Powerhouse entertainer Kristen Merlin is altering the way we hear country music with the likes of Dan+Shay and Kane Brown. She has a timbre so unique and unmatched, such as Reba McEntire, Rascal Flatts, and Jennifer Nettles. Kristen has had the pleasure of joining Kellie Pickler, Bryan White, Ty Herndon, Jennifer Nettles, and Shakira on stage.
In 2014, Kristen found herself performing for millions of fans on NBC’s Emmy Award winning show The Voice. During this time, Kristen’s electrifying personality and angelic vocals left team leader, Shakira, and major Merlin fan, Jennifer Nettles, with one word to describe each performance: “Beautiful”.
Following The Voice tour, Kristen released Boomerang which peaked at #2 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. With the EP’s success, Kristen hit the road once again finding herself in a variety of venues across the United States.
