“We love hearing Kree sing anything, so to have her record a song we wrote is truly special.
She is an absolute vocal treasure.”
-Chris Stapleton and Morgane Stapleton
“Kree’s voice and music style is like hearing a warm vinyl record and it completely wraps you up. Her vocals are pitch perfect while also containing so much soul that it feels effortless.”
“Nashville is full of good singers, a lot of great singers, and a handful of exceptional singers. Then every once in a while someone comes along that truly exists in a league of their own. That is Kree Harrison. It’s hard not to believe in reincarnation when you hear that voice.”
-John Osborne of Brothers Osborne
“Kree has been one of my favorite young singers since I first heard (and voted for!) on American Idol. She’s really got the right stuff. When you listen to her new single I know you’ll agree.”
“Kree’s music will always be her gift to all of us listening… what matters the most to me is that she is an amazing young woman who has such heart, who stands for what is real, for what is true, and for what is authentic. She is a pioneer and I love her fire! Kree is the next generation of greatness.”
Nashville, Tenn (February 12, 2019)—One Vision Music Group is proud to announce the release of Kree Harrison’s “I Love The Lie,” the debut song from her forthcoming 2019 album, to be available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all digital retailers on March 8. The song, which was co-written by Chris Stapleton, Morgane Stapleton and Liz Rose (Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood), will go to radio on February 25.

Produced by Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson, the release of “I Love The Lie” marks an exclusive recording and publishing agreement for Kree, who was introduced by industry veteran David Polemeni, to Nashville-based label One Vision Music Group, a subsidiary of Visionary Media Group. Says Clayton McDonnell, head of A&R for One Vision Music Group, “Kree is an extraordinary talent whose voice is both resounding and soulful all in one. We are thrilled to be part of her bright future.”
Says Kree of the song, “I’ve been thankful to have been immersed in Nashville’s songwriting community from the start of my career, and have learned it’s not always about writing every song, but finding the ones that immediately speak your truth, which is exactly what happened when I heard ‘I Love The Lie.’ Working on this project has made me find a piece of resilience within myself I didn’t know existed, and I feel like this special song gives a taste of that.”
Kree gained immense success and a worldwide following as runner up on Season 12 of American Idol; her successful debut single and Idol finale song, “All Cried Out,” reached #34 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. Following Idol, her highly acclaimed 2016 collection This Old Thing, hit #28 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and #20 on the Heatseekers Album chart.
Kree has also collaborated with Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban at the Grand Ole Opry and Wynonna Judd and the Eli Young Band.
Raised in Woodville, Texas, Kree spent her childhood singing at churches, rodeos, weddings and competitions. By 10, she had opened for Percy Sledge, won “Artist of the Year” from Kirbyville Playhouse; sung three times on “The Rosie O’Donnell Show”; and scored a development deal with Lyric Street Records, which resulted in her move to Nashville.
Kree is currently in the studio writing and recording material for her sophomore full-length album to be released later this year. Plans for her forthcoming album and 2019 tour dates are to be announced.
