With a rare gift for turning his hometown experiences into natural melodies, Kidd G has
found tremendous success by staying true to his roots. As a kid growing up in smalltown Georgia, he first started creating his own songs at the age of 15, and soon arrived
at a gritty but melodic sound equally inspired by classic country and hip-hop. On the
heels of his chart-climbing breakthrough single “Dirt Road”—an October 2020 release
whose video surpassed 5 million YouTube views in little over a month and now has 13M
views to date—Kidd G has recently shared his debut EP; the powerfully heartfelt
Teenage Dream. Now having surpassed 1.5M monthly Spotify listeners, his tracks have
seen radio play from KIXX Country Radio in Australia, and reached new peaks on highly
coveted country playlists including Amazon Music’s ‘Country Heat’ (peaked at #2), and
Spotify’s ‘Hot Country’ (peaked at #10). Kidd G is now back in the studio and eager to
share all new music that will continue to showcase his unique raw talent.
Born Gabriel Horne and raised in the town of Hamilton (population 1,130), Kidd G got
his start singing at the age of 11 with the full support of his music-loving family (his great
uncle played bass in Fleetwood Mac, and both his parents are hobbyist singers). Within
several years he’d set up a makeshift studio in his bedroom and started recording with
his friends, partly mining inspiration from new age rappers like Juice WRLD. One of his
first viral moments was his video, “Letter to Juice”, a minute-long verse over a
melancholic beat paying homage to the late artist. But while early tracks like his debut
single “Sorry” lean toward traditional hip-hop, Kidd G later brought an element of oldschool country into his songwriting. “I love country because it feels so natural to me, and
you can really tell stories in the songs,” he notes, naming Hank Williams Jr. among the
artists he grew up on. As he continued posting his music on SoundCloud, Kidd G soon
amassed a dedicated following undeniably drawn to his down-home charm and the
honest detail of his lyrics. With the arrival of “Dirt Road,” that following grew
exponentially as Kidd G saw the nostalgia-soaked track gain serious traction on the
Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and land on coveted Spotify playlists like Fresh Finds
Country and Next From Nashville.
Teenage Dream is a perfect showcase for Kidd G’s sound and sensibilities, merging
potent beats with earthy guitar work and his warm yet dynamic vocal delivery. On the
EP’s title track, for instance, Kidd G shares a poignant portrait of high-school love,
beautifully capturing each memory in his bittersweet drawl and masterful flow. “That
song’s about my truck, my ex-girlfriend, the place where I live,” he says. “I love my town
because it’s simple and slow, but there’s always something fun going on.” Although he
collaborated with producers like Morgan O’Connor and Bonnie Dymond on Teenage
Dream, most of the EP was written solely by Kidd G, who purposely avoids putting any
pressure on his creative process. “I really just go off my emotions and whatever I’m
feeling at the time, then start laying down some ideas,” he says. “Once I come up with
that main hook for a song, the whole thing comes together.” It’s this type of honest
songwriting that recently caught the attention of CMT, who hailed his hit song “Dirt
Road” as “earwarming and undeniable”.
