Accompanying the release, Evvie also debuts her first single and video from the project, “Do It Again”. Nashville’s Analog Lounge serves as the video’s funky backdrop while Evvie’s soulful and melodious sound captivates the viewer. “This Is Evvie McKinney'' is a project that I put my whole heart into. It gives people the real Evvie McKinney and reflects my relationship with Christ in depth”, says Evvie. “I may be young, but the Lord has blessed me beyond measure and has been with me through the trenches. He is my life coach and He helps develop me when no one is watching. THIS is Evvie McKinney!

"This Is Evvie McKinney" comes after an incredible breakthrough year for the artist. After debuting her hit single Bring the Whole Hood, which she co-wrote with Meghan Trainor, Evvie has continued to knock down doors and prove that she is here to stay. In 2020, she:
