Kristin Garner (born in Owego, New York[1]) is an American country music singer-songwriter. Garner was signed to Atlantic Records in the year 2000.[2] Atlantic Records contracted with Kyle Lehning to produce Garner's first album. While on a promotional radio tour, her debut single "Let's Burn It Down" debuted on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in May 2001 and rose to number 59.[3] Garner performed at Fan Fair in downtown Nashville in June 2001.[4] Atlantic Records (Nashville) closed its doors in 2002 and released all eleven of its signed artists.
