Kristi Hoopes Joins 7522 Beach Mountain Radio


With seven years, 30+ awards, and two guitars under her belt, four-time “Songwriter of the Year,” five-time “New Country Female Entertainer of the Year,” and Nashville recording artist Kristi Hoopes is belting out the country music of tomorrow, today.

This past summer, Kristi had the opportunity to record her first album at the historic RCA Studio A (Grand Victor Sound) in Nashville, Tennessee after winning Lyricord’s first songwriting contest. Her new single, “At Least It’s Something” has been released and is currently available for purchase on iTunes and 30+ online music outlets.

Born in Parker, Colorado on Valentine’s Day, 17 year-old Kristi Hoopes found her love for the stage at the age of 2, entertaining her family on top of the family room coffee table. Her passion for country music flourished during her 3rd grade talent show while singing a country-fied version of Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made For Walking.”

That same year, Kristi was recruited by a musical theater troupe, touring nationally and internationally until the group disbanded in 2009. Kristi then decided that she was ready to pursue her career as a country singer-songwriter.

With a pocket full of original songs and a guitar in hand, Kristi began competing with the CCMA’s (Colorado Country Music Association). Kristi’s knockout wins in 2009 and in the years to follow led her to compete in Tennessee and win the international title of Female Entertainer of the Year from NACMAI (North American Country Music Association International) in 2010 and Songwriter of the Year in 2011.

This past summer, Kristi took home a first place win at the Country Showdown (formerly known as the Texaco Country Showdown) for KCRT 92.5, and was one of only six contestants to represent the state of Colorado on the Wynonna & The Big Noise stage at Copper Mountain.

From county fairs to coffee shoppes, Kristi quickly becomes a fan favorite and has left her eclectic country footprint at iconic venues like Cheyenne Frontier Days and the Colorado State Fair. Kristi has been both an opening act for well-known Colorado bands like the Blue Canyon Boys, Fireweed, Barry Ward, and Nashville recording artist Ashley Buchart and a headliner, proving herself to be an accomplished and dynamic emerging artist.

When she’s not tearin’ up a stage or penning a new song, she volunteers her time and talents at charity events and involves herself in local theater productions-both on stage and behind the scenes. Her rigorous AP academic schedule leaves her with little free time, but she makes use of what she gets by riding horses, camping, writing poetry, and hanging out with her friends.

Kristi Hoopes may be a small-town girl, but her voice promises to take her fans on a Mile Hi ride. “I am so thankful to have as many fans behind me as I do. This is a journey and I want my them to be with me every step of the way, wherever the road leads.”

Kristi Hoopes is excited that her music is heard on 7522 Beach Mountain Radio.

The Brummy Brothers Music Can Now Be Heard On 7522 Beach Mountain Radio


Bursting on to the scene mid-2012, The Brummy Brothers’ inspiring rhythms, infectious melodies, and undeniable ability to plow through a set with fiery passion and intensity keep them busy with over 100 shows a year up and down the East Coast.

The New Jersey natives’ original blend of bluegrass, rock, and improvisation forms a sound and energy that allows them to be found playing anywhere from rock clubs, to folk festivals, to farmers markets.  And it’s a good thing, because if one thing is clear, it’s that these guys love to play music.
