Ruthie Collins - Curb Records Artist Ruthie Collins Partners with Country Now
Premieres “Pinterest Pass or Fail” Weekly Lifestyle Show
The 2016 calendar year is just a few days old, but one of the most buzzed about artists in country music is getting a head start on making the year one to remember.
Curb Records’ Ruthie Collins is teaming up with Country Now (the most viewed and highest rated, dedicated country music YouTube channel) to unveil her Pinterest “Pass or Fail” lifestyle show. The series, which will debut on January 21st and run weekly for six weeks, gives Collins a chance to showcase her DIY creativity in a wide variety of projects inspired by some of her favorite Pinterest posts – from painting upholstery to making her own marquee sign. The objective of the series is to show how some DIY projects seem easier said than done, but do require a great deal of imagination. At the end of each video, Collins will give each of her projects a “Pass” or “Fail” grade.

"I'm so excited to be able to share my love of all things vintage with people who may only know me for my music. As an artist, it's always great to be able to showcase different things you are passionate about and I love it when those passions collide. Country Now is such an amazing group to partner with and I feel so lucky to be able to do so," says Ruthie Collins.
Collins is one of Music City’s most respected and innovative young talents. A versatile artist as a singer, songwriter, and musician, her talent and stage presence has attracted the attention of CMT (Country Music Television), who have invited her to become part of their “CMT’s Next Women of Country” campaign. Her first single was a stirring cover of the classic “Ramblin’ Man,” which can be found on her self-titled EP for Curb Records. Collins attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston and has worked with renowned songwriters and producers such as Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift) and Steve Bogard (“Carried Away” / George Strait and “Prayin’ For Daylight” / Rascal Flatts).
An artist who has a deep love and appreciation for all things vintage, the New York native made her initial promotional rounds at radio in a 1975 Airstream Trailer, which she remodeled herself. She filmed a six-episode online series titled “Ready to Roll” that detailed that process. Her enjoyment of that project led to several 30 second DIY projects on her YouTube channel.
Collins will be appearing at the Roots and Blues Festival in Lancaster, Pennsylvania later this winter and will make her first-ever performance at the prestigious Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California in May. For more information about Ruthie Collins, please visit: www.ruthiecollinsmusic.com.
