Country music darling RaeLynn will be officially taking her empowering new single “Lonely Call” to country radio next Monday, June 26. She will be performing the song live tonight, June 20, on the Grand Ole Opry stage along with other tracks from her “damn good” (Rolling Stone) #1 debut album, WILDHORSE.
When the Warner Music Nashville/Warner Bros. Records’ artist began the process of choosing a follow-up to “Love Triangle,” one of Rolling Stone’s Best Country Songs of 2016, she realized that the most important voice in that decision was her fans. A clear favorite kept raising its hand on social media since the day her album was made available, and that favorite was “Lonely Call.” Co-written with one of the album’s producers, Nicolle Galyon, and Rob Hawkins, “Lonely Call” is explained by NPR as rejecting “a wishy-washy ex without flinching, sending all of his calls to voicemail” while “steeling herself against the temptation to settle for his vacillating interest.”
This past weekend, the red-hot singer’s eponymous concert special aired on AUDIENCE Network’s new music program via DIRECTV, AT&T U-verse and on-demand through DIRECTV NOW. Fans can watch some behind-the-scenes clips (HERE) along with RaeLynn’s “My Story” interview (HERE). The “country Katy Perry” (Newsday) was also seen everywhere during this year’s CMA Music Fest, with Billboard praising her “impressive vocal performance” during her set at Riverfront Stage. RaeLynn is spending the summer touring fairs, festivals and more from coast-to-coast, with dates scheduled through September 23 in Indianapolis, IN.
About RaeLynn: RaeLynn’s current single “Lonely Call” is the follow-up to her powerful first track “Love Triangle” from the Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville #1 debut WILDHORSE, produced by Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon. “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 immediately gravitated to, evidenced by the single hitting Top 10 sales per spin while the music video has racked up nearly 8 million views since its 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. Recently selected as a 2017 “Country Artist to Watch” by Pandora, Napster and Billboard and a current CMT Next Women of Country inductee, RaeLynn has tallied 120 million plus cumulative career CMT Next Women of Country streams. She is poised to follow in the early success of her Top 10, GOLD-certified song “God Made Girls” that has tallied more than 940,000 track equivalent sales and has been streamed more than 50 million times. The rising star has earned numerous award nominations including the Academy of Country Music Awards’ New Female Vocalist of the Year, Radio Disney Music Awards’ Favorite Country Song and The Freshest! – Best New Artist Country, and most recently CMT Music Awards’ Breakthrough Video of the Year, her second in that category in addition to a Female Video of the Year nod. The breakout star has had several national TV performances since The Voice, including appearances on TODAY, Late Night with Seth Meyers and ELLEN.http://www.countryschatter.com/2017/06/raelynn-calling-on-country-radio-june-26-to-spin-new-single-lonely-call/Grand Ole OpryNew ReleasesPress ReleaseAT&T U-verse,DierctTV,Grand Ole Opry,Lonely Call,Nicolle Gaylon,RaeLynn,Wildhorse
