After spending a few years in the trenches learning the craft of songwriting in Nashville, Kim began recording as a background vocalist on many of today’s well known country artists. Ronnie Dunn, Reba McEntire, Faith Hill, JoDee Messina, Phil Vasser, Kix Brooks, Sherrie Austin, Aaron Tippin, and Daryl Singletary are just a few of a long list of artists she has sung with. You have been hearing her voice for years on the radio, now you can put a name and face to the voice!
She then began touring as a background vocalist, first with Brooks and Dunn and subsequently with Christopher Cross. These tours would take her around the world over the course of a decade.
All the while she was continually making her own artist CD’s, using her experience with these artists as inspiration, to help her craft the songs which spoke from her heart. Kim also had the great opportunity to sing at the Grand Ole Opry for 7 years as one of the 4 staff background vocalists on a bi weekly basis.
This extensive foray into the mysterious and wonderful world of music brings her to where you see her today, performing as a “solo artist” confident with her acoustic guitar, conveying heartfelt lyrics with a powerful yet understated vocal delivery.
Kim Parent is pleased to present her newest and 5th CD, appropriately titled “Back to Love” as she returns to what she originally loved to do as a young teenager, which was to sit in the great outdoors and play guitar, write songs, and sing.
