About this event

Kaitlin Butts

Full of reflection, daydreaming contemplation, sharp wit, tough decisions in the midst of dire situations, rosy love, and beaming growth, What Else Can She Do finds Country music’s Kaitlin Butts in full bloom. Behind her flowing locks of auburn hair, Oklahoma twang, and a wry grin, grows a devastating storyteller and an equally demanding, radiant voice.

Following up her charming debut Same Hell, Different Devil and a diverse run of singles–the cosmic dancer “Marfa Lights,” the haunting murder ballad “White River,” the sweet tranquility of “How Lucky Am I,” and the enigmatic disco fever dream “White River (Remix)–What Else Can She Do has Butts delivering a collection of delicate, strong, and gallant characters and transformative storytellers.

What Else Can She Do is a visceral display of just how raw and mighty words and actions can be–and how sometimes, knowing when to walk away can be just as compelling as holding on. Inspired by the resilience and humility displayed by the women in her life, Butts’ latest is a welcoming nod and saving grace. Time and again, she demands to be seen and heard as an artist, storyteller, and woman.

Meg McRee

I tried really hard not to be a musician. As soon as I graduated high school in Sugar Hill, GA, I moved to Nashville to attend Vanderbilt University. I grew up playing violin and was writing songs in my bedroom, but I kept any daydreams I had about playing music full time at an arms length. While I was in college, I started doing internships in the music business because I convinced myself that just being around it would be enough for me. One day during my senior year, I was typing someone else’s lyrics into a computer and something inside of me snapped. I knew I would always regret it if I didn’t at least try.

Right after graduation in 2018 I got a waitressing job at night so I could write songs during the day. On my nights off I would go play writer’s rounds around town and meet people to write with. Before too long I found myself in an incredible community of artists and friends. Being surrounded by people that inspired me so much made me want to work even harder. In 2021, I signed my first publishing deal with Hang Your Hat Music, a co-venture with Concord Music started by Hillary Lindsey, an absolute hero of mine. Since then, I have had the opportunity to make music both on and off stage with my heroes every day. I’m currently working on my debut project and am beyond excited to get it out into the world. Here’s to the dreams that keep us up at night.
