About Katie Armiger: Cold River Recording artist Katie Armiger has charted five singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Since 2009, every video she has released has been voted by fans onto GAC’s “Top 20 Countdown” including “Leaving Home,” which lodged itself in the countdown for an astonishing four-and-a-half months. Fan votes also netted her the No. 1 spot in Country Weekly’s Hottest Bachelorette issue two years in a row, as well as the No. 3 slot in the magazine’s most beautiful women in country music list. Armiger has opened for some of country music’s biggest artists including Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, Eli Young Band, Darius Rucker, Josh Turner, Rodney Atkins and Kellie Pickler, among others. She also recently completed a 70-date college tour, which she amusingly titled the “Get Smart” tour. The GAC-sponsored run played to sold-out audiences nationwide, and was a tipping point for her career. In 2012, she appeared during a pivotal date on ABC’s hit show “Bachelor Pad.” 2013 kicked off with the release of her current album, Fall Into Me, which became her highest charting album to date. The album includes her current single, “Playing With Fire” which is at Country radio now and a music video is pending release.http://www.countryschatter.com/2013/03/katie-armiger-becomes-honorary-friends-and-family-member-of-the-country-music-hall-of-fame-and-museum/NewsPress ReleaseCountry Music Hall of Fame,country songs,countrymusichalloffame,Darius Rucker,Josh Turner,membership donations,weingartner
