About Brooke Eden:

Over the last few years rising star Brooke Eden has become a critically acclaimed force to be reckoned with in Nashville. Heralded by Billboard as a “fiery country star-in-the-making,” and named one of CMT’s Next Women of Country as well as a Music Row “Next Big Thing,” Brooke has used her personal journey to self-acceptance to create music that is both bold and passionate with the message that it is okay to be who you are. She has even punctuated this message in the form of a partnership with the RIAA, “Music Matters with RIAA,” a multi-event-driven campaign designed to show how music can enable our authentic voice, give us purpose, and give us strength and courage to navigate life’s challenges.

A dynamic performer, Brooke has shared the stage with Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Tim McGraw, Kane Brown and Keith Urban. Both a CMT Music Awards and  2023 GLAAD Media Awards nominee for “Outstanding Breakthrough Artist,” Brooke has been lauded by American Songwriter, Billboard, Buzzfeed, The Gay Times, MTV News, People, Popsugar, SheKnows, Them, Vogue, Wide Open Country and Young Hollywood while performing on national television shows from NBC’s TODAY to the Academy of Country Music Awards. Applauded for her “commanding stage presence and brassy straight-shooting style” (Nashville Lifestyles), “Brooke Eden is the queer country superstar we need and deserve” (Gay Times Magazine). Her new EP, Outlaw Love, is nothing short of Brooke’s purely authentic, glowing self, that perfectly captures her “fun-loving ’90s-influenced sound…with a compelling message to boot” (American Songwriter).
