BMI Entertainment | Hannah Ellis

Since 2020, Rising Above has brought you a wide range of musical talent and this year Curb Records recording artist and country music singer/songwriter Hannah Ellis joined us LIVE for Rising Above.

The Campbellsville, Kentucky-native’s voice – a mix of favorite flannel, sparkling pink wine and welcome – is the friend we always wanted.

Ellis recently made her Grand Ole Opry debut, has toured with Gavin DeGraw, Dwight Yoakam, Devin Dawson, and many others, and has toured as part of the CMT “Next Women of Country” Tour. Ellis was invited back by her college alma mater to be featured in a national television advertising campaign about pursuing and achieving your dreams. Hannah Ellis’ debut single, “Us” (Official Video) along with  “Home And A Hometown” are available now on Curb Records, with more music to follow!
