In 2011, Kelly released her most successful album, “Heartstrings” completing an astounding 85 City US Radio Tour in 90 days promoting her single, “One Foot In Front Of The Other”.
The success of Heartstrings captured Kelly artist endorsements from Takamine Guitars, Sennheiser, Vocopro and Ernie Ball.
2016 was a breakthrough year for McGrath, signing her first publishing deal with ole’ Publishing in Nashville, and recording her highly anticipated 4th studio album “Kites.” CMT premiered her music video for the “You and Me Today”, the first single released off the upcoming EP, with high critical acclaim it was voted #1 by fans in CMT’s 12 Pack Countdown.
