Country music’s ultimate storyteller Erin Enderlin kicked off her summer with quite the successful night at the 2nd Annual Arkansas Country Music Awards (ACMA) on Monday, June 3. Heralding the musical talents of Arkansas’ very own, Enderlin took home accolades for Female Vocalist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year and Song of the Year for “World Without Willie” alongside co-writers Alex Kine, Leslie Satcher and Tara Thompson.

“I am so proud of my Arkansas roots,” says Enderlin, who was nominated for a total of six ACMA awards this year. “There is such a rich musical history of storytelling and artistry, and you can see that influence today. There is just something extra special about having my music embraced at home. I loved getting to share the evening with so many friends and to get to celebrate together and it’s really exciting to see the country music scene flourishing in Arkansas.” 

The wins continue quite the streak for Enderlin, who also came home with Songwriter of the Year and Album of the Year at the ACMAs last year. The successful night also served as the perfect way to kick off CMA Fest for Enderlin, who joined the ranks of artists such as Ashley McBryde and Morgan Wallen named to 
Rolling Stone’s acclaimed list of “25 Must See Free Shows” at the annual music fest in Nashville. Enderlin played at a number of events throughout the week, including CMA Party for a Purpose and a Fan Appreciation Show, CMA Fest Nashville Acoustic Corner and the CMA Fest House Party.

About Erin Enderlin
The last few years have been especially busy for singer-songwriter Erin Enderlin. While she first turned heads as a godsend to those aching for an artist with some golden-era country backbone, Enderlin’s acclaimed 2017 record Whiskeytown Crier cemented her as something even more: a literary songwriter and superb vocal stylist with a knack for sharply drawn––and often sad––characters. Named a member of the 2018 CMT Next Women of Country class and recipient of 2018 and 2019 Arkansas Country Music Awards, she has surged to the forefront of new artists rooted in the genre’s rich history. Enderlin is also a go-to writer for stars looking for heavyweight country with classic panache––Alan Jackson’s “Monday Morning Church,” Lee Ann Womack’s “Last Call,” Luke Bryan’s “You Don’t Know Jack” and a host of other songs recorded by Randy Travis, Joey + Rory, Reba McEntire, Terri Clark, Whisperin’ Bill Anderson and more are all Enderlin-penned.
