Kylie Harris


After releasing two albums and receiving widespread acclaim in her native New Zealand, Kylie Harris decided to bring her talent to Nashville in the Spring of 1998. Her music can best be described as a “rootsy” mix of Americana and Country. An accomplished singer, writer and instrumentalist, Kylie began singing and playing guitar at 13. First-time listeners and longtime fans alike, are drawn in by her honest and soulful delivery, which has been compared to Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Linda Ronstadt , Roseanne Cash and the great Patsy Cline.

Her accomplishments started in Gore, where 17-year-old Kylie became the youngest-ever winner of the overall Gold Guitar Award. She also won the categories that year for best Gospel, Traditional and Female Vocal. This high-profile win eventually lead to a recording contract with BMG. Her second album, Fancy, also took top album honors at those same awards two years later. All this success and recognition lead her to tour throughout New Zealand and Australia as the opening act for Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs, The Irish Rovers and Charley Pride.

Her meeting with Charley Pride proved to be instrumental in Kylie’s career. His recommendation and faith in her abilities lead to her debut on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in 2001. Charley forfeited one of his performance spots so that Kylie could be heard. She became reacquainted with that stage again in 2004, when once more she was asked to perform. To this day, Charley...“Kylie has it all. The voice, the talent, the personality and the looks, to be a big star”.

In 2003, her singing and personable manner caught the attention of the television network, Great American Country. They invited her to host her own daily show called, On The Edge of Country, a program that caters to fans of Americana/Roots music. Kylie can be seen ten times a week and her show reaches a viewing audience consisting of more than 34 million homes in North America.

Her independent self-titled CD, released in 2004, has also received numerous awards, once again taking home New Zealand Country Album of the Year, and Best Country Song of the Year at the New Zealand Music and Entertainment Awards 2005. Her music video Love Letters, from that same album, is currently being aired on Great American Country and in Australia on Country Music

Today Kylie finds herself juggling time between live performances, taping On the Edge of Country, touring as a member of Patty Loveless’ Band (where she provides acoustic guitar, mandolin and background vocals), as well as continuing to write material for her next release.
