Jenny Harding for TSM

Kira Isabella was named the Female Artist of the Year for 2013 by the Canadian Country Music Association.  Last night she was at the Boot Grill in Loveland for K99's New From Nashville Series.

We were  all knocked out by this supremely talented teenager.  I even had a very nice lady come up to me after the show and say, "She is just as good as Carrie and Miranda". While that may be a bit of a stretch, I would not argue that Kira Isabella may very well be the future of country music.  What a wonderful talent!

This was only the 2nd performance in America for Kira and one of the 1st time's she ever heard her single, "Quarterback" on an American radio station (K99).  So, it was special for her too.  Kira was even brought to tears when a little girl sitting up front was singing every word to the song.

Here is the the video for "Quarterback" courtesy of YouTube and KiraIsabellaVEVO.

Thanks to my lovely wife Jenny and our Digital Managing Editor Jordan for taking these pictures.  The very pretty blonde girls in the pictures are Jennifer and Caroline from "The Amazing Race".  They just happen to work for Hitshop Records, which is the the company that is distributing Kira's album in the U.S. Also, you can find meet-and-greet pictures here.
