Kellie Lynne rocks her new Beaver Dam tank!

Ask anyone in the country music business about keys to success, and they’ll always mention “networking” as a top requirement.

You won’t find rising country star Kellie Lynne arguing with that.

Kellie’s new single, “Dirt Cheap” is already getting plenty of airplay. And she probably never would’ve had the opportunity to record it if not for networking. “I went with a friend to Thompson Square’s No. 1 party,” she said. From there she “connected with someone on Facebook who worked for a song pitching company.” That social media connection led to a pitch session, where she came away with demo CD of song possibilities.

The more she listened to “Dirt Cheap,” the more she loved it. The song chronicles empowerment following a painful break-up. “I’ve had a great reaction to it,” she said, adding that fans have told her it’s helped them through their own similar situations. “And it connected with me,” she added. That’s obvious, considering Kellie’s soulful, heartfelt vocal.

It’s also notable that “Dirt Cheap” has pretty good parents. It was written by Nashville songwriting powerhouses Hillary Lindsey (“Jesus Take the Wheel”, “A Little Bit Stronger”, “American Honey”), Dallas Davidson (“Put a Girl In It”, “I Don’t Want this Night to End”) and superstar Luke Bryan.

She recorded it in Brentwood, Tenn., with Producer Marc Eric. “Marc played all the instruments, except the drums,” Kellie said. She has Jeremiah Bivins to credit with the drum work.

The new single is featured on two iHeartRadio stations — The Nashville Channel and New Country — as well as a “ton of indie stations” Kellie noted. She filmed the video at a farmhouse in Mt. Juliet, Tenn., with director Michael Monaco. You can see it on TCN (The Country Network). You can also see it here.

We love this picture mostly because it shows Kellie doing what she does best. But check out the guy behind the band. We hope there wasn’t an open manhole.

Kellie’s hard work has already paid off for her since moving from Pittsburgh to Nashville in 2010. She was recently named Nashville Universe Female Vocalist of the Year. She was also nominated for Entertainer of the Year by the same organization. Nashville Universe is owned by musician Michael Kenney. (www.nashvilleuniverse.com)

Never one to take a break, Kellie has been writing constantly lately. Plus, within a few weeks, she will host one of the “Breaking Out” segments on the nationwide TV network TCN (The Country Network.)

She has opened shows for Loretta Lynn, John Michael Montgomery, Mark Wills, Chris Cagle, Trent Tomlinson, Aaron Tippin, Cody McCarver and Emerson Drive to name a few.

Kellie brought the house down during a live presentation of “Showtime at The Apollo”, receiving a standing ovation after singing “Broken Wing.” You really need to watch this.

“Dirt Cheap” is her first video. Earlier singles included “I’m There” and “Bad.” Both received airplay on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio.
