After a summer break, we’ve been blessed in recent weeks to be joined by truly amazing people who serve the Kingdom in different but incredible ways. Today is no different with Hannah Kerr joining us for a revealing look at the life of a “new artist”.

She’s a full time student, but is also committed to writing, recording and touring as a professional singer. While she’s no stranger to Nashville and the music industry, Hannah’s career is only getting started. She doesn’t think of herself as an “international recording artist”, but with chart topping songs in Canada and the U.S. and a growing worldwide audience, Hannah can speak to the incredible outreach God provides when one is faithful in lifting up His name.

What we talk about:

  • Being a new artist in a community of her heroes
  • Growing up in Buffalo then moving to Nashville
  • ‎Her current college courses and how they could help her career
  • Touring with Casting Crowns, who happened to be the first concert she ever went to
  • Hannah’s dream collaboration
  • Hearing her music on the radio for the first time
  • Hannah’s song writing process, and her family’s support
  • Co-writing with Matt Maher and other artists
  • The encouragement provided in the Christian music community
  • ‎Playing with a band and acoustic sets with her brother
  • Tour life and how every show is different
  • Lessons and stories from her first tour
  • ‎What Hannah is listening to these days
