RALEIGH, N.C. – Country music singer-songwriter Paige King Johnson is excited to represent her home state with a performance at the Acoustic Christmas for the Kids Concert in Selma, N.C. on Sunday, Dec. 5th at The Farm at 95! Johnson will join headliner Kane Brown, along with special guests Restless Road and fellow hometown country artist Taylor Phillips. The exclusive event is presented by 94.7 WQDR for a special cause with all proceeds benefiting the kids of UNC Children’s Hospital.
Tickets for the Acoustic Christmas for the Kids Concert are on sale now at Eventbrite.
“Any chance for my passion for music to cross over with my passion to help others is a win in my book!” shares Johnson. “Being asked to be part of this special Christmas for the Kids Concert was such an honor, and I’m so looking forward to taking the stage with such great names. It also warms my heart to know that I’m able to make a difference back in my home state of North Carolina. This show is the best of all worlds for me!”
Johnson recently released her latest single, “Baby Don’t,” distributed by BFD/The Orchard – a subsidiary of Sony Music, and is now included in TIDAL’s Rising: Country and Spotify’s Fresh Finds: Country playlists. Her strong vocals soar on the lively tune, as the lyrics are both charming and assertive. She sings of a feeling some of us are all too familiar with, knowing we are on the brink of falling in love quickly with every little thing they do drawing us closer. “Baby Don’t” brings the energy and attitude that has listeners singing along to every word.

About Paige King Johnson:
Born in a quiet North Carolina town just 22 miles south of Raleigh, as a young 9-year-old girl, Paige King Johnson spent her summers under the crepe myrtles imitating the styles of Loretta, Patsy, Waylon, and Merle. Having a grandpa as her biggest fan also meant receiving the gift of her first guitar – a baby Taylor – and enrolling in lessons. After her grandpa passed, the bright-eyed dreamer carried on his memory by taking her newfound discovery to local fairs, festivals, and any other stage she was allowed to stand on. As she grew older, Johnson added “opening act” to her resume, supporting chart-topping artists like Scotty McCreery, Neal McCoy, Luke Pell, and James Otto. And with high school graduation came the realization that this was more than a hobby. The Angier native traded in horse pastures and back roads for the bright lights of Music City in 2015. Upon starting school at Belmont University for Music Business, Johnson honed in on the magic that had heavily influenced her as a child: the art of storytelling through songwriting.
The famous Bluebird Café was just one of many writers’ circuits around Nashville that provided a safe space for Johnson to meet other writers, try out new tunes, and get feedback. In return, Johnson began captivating audiences with her down-home stage presence, cut straight to the bone stories and raw country voice, reminiscent of the classic country era. In the last four years, Johnson has traveled back and forth between Nashville and the Carolinas, playing shows like the North Carolina State Fair and running her dinner theater, Country on the Outskirts of Town, that she founded in high school. Johnson’s quarterly show provides an atmosphere for locals to enjoy Southern cooking, fellowship with friends, and the sounds of classic and current country music with some gospel thrown in. A three-time Carolina Country Music Awards Winner for Female Vocalist of the Year, Country Emerging New Artist, and Tour of the Year, Johnson’s devoted homegrown fan base continues to expand farther than just her backyard.
