Born and raised in the small town of Murray, KY, Arista Manning hails from a close-knit farming community where her family has worked for generations and where the corn fields are tall and rich with bright hues of green. Manning’s music career began with the southern roots that now help grow her artistry – inside her hometown church in Kentucky, where she played the piano and sang in the choir at the ripe age of eight. Manning’s vocal tenacity is often referred to as “refreshing, energetic and easy to listen to,” the rising country songstress is bound to make waves in the music industry.
After taking the stage at local talent shows and events as a young girl, Manning’s goals broadened beyond her small town, and the teenager began traveling to Music City to record demos and pursue the dreams that continued to follow her.
Manning’s debut single, “Southern Drawl” from her self-titled EP, “Ride This Night,” charted on Music Row’s Breakout Chart in 2016. Manning continued to promote her music by performing along the NASCAR Circuit at Kentucky, Bristol, Charlotte and Daytona Motor Speedways, where the artist opened for Rascal Flatts at the 2018 Daytona 500 Weekend. Her drive and passion has also given her the opportunity to grace the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN as part of Ralph Stanley’s Forever Tribute Event in October of 2017 alongside Mark Herndon of “Alabama,” Stella Parton, Jamie O’Neal and more.
Manning’s first release of 2018, “Lucky Enough” showcases her Country, Pop, and Americana influences. “Lucky Enough” being her second single from her Debut EP, “Ride This Night,” is a strong and spirited track that will widely captivate country music fans nationwide.
