Raleigh native, Kaylin Roberson is making a huge imprint on the country music scene. Since her first release in 2020, “Out of My Town”, which made its way to the top 10 in the NSAI Songwriter’s Contest and was featured on 94.7 QDR’s Homegrown Country show, she has accumulated over 2 million streams on Spotify and has had numerous videos featured on CMT.com. Kaylin’s musical inspiration comes from a wide variety of country artists like Faith Hill, Lady A, HARDY, and Kacey Musgraves. Recently, she has opened up for artists like Chris Janson, Jon Pardi, and Rae Lynn.
Kaylin’s musical journey has not always been smooth sailing. At the fragile age of 9 she was the victim of a dog attack that required life support and facial reconstruction rendering permanent scars on her face that ignited inspiration, hope and strength in her heart.
Over 200 stitches later, Kaylin found herself navigating new obstacles as a young girl in the fourth grade. Having to endure the cruelty of a lowered self-esteem along with bullying, she needed an escape. Music was the perfect cure and it continued to be that for her in her adult years.
In high school, Kaylin toured school districts across the country to share her story with students in hopes of inspiring them to chase their own dreams and stand up to the bullies of the world.
When she wasn’t touring, she was working on her craft of not only being an inspirational speaker, but also being a top tier songwriter. She played gigs at local restaurants and bars in her hometown of Raleigh, NC for years and built up a local fanbase before moving to Nashville at nineteen.
Since the move to music city, she has written over 200 songs in 3 years and has made many noteworthy accomplishments such as having songs featured on Spotify editorial playlists, being featured in American Songwriter following her single release “Big Fish", and landing her first publishing deal with Peer Music. She has also had opportunities to play some of most renown writers-rounds in Nashville, including Whiskey Jam, and Song Suffragettes, to name a couple. You can find her music on all streaming platforms.
