Nashville, TN (May 17, 2021)
This past year has been a transformative one for Riley Clemmons, from completing her new album, Godsend, to performing multiple weekends on Winter Jam 2020 and releasing the fastest growing single of her career, “Keep On Hoping,” which has amassed over 5 million streams since its March release. Now, that work pays off for the multi-talented Capitol CMG recording artist who received her first K-Love Fan Awards nomination for Female Artist of the Year, making her the youngest artist to be nominated in K-LOVE Fan Awards history at 21-years-old. In addition to her nomination, Riley will be presenting at this year’s awards which air June 4th on TBN.
“It’s truly a privilege to be nominated alongside such incredibly talented artists and creatives,” shares Riley. “I’m honored and humbled to not only be among those representing women in Christian music but to also be representing young voices in the industry. I’m so very grateful to K-LOVE and the fans for the continued love and support!”
Last month, Riley announced the June 4th release of her much-anticipated album, Godsend. The 12-track collection of songs honors the trials and seasons of struggle that she has gone through to ultimately recognize that even those moments were a Godsend that allowed her to become the person she is today. The latest single from the album, “Keep On Hoping,” has become Riley’s fastest growing single thus far, garnering over 5 million streams across digital platforms in its first 8 weeks and climbing into the Top 20 on the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart.
Riley Clemmons is a 21-year-old artist from Nashville, TN who has accumulated over 210 million global streams and 50 million YouTube video views since the beginning of her almost decade long career. After spending years honing her craft in writers’ rooms, Riley sky-rocketed onto the scene with her 2017 Capitol CMG debut single “Broken Prayers,” which has generating over 30 million global streams since its release. Her 2018 self-titled debut quickly entered the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart, debuting at No. 13. An accomplished composer, performer, producer, and recording artist, Riley draws inspiration from life experiences, blending musical influences ranging from pop to classic rock to create music that is as catchy as it is relatable.
