  • Nashville has a great creative atmosphere. It’s a small, close-knit music community that you can’t find anywhere else.
  • I write from what’s in my heart. I write what I love and have always done that. I’m so lucky to be writing and performing with some of the best writers in the world. I’m having a blast.
  • I never had any other thought in my mind. I was gonna write songs, I was gonna be a star and a singer and I never thought of doing anything else.


  • When not performing live, she resides in Nashville and writes songs for artists like Reba McEntire and Tanya Tucker. [May 2003]
  • After the song “Bette Davis Eyes” became a hit single, Bette Davis wrote letters to Kim and songwriters Donna Weiss and Jackie DeShannon and asked how did they know so much about her. One of the reasons Davis loved the Grammy-winning song is that her granddaughter heard it and thought her grandmother was “cool” for having a hit song written about her.
  • Rock, folk, and country singer and songwriter.
