Country Artist Kristine Wriding brings a touch of “classic” back to today’s country music – a style described as relatable, authentic and honest; these words are proven time and time again throughout her most recent Album “Just The Beginning”. Each song capturing a glimpse of more to come from this talented recording artist.
Wriding’s music has already gained the attention of multiple Nashville publishers, radio stations and iconic music festivals such as The Heartland Stampede in Topeka, KS and The Minnesota State Fair where she has performed multiple times and gained life-long fans.
Wriding’s music is featured on national and international radio stations such as 102.9 The Wolf, 104.9 Hot Country and Country in the UK. She has graced the stages of multiple venues throughout the United States including venues in California, Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, North Dakota, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee, Texas and North Carolina.
“I feel blessed to be able to share my music with so many people throughout the U.S. and I look forward to what the future holds!” says Wriding “I love sharing the joy of music with others!”
Hailing from the great state of Minnesota, Wriding’s musical journey began in church as a little girl singing in the children’s choir, which then gave her courage to move on to church solos, singing in school performances and musicals and eventually leading her into regular gigs singing out in the community and becoming a worship leader at her church.
“I remember my first full-time gig was playing at a sandwich shop in Blaine, Minnesota called “Potbelly’s”. I got paid in sandwiches and tips. I can still remember the excitement I felt the first time I made 25 dollars in tips!” Wriding says fondly “I left that evening feeling like I won the lottery! I’ll never forget the impact of that moment and I’ll never forget where I came from or where I started. We all have to start somewhere.”
Kristine’s first Country Album, “Love & Laughter” was released in 2011, just before her big move to Nashville, TN where she began refining her craft of performing and songwriting on Music Row.
A second County Album, “Real Country Girl” followed in 2014 which began Wriding’s extensive touring schedule where she began to gain a national-wide following. In 2016, by request of her fans, Wriding released a Christian Hymn CD, “Hymns from the Heart” comprised of 10 fan voted hymns.
“I love to find ways to give back to my fans and have them be a part of my musical journey. It was such an awesome experience getting their input and bringing them along on my fan-voted Hymn Album.”
In 2018 Wriding released her most recent Country Album, “Just The Beginning,” and what a beginning it was! She hit the road again playing at multiple music festivals, venues and radio stations and gaining new fans and making an even bigger name for herself.
Wriding is now busy balancing touring and working on new music that will be released in late 2020. She can’t wait to share the growth and inspiration she has gained since releasing her last Album and looks forward to bringing her fans along for another chapter in her musical journey.
