Kate Coleman may be front and center in Run Katie Run, but the band’s new album, Cowboy Boots with Fishnet Tights deeply reflects the community surrounding her. Its 13 Americana/roots-rock tracks cover the good, the sad, the inspired, and the tired — and everything in between — about relationships of all kinds. As RKR recorded throughout 2022, the five friends who first met at an open mic night in Georgia arranged and produced the album together, and Kate says she could see their trust in each other — and their friendships — grow as the months went by.
According to Roger White (Dollywood’s Entertainment Coordinator), “Music fans everywhere need to see Run Katie Run live- they have blown it out of the water for three years in a row at Dollywood. Guests love their energy, their music, and their showmanship!”
Their music is, “comfortable, warm, and inviting” (Vents Magazine) and they sprinkle in the perfect amount of creatively arranged covers- such as Me and Bobby McGee, Jolene, Zombie, White Rabbit, and With a Little Help From My Friends- to keep every newcomer in the audience delighted to be there!
In 2021, the quintet of best friends released their ﬁrst E.P., "RUNNING ON LOVE", with reviews and previews running in Glide and American Songwriter-and they were the featured band at Dollywood's Harvest Festival. Fast forward to 2023: the roots-rock band released their ﬁrst L.P., “COWBOY BOOTS WITH FISHNET TIGHTS”, and they’re expanding their footprint by playing more festivals and concert series, touring up-and-down the East coast, and opening for A1A and Ronnie McDowell. On April 13, 2024 the band will be sharing a bill with Melissa Etheridge, Dawes, and Blind Boys of Alabama at Amplify Decatur Music Festival!
