Review: Katie Fee Intoxicates Us With "Haven't Even Poured the Whiskey"

Country singer/songwriter Katie Fee’s love of music stems from an early age, in which she listened to ‘90s country artists such as Shania Twain, Faith Hill, and Deana Carter. In the Fall of 2017, Katie left her hometown of Sioux Falls, SD to attend Belmont University in Nashville, TN, where she studied music business. Since moving to Music City, Katie has thrown herself into Nashville’s songwriting community, co-writing with other songwriters and playing in writers’ rounds around town.

While she fuses influences of past and present, country, rock, and pop, the South Dakota native still strives to stay true to country music’s storytelling roots. Whether the song’s about love, heartbreak, having a good time, or working hard, Katie weaves the listener through a story along the way.

Her most recent release, "Haven't Even Poured the Whiskey," (co-written with Sammy Kay and Paige King Johnson) is one of our favorite country songs right now. The single combines Katie's soft, Jewel-esque vocals with the grittiness of a Gretchen Wilson song.

🎶 My head is starting to spin, my hands are starting to shake, my words are tangled up and I can't seem to think straight 🎶

"At the end of Sammy Kay's birthday party, everyone was getting ready to leave and her mom looked over at a bottle of whiskey and said, Oh, we didn't even open the whiskey." Katie shares. My songwriter brain lit up, so I wrote it down knowing I had a write scheduled with Sammy and Paige King Johnson the next Monday. We took that idea and ran with it!"

Katie Fee has previously been compared to two of her favorite artists, Eric Church and Taylor Swift. We look forward to watching her soar, just like her idols have.
