Kendal Conrad has an impressive singing and songwriting resume for someone so young. Based in Nashville, Kendal has actively pursued gigs including singing the national anthem for MLB, NBA, MMA, and NASCAR events. She’s had the opportunity to perform at the White House, opened for artists like Blake Shelton and Walker Hayes, and she may have sang a little duet with some guy named Keith Urban.
Kendal shares how she’s approaching the release of her music, particularly during these challenging times, and the difference between the number of songs she creates versus the ones that are distributed. We also talk about her love for a good romantic song, how a touch of pop can carry her through multiple genres, and our shared enjoyment of horror movies.
We start by talking about the music scene in her hometown vs. Nashville (06:26) and go on to discuss:
- (11:20) The nostalgia of romance
- (19:15) Singing a duet with Keith Urban
- (25:50) Experimenting on Instagram
- (34:45) Her release strategy for singles
- (42:00) Distributing music
- (44:15) Our shared love of horror movies
- (48:00) Adapting to the current challenges
“When you’re looking forward to something forever and it feels like it takes forever to get there, that day finally happened and it happened so fast.”
