Darling Parade Celebrates A Stellar Year At 'Artist To Watch Live'


The year is rapidly drawing to a close, so what better way to celebrate the waning of 2013 than with a performance by a band who has had a very good year: Darling Parade. The Nashville, Tennessee, band is slated to perform at our next Artist To Watch Live event on Thursday, December 12.

Darling Parade was the winner of the Make A Band Famous Award at the 2013 O Music Awards, scoring them a performance during VMA weekend, among other honors.

This pop/rock band – fronted by vocal powerhouse Kristin Kearns -- resides in Nashville, Tennessee, but retreated to a remote location in Kentucky to pen their debut LP, Battle Scars And Broken Hearts. To fund the album – replete with crashing soon-to-be classics like "Ghost" – the band turned to Kickstarter, where they raised $16,000 from their eager fans. The album officially dropped in April.

As you can see, the band has a lot to celebrate in 2013, so you should probably rock up to start ringing in the New Year early with them on Thursday. The band will take the stage at Artist To Watch Live right here at MTV Hive at 8:00 p.m. EST, so set your calendars NOW.
