The top 10 Tampa music stories of 2013, No. 5: Caroline Kole's breakout year
People have long known big things were in store for Caroline Kudelko, the pop-country prodigy from Clearwater who went by the name Suite Caroline and later Caroline Kole.
Since performing with Alan Jackson and Rodney Atkins at WQYK’s Santa Blast last December, Kole has toured with Reba McEntire, signed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV and released a new single, Money to Me. She landed another slot at the Florida Strawberry Festival in February, played a homecoming concert at St. Pete’s Club Detroit, performed at her alma mater, St. Paul’s in Largo; and headlined a benefit concert for the local charity Instruments of Change.
Caroline Kole is still just a teenager, but that’s a pretty big year for anyone. We’re curious about what she has in store for 2014.
