The Ash County Council on the Arts welcomes singer-songwriter Karlie Burruss to the Ash Center on Friday, February 11 at 7:30 p.m. Karlie Burruss performance is sure to be one you’ll never forget as she brings you laid-back comedy and witty lyrics that you won’t. Forgetful, stories taken from devastatingly grief.
With her wicked sense of humor, the heart of the narrator and a sweet nature, Karlie Burruss is the epitome of country. Her antics and tongue-in-cheek combined with her light, resilient voice make her a rising country music star who stands out from the rest.
Poros grew up combing her fingers over the keys of a piano and singing in church. The daughter of a cumming teacher and wardrobe maker, JA, her budding love of country music stems from records she found at her grandparents’ home, which consist mostly of classic country vinyl. She found her way into guitar, taught herself the strings, and hit the stage for the first time with all-girl bluegrass band The Sawnee Mountain Train Wreck.
Today, Burruss is a itinerant country artist who works as a cult leader at the Passion City Church in Atlanta. Recently, she joined the Boys from Sister Hazel on tour as the opening supporting artist. Burruss has shared the stage with other profile artists in recent years, including Keith Urban, Ruston Kelly, Eli Holcomb, Dwight Yokham, and Casey Chambers.
Burruss is in the business of honesty and conversation: one song of hers seems to sit down to a heart-to-heart meeting with your best friend. Her original words about God, family, the bottom, and finally making her up the mountain are the words we all want to sing along with her. Her 2020 EP titled “The Southern Pace” was a nod to a new era for Burruss in which her songwriting is taking her songwriting to the next level. Maintaining the scandalous quality we’ve come to love, it digs deep into your soul and your sense of humor.
