After racking up more than 30 million plus streams on Spotify alone, Jacqueline is taking Country radio by storm with the razor-sharp tell-all “Reasons.” Written by Jacqueline, Tofer Brown and Sarah Buxton, the track is featured on her acclaimed EP, SIDE A, available now.

Taking it international, she returns to the U.K. in March to perform at the C2C Festival in London before embarking on additional dates with Davis.
