"This is going to be a pop star if it were up to me, she has that potential. Every note she sings is pure and beautifully with the guitar."
With eight years of vocal experience, 30+ awards in country music, and two guitars under her belt, four-time “Songwriter of the Year" and five-time "New Country Female Entertainer of the Year” Kristi Hoopes is creating the country music of tomorrow – today.
Born on Valentine’s Day, this Colorado native found her love for the stage at the age of 2, entertaining everyone from atop the family room coffee table. Her passion for singing presented itself during her 3rd grade talent show while singing Loretta Lynn’s version of Nancy Sinatra’s, “These Boots Are Made For Walking”.
Later that year, Kristi was recruited by a musical theater troupe and began to develop her skills as a live performer. But in the back of her mind, she felt as though a piece of her was missing, which she would discover in the hand-written lyrics and chord charts scattered about her bedroom floor; that piece was her love for writing country music.
When asked why she loves to make music:
"I fell in love with being a storyteller, and that's what I hope my music does. Once I
finish a song, it’s not mine anymore. It’s your song. It’s about whoever made you fall in love or broke your heart. My main goal is to create music that not only speaks to me,but to all my fans. I want to remind people of the good times and laughter, but I also want to get them through the struggles and heartaches that life brings. I want listeners to feel like someone is telling their story."
