2023 is the year of Kat Hasty.
Kat began releasing music amidst COVID and really gained traction fast but seemed to have a slow roll out when it came to touring and a sophomore album. And while not the traditional route, it seems to be working in her favor.
Not only did she announce her first ever headlining tour and some international dates opening up for Morgan Wade, but she has also released some new music.
Kat’s latest single “Damn Fine Living” is a killer post-breakup anthem that dropped just over a week ago, but that didn’t stop her from going to TikTok to tease even more new music.

Instead of her on-brand romantic love and breakup songs, this is the first I think we’ve heard her sing about motherhood.
I truly think this perspective will be a game changer for Kat’s career. While she openly talks about Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift as some of her female inspiration, the one perspective they don’t share is motherhood. And now that I think about it, when you think about female country superstars, you don’t think about their songs about their children.
But here are some of the lyrics she sings:
“My fragile heart can’t take the way you grow
I wish time would slow
Because it’s just me and you
Rollin’ down the road…”
What works for Kat is that she is known for love songs and when singing about her young daughter, she just sings about a different kind of love that encompasses a whole different level of vulnerability but is still very on-brand for her.
While nothing has been officially announced, it looks like we’ll be getting a new EP or album (hopefully) from Kat Hasty by the end of the year. Now I am looking foward to see how she incorporates mores songs about the love she has for her daughter into the theme.
In the meantime, be sure to stream “Damn Fine Living” amongst her other music and be sure to catch her show if she comes to a city near you.
