Katie Pruitt is a young, talented, and fiercely passionate songwriter within Nashville’s music community. Hailing from a small town outside of Atlanta, Georgia, Katie wholeheartedly embraced her new city. For the past three years she has swiftly built a reputation around her dynamic vocals and soulful, bluesy sound that makes her stand out in a city full of talent.
Katie has been working long and hard towards her goal of releasing music to the world, and plans to debut a number of live takes of her original songs in 2018. Alongside the recording process, Katie graces the numerous stages around Nashville on a regular basis.
Splitting her time between writing songs and waiting tables, Katie wasted no time getting her foot in the door of Nashville’s music scene. Katie’s first big break was in the fall of 2016 when she landed a Tuesday night residency at The Basement where she truly started to see her fan base explode. Not long after that, she charmed her way on to the Music City Roots stage in Franklin, Tennessee and fostered a relationship that secured her a spot on Nashville’s Americana Festival lineup.
Katie’s talent and progress did not go unnoticed by the entertainment industry and in 2016 she was awarded the first annual BMI Songwriting Scholarship for her original song Ordinary. In 2017 she was the honored recipient of the Buddy Holly Prize, previously won by the likes of Emily King and Ben Howard, through the Songwriter Hall of Fame. Recently, Katie signed to Round Hill Music Publishing and played Pilgrimage Festival alongside headliners Justin Timberlake and Eddie Vedder.
