NASHVILLE, TN (July 21, 2023) – Rising singer/songwriter Tiera Kennedy is emerging as one of the most exciting voices in the format – injecting Country music with a breath of vitality as reflected on her new single “Jesus, My Mama, My Therapist,” out today via The Valory Music Co. Co-written alongside her pals Emily Falvey, Joe Fox, Trannie Anderson and Emily Landis, the infectious tune is an ode to the holy trinity of secret keeping, as its three namesakes are the only folks who can be trusted with the truth…and trusted to love you all the more for it. As gutsy as it is playful, add “Jesus, My Mama, My Therapist” to a growing catalog that continues to pave a one-car-only lane for Tiera Kennedy in Country music.

“If you’re from a small town, you know you can’t trust everybody with your business. But, we all have that one group of people we can confide in when times get rough and for me, it’s Jesus, my mama and my therapist,” shared Tiera Kennedy. “They always give me sound advice, don’t ever judge me and I know they’ll love me unconditionally. They’re the best sounding board a girl could ask for.”

As she readies her forthcoming full-length debut album, the song offers fans a sneak peak of what’s to come while she finishes up in the studio with producers Dan Huff and Cameron Bedell. “It takes you through the journey of my life,” Tiera says of the upcoming album. “There are fun songs, sad songs, songs that make you laugh, make you cry…”
The Alabama native’s unique sound stems from equal parts nature and nurture. She credits her celestial singing voice to God, while crediting her Country music songwriting prowess to what organically flows from her pen. Lighting a fire with her independently released self-titled EP, Nashville Scene cited Tiera as “the total package” and “a writer who has learned how to write for their own voice at a young age,” while American Songwriter concurs, hailing her as “one of Nashville’s most promising young singer/songwriters.”
Formally introducing her artistry with debut single “Found It In You” (The Valory Music Co.), a poignant love song inspired by her relationship with her husband and creative director Kamren Kennedy, Tiera showed off her playful side with subsequent releases like the effervescent “Gentleman” and jubilant ode to home state soirees on “Alabama Nights.” Landing on several of 2022’s most impressive Artist to Watch Lists, including CMT’s Listen Up, MusicRow’s Next Big Thing and Pandora’s Country Artist to Watch, Tiera took those songs and more on the road, opening for artists including Kelsea Ballerini and Danielle Bradbery, while playing festivals across the country. Up next, Tiera performs in Sioux Falls, South Dakota tomorrow (7/22) before returning to Nashville for an appearance at the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix on August 5. As the host of Apple Music Country’s The Tiera Show, Tiera Kennedy puts her stamp on the genre daily.
