Missouri native Halle Kearns has enjoyed a meteoric rise since the release of her debut single, Pick Me Up, last summer. With over 700,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, Kearns’ singles and debut EP reached the ears of fans in over 100 countries worldwide. She has amassed over 300 press write-ups and achieved radio play on Sirius XM’s The Highway – as well as coveted spots on Spotify’s New Boots, Hot Country and Wild Country editorial playlists. This month, the Nashville-based artist releases her new single, Plans.
Plans opens with a quirky, uplifting guitar motif that recurs throughout. Kearns has a voice like silk and it soars above the guitars as percussion kicks in. This is a pop-country anthem about young love. It relies on a catchy, guitar-driven melody and the smart lyricism Kearns’ fans have come to know and love. It’s not especially deep, but it doesn’t need to be. It’s a fun and fun-loving song ideal for the transition of spring to summer and the easing of lockdown restrictions. If I were you, I’d be making Plans to follow Halle Kearns’ star as it continues to rise.
