Singer-songwriter and Nashville native Kelleigh Bannen knew that music was her calling at an early age. “I started playing the violin at 5,” she says. “My first violin was a Cracker Jack box with a paint stirrer glued to it!” The Apple Music Country host began her songwriting career in her twenties, eventually landing a recording contract and touring alongside some of country music’s biggest names, including Little Big Town and Luke Bryan. Now independent, Kelleigh continues to write and record music on her own terms in between her Apple Music show. “I am continually inspired by this music community,” she says. “Nashville is bursting with talented vocalists, storytellers, and dreamers.”

Kelleigh’s favorite days (and nights) include cowrites with fellow songwriters, or a little bourbon alongside her favorite Stapleton, Lambert, and Church records—many of which she plays on her daily namesake Apple Music Country show. With warmth and humor, Bannen brings listeners insider perspectives and interviews that are thought-provoking and honest—giving both veteran hitmakers and new artists a space to share their journey, inspiration, and creative process. Says Kelleigh of her show: “It’s artist-to-artist conversations with some of the biggest names in country, high energy, and a lot of fun for music-obsessed fans like me.”

Hear The Kelleigh Bannen Show every Monday through Thursday on Apple Music Country at 7 am LA/9 am CT/10 am NYC/3 pm LDN.
