LONDON, U.K. / NASHVILLE, TN. – (June 7, 2024) – For Oklahoma-native Kaitlin Butts, getting Country Music Hall of Fame member and fellow Okie Vince Gill to sing on her new song ‘Come Rest Your Head (On My Pillow)‘ is a bit of a dream come true. Gill’s soaring tenor intertwines with Butts’ powerhouse alto on the song’s chorus, a stunning compliment to the slow-burning song. It’s a standout from Butts’ upcoming album Roadrunner!, out June 28th via Soundly Music.

“As an artist, there are accomplishments that you dream about, but to have such a legendary Okie artist like Vince Gill feature on ‘Come Rest Your Head (On My Pillow)’ is something I could have never even dreamed up,” shares Butts. “I feel so lucky to have gotten the chance to meet Vince and I feel privileged to get to say that I have one of the most angelic, iconic voices on a song of mine.”

“Unafraid to test boundaries” (Rolling Stone), Butts has a deep affinity for country music’s more theatrical side: the extravagant storytelling, dazzling showmanship, songs embedded with both unbridled emotion and quick-fire humor. After discovering her passion for performing as a little girl, the Tulsa native later brought her boundless energy and radiant voice to her own unapologetic yet soulful songwriting. When it came time to create her third album, the Nashville-based musician leaned into her lifelong love of musical theater and dreamed up a modern-day reimagining of the soundtrack to her all-time favorite musical, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! The result: a high-concept but candidly autobiographical LP called Roadrunner!, whose 17 powerhouse songs show the full force and extraordinary depth of Butts’ artistry for the very first time.

Produced by Oran Thornton (Brent Cobb, Logan Brill), Roadrunner! marks a major tonal shift from Butts’ 2022 sophomore LP what else can she do, a character-driven exploration of complex matters like addiction, domestic violence, and generational trauma. “With the last album I wanted to write about the struggles I’d seen people go through or experienced myself, so a lot of the songs had a sadness or darkness to them,” she says. “I feel like Roadrunner! is much closer to what I’m like onstage, where there’s real emotion and truth but also humor and a tendency to poke fun. It’s all those different versions of me at once.”

Made with A-list musicians like multi-instrumentalists Russ Pahl (Sturgill Simpson, Kacey Musgraves) and Lex Price (Miranda Lambert, Parker McCollum), Roadrunner! ultimately matches that multidimensionality with a lush and fiery sound informed by Butts’ eclectic influences (outlaw country, strong-minded country-pop, timeless rock-and-roll, and more).
