Bordered by the great state of Georgia in the East, who has produced greats like Cole Swindell, Brantley Gilbert, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, the Georgia half of FGL and Thomas Rhett to name a few, and the country music Mecca of Tennessee to the North, Alabama often finds herself overshadowed in the country music world.
Recently, we’ve seen a rise in Alabama born artists with talented newcomer Riley Green and now, Hoover, Alabama native Bailey Ingle.
She got her big break by opening on tour for Keith Urban on his “Raise Em Up” tour. The pair sang the hit track “We Were Us” and Bailey rocked the Miranda Lambert half of the duet.
She went on to nail another Miranda hit with her acoustic cover of Vice on her YouTube channel.
The talented (and not to mention gorgeous) musician has taken to her Instagram to update her latest videos, including snippets of her performances, guitar jams from her bedroom floor and on stage shots of her incredibly styled outfits.
I’m excited to follow along on the rest of this girls journey. I may have only lived in Alabama a few short years myself, but I can say they sure know how to grow ’em too. Watch out Georgia (and you too, Tennessee) , Alabamas on the rise.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
