When Kimes shared her performance of Coors Light live at WDVX's Blue Plate Special in Knoxville, TN, she didn't expect the viral whirlwind that followed. Within a week, Coors Light totaled over 4 million views across her social media platforms. Thousands of requests poured in from new listeners - they want the studio single. In a mere three days time, Kimes jumped to the call and took her band into RCA Studio A with producer Phillip Smith. Within just three weeks of its internet debut, Coors Light was available for all to enjoy. Kimes has gone above and beyond to match the unnerving pace of social media's whims without compromising on the quality or authenticity expected from her loyal fanbase. 


With influences like Prine, Hartford, and Tom T. Hall, Coors Light is imbued with an upbeat sense of joy and gratitude. Paying homage to her grassier roots, the song is powered by a ripping mandolin (Tristen Norfleet) leading the charge of her usual country outfit: pedal steel (Nick Larimore), upright bass (Miles Burger), acoustic guitar (Kimes), and drums (Aksel Coe). Coors Light has clearly sparked a universal joy among its listeners as new fans have come together with a frequent comment, “I never liked country music until I heard this”. 


Kimes was born and raised on the lakeshores of northern Michigan. As a rural midwest native her music is built on folk festivals, family harmony, and the barefoot back roads always taken. Chloe has built a strong Michigan following touring every small Mitten town since she was fourteen years old, but relocated to Nashville, TN in 2016 to continue her work as a professional singer, songwriter, bandleader, and recording artist.


The Nashville based singer-songwriter is actively defining the next generation of folk-singing troubadours with an old-soul sensibility for storytelling in a spirited alt-country outfit. She released her debut album in 2022, a strikingly live self-titled with rafter reaching vocals and songwriting that garnered her comparisons to the likes of Lucinda Williams (Jonathan Frahm, For Folk’s Sake) and landed her a spot on NPR Music's Top 10 Nashville Artist's on the rise in 2022. Since then, the record has also been awarded Listener’s Choice Album of the Year by her home state’s WYCE Radio Jammie Awards. Following in the footsteps of many Michigan artists looked up to throughout her career, (Billy Strings, Lindsay Lou, The Accidentals, to name a few) Kimes continues to forge the Michigan-native-Nashville-based pipeline with an electric band not to be missed.
