“Not all great love stories have an ever after,” says Katrina Burgoyne. “I wrote Tennessee after feeling like I had found my place in the world. I’ve always fallen for people just out of my grasp.”
The lyrics “I’m gonna love you and I’m gonna set you free, but if you ever wanna come to Tennessee” mark a moment of growth as a women for Katrina and staying true to herself while moving forward on her own journey.
“Tennessee is about lovingly letting someone go but leaving the door open just a crack,” she says, “giving a man room to take the lead and show he cares by showing up on your doorstep.” This theory proved a success when her now boyfriend and producer Steve Kinney journeyed to Australia to ask her to be his girlfriend.
Katrina and Steve have seen two recent releases, It All Falls Down and 25 Cents in the Ashtray. “We make a great team” said Katrina.
Moving to Nashville in January 2017, Katrina has been working on her craft, writing hundreds of songs. Raised in regional New South Wales, she has been tagged as Nashville's newest up and coming singer–songwriter to watch.
As a songwriter, Katrina has secured indie and major label cuts across three continents (North America, Australia and UK) and four countries (Australia, New Zealand, USA and Ireland). She has seen her songs top the iTunes Charts in New Zealand, Australia, the Shazam chart in Ireland and featured on Fresh Country and New Nashville Spotify playlists.
