2024 CMT LISTEN UP ARTIST, ANGIE K, RELEASES NEW HEARTBREAK TRACK “RED DIRT ON MARS”

Published

on

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Named a CMT Next Women of Country last year, singer/songwriter Angie K first made her mark on Music City with a nod to her Latin roots when her first single, the bilingual “Real Talk,” catapulted her onto the country scene as a “Highway Find” on SiriusXM’s The Highway. Now the powerhouse vocalist is back with her first taste of new music, “Red Dirt on Mars,” available today. Listen to “Red Dirt on Mars” HERE

Set to be featured during “On The Horizon” on SiriusXM’s The Highway this weekend, the new track was produced by acclaimed writer/producer and BMI Songwriter of the Year, Stephony Smith and co-written by Angie K along with Hayden Cain, Joey Ebach and Mary Kutter, the new track takes listeners on a heartfelt journey through grief, exploring the profound sense of loss and disorientation that comes with losing someone special. 

That bottle turned empty and so did my mind 
Gravity left me, and blurred all the lines 
There’s nobody like her down here on earth 
Oh so fly me away to a place it don’t hurt 


This small town in Georgia’s all I’ve ever known
The dust and the mud and the blood and the bones 
Where’s a cowgirl to go to burn a brand off her heart? 
The man on the moon says there’s red dirt on Mars 


The 2024 CMT LISTEN UP artist has been in the studio working on new music with Smith, who penned the smash hit “It’s Your Love” for Tim McGraw/Faith Hill and has received cuts from some of music’s biggest stars, including The Chicks, Shania Twain, Barbara Streisand, Kenny Chesney, Terri Clark, Reba McEntire and more. 
 
Of the past year working on new music, Angie K shares, “This song was a big turning point for me as a writer. I returned to writing as sort of therapy for me, and it brought me so much healing.” She continues, “The songs that followed kept me on that path. This new music is for anyone looking for a place to belong and a soft place to land. My hope is this record is a safe place for anyone to fall into.”

With CMT calling her an “up-and-coming female artist to watch,” this year is certainly shaping up to be a breakout year for Angie K. Born in El Salvador and raised in Georgia, her love for country music was nurtured from a young age. Her mother’s dedication, saving up to take her to the Grand Ole Opry, has come full circle as she prepares to make her Grand Ole Opry debut on August 16, fulfilling a lifelong dream. Tickets for her debut are available now at Opry.com. 

Fans can also catch appearances from Angie K this weekend at CMA Fest on June 7 at 12:45 PM on the CMA Close Up Stage (Fan Fair X in Music City Center) and June 8 at 10:15 AM on the Reverb Stage (Bridgestone Plaza at the Corner of 5th Ave and Broadway). She will also take the main stage at Nashville Pride on June 23
