RAELYNN’S LONG-AWAITED WILDHORSE SET FOR MARCH 24 RELEASE
Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville recording artist RaeLynn has some very exciting news to share via Facebook Live this morning. Her long-awaited debut album WILDHORSE will be available everywhere March 24 and she wanted fans to know first.
“Thank you so much for being so patient with my debut record WILDHORSE. This record deserved to have the perfect release and I'm so beyond excited it will be in your hands on March 24th!! No more surprises,” she laughed.
WILDHORSE, which can be pre-ordered here, features her powerful single “Love Triangle” that boasts 18 million on-demand streams to date and was revealed this week as one of Nashville Scene’s Best Singles of 2016 for their Country Music Critics' Poll. At a recent radio show in Columbus, Ohio, RaeLynn was moved to tears as the entire crowd joined her for the final verses of the song, singing every single word. Watch the video here.
The former Voice contestant is also gearing up to join her mentor and friend Blake Shelton out on the road for his 2017 DOING IT TO COUNTRY SONGS Tour kicking things off in Bakersfield, CA on February 16. In addition, RaeLynn will be featured in the upcoming American Currents exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame that chronicles the past year in country music.
RaeLynn’s current single “Love Triangle” is the powerful first track from her Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville debut WILDHORSE, produced by Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon and set to release March 24. “Love Triangle” tells her personal story in a way that "is a raw and emotional account of what it’s like to be the child of divorced parents" (People Magazine), which media and fans have immediately gravitated to, evidenced by the single hitting Top 11 sales per spin while the music video has racked up 4.3 million views since release. The remainder of the 12-track album, 11 of which were co-written by RaeLynn herself, is a broader look into her life over the past few years since her breakthrough on NBC’s hit show, The Voice. Nominated for 2016 ACM New Female Vocalist and selected as a 2017 “Country Artist to Watch” by Pandora Radio and Billboard, RaeLynn has tallied 94 million plus cumulative career streams. She is poised to follow in the early success of her Top 10, GOLD-certified song “God Made Girls” that has sold more than 850,000 downloads and has been streamed more than 75 million times. The track was nominated for 2016 Radio Disney’s Favorite Country Song, earned her recognition as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country and was the highest charting debut single by a solo female in 2014. The music video has accumulated more than 23 million views and earned her a pair of CMT Music Award nominations for Female Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year in 2015.
