday.

“Growing up, I remember listening to such powerful female voices that inspired and empowered me. As I was writing and searching for songs to release for my next single and EP, this one stood out to me as something that's not only modern and fun that will resonate with a younger demographic, but a song that liberates and empowers the listener to take a stand for themselves in whatever circumstance or relationship they're in,” said Kry. “This message is so important to me, and needed right now in country radio! I hope y'all love it as much as I do.”
From a young age, Kry has always looked up to 90s country singers such as Martina McBride, Faith Hill and Shania Twain. In the forthcoming video for “Get Ready To Miss Me,” Kry recreates different iconic scenes from their most known music videos to honor the singers she has looked up to the most. You can check out “Get Ready To Miss Me” via iTunes, Spotify, or by clicking here.

Believers Kayla and Kelli Iutzwig Are Ready to Share Their Music With the World

Kayla and Kelli Iutzwig may be younger than most, but this powerful sister duo is already ready to showcase their musical talent to the world. Both sisters began their journey taking dance classes and participating in theatre productions, but it wasn’t until they began taking vocal lessons at age six when they discovered their passion for singing. The two began playing covers to share on YouTube and despite their opposite personalities the sister duo was ready to take the next step, thus Wild Fire was born.

Inspired by some of country’s best, including women of country artists Miranda Lambert, Raelynn, and Kelsea Ballerini, the two aspire to write uplifting songs that showcase their youth. The duo just recently released their newest single ‘Believe’ and hope to sign with a record label in Nashville.

For now the two are taking any opportunity they can to perform and share their music. This month alone, the duo is performing at the Continental Club in Houston, TX, Fuddruckers in Nassau Bay, TX, and at Dunn Brothers Coffee Shop in Friendswood, TX. Most recently the two flew to Cleveland to film an episode of Upbeat Kidz Rock, a show that features young artists who write and perform their own music. The girls and their friends are ecstatic about Wild Fire’s television debut and hope people are able to relate to their music.

Despite their recent start in the music business, the girls are hard at work inspired by the quote “hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” You can find Wildfire’s music via YouTube, Soundcloud, and their website at http://www.wildfiresings.com/.

Mary Heather Hickman: A Storyteller Ready For The Big Leagues

A storyteller born in small town El Dorado, Mary Heather Hickman, is ready to make the move to Nashville and enter the country music scene. Though born in a small town, Mary moved to Dallas at the age of five and was quickly introduced to country music. With a musical background on her dad’s side of the family, Mary was not afraid to jump right into performing. From talent shows to singing in church, Mary's childhood was consumed by music.

More recently, Mary auditioned for The Voice and had the opportunity to perform in front of the judges. Though not chosen, due to the lack of availability on each team, Mary wowed the judges and gained enough confidence to release a new single entitled ‘Dial.’

Inspired by her friend’s and her own experiences, ‘Dial’ tells the story of one calling another they fancy while drunk, later regretting the experience. Like ‘Dial,’ Mary’s songs are relatable to her audience and tell her story as an artist. Mary aspires to be the next Kacey Musgraves and hopes to make an impact on others while doing what she does best. Mary believes that all artists should “stay true to themselves” no matter what others may tell them.

Currently Mary is in her last year of college at the University of Arkansas and ready to make the move to Nashville as soon as she graduates.

So make sure to follow this future superstar as she journeys into the next step of her life and tell me what you think by tagging @nextwomenofcountry.

Mary's music can be found via iTunes, YouTube, and by clicking here.
