Episode was conducted as the COVID-19 quarantine got underway
Independent country artist Paige King Johnson moved from her native North Carolina to Nashville to pursue her songwriting and singing dreams. She has hung out at the famous Bluebird Café and has opened for chart topping artists like Scotty McCreery, Neal McCoy, Luke Pell, and James Otto.
Her current single, “Water Down the Whiskey” channels the sensitivity of Kacey Musgraves while dishing out the unapologetic nerve of Miranda Lambert. Johnson’s confident ownership of her craft is a direct result of the compelling female staples she grew up on — females who have at times strayed from the mainstream path to carve their own. With a heartfelt conviction to write genuine songs she can be proud of for years to come, Johnson is ready to go down any path that calls her name – as long as she can walk it in her favorite pair of boots.
Paige King Johnson chats with Buddy Iahn and Matt Bailey about her career, aspirations and what she’s been doing back home to pass the time during the COVID-19 quarantine.
