20. Spencer Crandall
It’s undeniable that Spencer Crandall is a star in the making. While he only hit the scene a few years ago, he has garnered a strong fan-base online across social platforms by genuinely connecting with his fans. All the hard work paid off with two of his albums debuting at No. 1 on the iTunes country chart, “My Person” surpassing 31 million streams on Spotify alone, and now, racking up over 2.2 million followers on TikTok.
Spencer grew up in Colorado, then moved to Nashville in 2016 to pursue music where he has been working as an independent singer-songwriter ever since. Now, Crandall is fully engulfed in the country music industry. Last year, he released his record Wilderness, which was the culmination of four creative projects. The record featured a song called “My Person” that has quickly become one of the most romantic and real songs of our generation.
His sound continues to push the envelope—a blend of country storytelling with non-traditional production elements—reflecting influences ranging from Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift to Justin Timberlake and Drake. Spencer has shared the stage with artists including Chris Lane, Dustin Lynch, Tyler Rich and Josh Turner.
Besides the EP, Crandall has so many new projects coming down the pipeline. A YouTube series about the singer’s life called target=”_blank”>‘Road to the Stadium’ launched last year. Catch Crandall performing his new single “Made,” “My Person” and more on the road with Lauren Alaina on her Top of the World tour, kicking off this year.
