Alexandra Kay’s is paving her own way with her impressive vocals, original music, and most importantly her Coffee Covers, which allowed the rising country star to go viral and build her budding career.
Kay generated a massive fan base of over 526,000 followers to date on Facebook, 126,000 followers on Instagram. She raked in 2.4+ million TikTok users with her intriguing “Coffee Covers,” a series that finds Kay singing while preparing her coffee each morning.
“The very first coffee cover was an accident,” Kay previously told Music Mayhem. “Someone asked how I make my coffee, so I posted a video of me pouring everything into my cup… The Chicks “Cowboy Take Me Away” just happened to be playing through my Alexa and I sang along. I had no idea those videos would lead me to two iTunes No. 1’s, millions of streams and meeting some of my biggest inspirations! It’s been a dream.”
Her short TikTok clips received recognition from Tim McGraw and Randy Travis for her angelic vocals. In addition to receiving recognition from McGraw and Travis, she also earned their support as both of the country icons have duetted and or responded to her videos on TikTok. Notably, the rising star even became close friends with Travis, who she says is one of her musical heroes.
“Randy dueted one TikTok of me doing a coffee cover singing his song “Deeper Than The Holler” and it blew up on his page with 11 million views!” Kay shared. “So Randy’s team invited me out to his house in TN, and we got to sing and make coffee together. We laughed and I thanked him for all of the songs he gave us country music fans… they are ultimately what made me want to write and sing country music. It was really cool to get to thank him for that!”
Kay recently released her party-like anthem “Tall Boys,” which she has been testing out on the road on the In Real Life Tour with breakthrough stars Thomas Mac and Cooper Alan. The rising star just stepped away from the tour to get married to the love of her live-in Mt. Vernon, Illinois.
