The latest single from Kenny Foster – ‘Copy, Paste, Repeat’ (out now)
KennyFoster has today (July 8) shared ‘Copy, Paste, Repeat’, the brand new single from his forthcoming release, Somewhere In MiddleAmerica, and the follow up to ‘Poor Kids’ and the album’s title track. Listen to ‘Copy, Paste, Repeat’ here.
“I think it’s beautiful when people find what they want early in life. Love, career, kids, home, etc. Enviable even,” says Kenny. “And for the select few that happens for: congrats, that’s awesome. Only, this song isn’t about them.
“This song is about the underside of that coin. The folks who grow bitter, or angry, or sad about the hand they’ve been dealt. Some people leave before they become those folks. Some people get stuck before they realize that they are those folks. I have a great amount of empathy for this plight, and that empathy breeds a good amount of disdain for the fact that this is anyone’s story. Breaks my heart. I bet it breaks yours too.”
Invited to host an International Writers’ Round on the Close Up Stage at CMA Fest in Nashville last month featuring artists from around the world, Foster shared the stage with Twinnie (UK), Max Jackson (Australia) and Kaylee Bell (New Zealand).
In August, he will make his highly anticipated return to the UK, with a main stage performance at Millport Festival in Scotland (Aug 19-20) alongside Drake White, Sarah Darling, Sunny Sweeney, Ruthie Collins and more, along with a performance at Birmingham Symphony Hall as part of Nashville Sounds in the Round:
