Writer Kelly McCartney remembers listening to Kenny Rogers, the Stylistics, and the Carpenters as a kid. Nowadays, she’s more likely to be caught with Ashley Monroe, OK Go, and Matthew Perryman Jones in her ears, although the Stylistics still hold up nicely. Kelly currently contributes to No Depression, Curve, PopMatters, Shareable, GOOD, and Elmore magazine. On the side, she is collaborating with some wonderful musicians on a multi-media theatre series while also developing a couple of music-related video projects. Twitter: @theKELword
