Chloe Kimes with Special Guest Dandy Freling Live from The Cooperage

July 10 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

When Kimes shared her performance of Coors Light live at WDVX’s Blue Plate Special in Knoxville, TN, she didn’t expect the viral whirlwind that followed. Within a week, Coors Light totaled over 4 million views across her social media platforms. Thousands of requests poured in from new listeners – they want the studio single. In a mere three days time, Kimes jumped to the call and took her band into RCA Studio A with producer Phillip Smith. Within just three weeks of its internet debut, Coors Light was available for all to enjoy. Kimes has gone above and beyond to match the unnerving pace of social media’s whims without compromising on the quality or authenticity expected from her loyal fanbase.

With influences like Prine, Hartford, and Tom T. Hall, Coors Light is imbued with an upbeat sense of joy and gratitude. Paying homage to her grassier roots, the song is powered by a ripping mandolin (Tristen Norfleet) leading the charge of her usual country outfit: pedal steel (Nick Larimore), upright bass (Miles Burger), acoustic guitar (Kimes), and drums (Aksel Coe). Coors Light has clearly sparked a universal joy among its listeners as new fans have come together with a frequent comment, “I never liked country music until I heard this”.


A highway-kind traveler combining a touch of the high and lonesome hollers of the Appalachian hill people with the low-down, dusty grooves of the cosmic cowboys, Dandy has created a unique songwriter banquet sure to satisfy the hunger of any weary passerby. A boot stompin’ finger picker with remnant hollers of the greats of our past – Don’t be afraid to stop awhile, and fill up your plate, there’s plenty to go around.
