                                                                      HARPER GRACE


                                                                Curb Records





After a career-altering appearance on season 18 of American Idol, which in many ways reinvigorated her music career path, Harper Grace delivered a very well-received single with “Yard Sale” and landed touring spots with Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, and Nelly. 

Since then, the Curb Records recording artist has been prepping her new album while cutting her teeth in the Nashville scene with high profile gigs at popular hotspots such as Live Oak, 6th & Peabody, and more!

She’s now ready to step into her next chapter with her debut radio single, “Sparkle.”

Having heard Harper perform this song a few times acoustically during writer’s rounds, she provided us with the incredible opportunity to first hear her fly without a net as she placed pure emotions into the lyrics, making it that much more awesome to now get to experience the fully recorded song and its catchy vibe.

The ultra-encouraging, uber autobiographical single, sees Harper lean her vocals snuggly against the production punch of the instrumentation as she boldly tells us of her down-home, country girl personality:

“More jukebox playing George Strait then box seats at the symphony”

“More dinner on a tailgate then Breakfast at Tiffany’s”

“My kind of sparkle goes well with a bonfire and a little bottle shelf”

This comparative type of lyric really hits its confident stride, though, when she pops into the chorus, singing:

“Like rhinestones on blue jeans

Like neon on a sign

Like headlights down a dirt road

That’s the way I shine

I ain’t no diamond on a gold band

Sitting real pretty on a left hand

Got a little rust on my heart

Well, that’s just my kind of sparkle”

The second part of the song sees somewhat of a shift as she tilts toward a budding relationship vibe that is giving her that butterfly feeling, while leaning into an irresistible catchiness to hook the listener as they continue sing along with an anthem that allows them to “sparkle” brightly in knowing who they are while embracing their own unique qualities.
