Clearwater's Caroline Kole touring with Reba McEntire; signs national record, publishing deals



We've always known Suite Caroline was going to make it someday. And it looks like that day is today.

Now singing under the name Caroline Kole, the 15-year-old Clearwater native has been touring with country queen Reba McEntire, who signed Kole (nee Caroline Kudelko) to her Starstruck Records label. Kole has also inked a sweet publishing deal with Sony/ATV, one of the reasons she's now living in Nashville and preparing a five-track EP, including first single Money to Me.

On Friday, Kole will make a grand homecoming at Club Detroit in St. Petersburg. "It'll be good to be home again," said the soon-to-be high school junior. "See all my family and all of my friends."
