With the help of her father who kicked started her career, Corinne McKnight set out to pursue her music further. After dipping her toe in theatre as a child, Corinne applied to The Artist Development Network. There she was able to collaborate with other songwriters and find her own voice.
Inspired by the works of Maren Morris and Kacey Musgraves along with pop artists Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran, Corinne’s music blends pop with country. Now living in Music City where she recently graduated from Belmont University, she’s ready to take her music to the next level. Giving her songs a personal touch, Corinne recently released “Pretty Flowers.” The track which she has been able to perform at various venues including The Row and The Bowery Vault.

The name Hannah Ellis is becoming a household name. Having grown up to parents who were wedding singers themselves, Hannah has always been encouraged to use her voice to tell a story. Her inspiration came not only from her parents, but from her idols Martina McBride and Shania Twain.

Hannah’s latest release “Your Women” reflects on her long-lasting relationship with boyfriend and fellow musician, Nick Wayne.
Currently on the CMT Next Women of Country Tour with Cassadee Pope and Clare Dunn, Hannah is grateful to be performing with two women who constantly encourage one another. Continuing to perform into the summer, Hannah will make an appearance at CMA Fest, Windy City Smokeout, and the Country Boom Music Festival.

I am currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles as a marketing major. Upon realizing that I wanted to change the way people perceive country music and to help women have a voice, I began The Women of Country in 2015 promoting new female artists and sharing their stories with the world.
