Since moving to Nashville at seventeen this girl has been making some serious noise.
As you guys know we love to bring new country music to your ears. One artist it’s about time you are introduced to is Hailey Whitters. She hails from a small town in Iowa and was raised a country girl. When she moved to Nashville at only seventeen, she started doing a number of odd jobs and attended Belmont University until signing with Carnival Music in 2012.
“Black Sheep” by Hailey Whitters
In 2015 her debut album Black Sheep dropped and she’s been gigging all over the country opening for people such as Randy Houser, Chris Knight, Corey Smith, and most recently Jon Pardi. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Hailey live and she puts on an interactive and fun show. Her song that she wrote by herself “One More Hell” about her brother dying in a tragic car accident really resonated with me having lost a family member recently.
“One More Hell” by Hailey Whitters
Whitters truly has the storytelling ability through her lyrics. You can feel the passion and realness of her sound while listening to her sing. Her song “Low All Afternoon” was recorded by Martina McBride giving Whitters her first ever cut. That’s a pretty big deal considering the song is a ballad. Currently Hailey is on the road doing shows across the country but you can keep up with her via all social media outlets @Haileywhitters. If you have the opportunity to see this little spitfire live, don’t pass it up.
