Nashville singer/songwriter Bailey Callahan (Pink Mustang Music, LLC), is set to release her new original tune, “Roll”, on Feb. 28. Bailey co-wote this song with Nick DeLeo and Nick Halsted. It was produced by Robbie Artess, and will be available on Feb. 28, through all major digital retail and streaming outlets – Amazon, iTunes, Pandora, Spotify and Tidal.
I got a review copy a few days ago, and realized right away that the press that came along with the CD was really accurate. It read, “A departure from what “Callafans” and country radio customarily expect from the fun-loving, all-American sweetheart, Bailey delivers a raw and gritty, vocal and emotional performance that embraces a fierce, matter-of-fact attitude similar to her musical influences Eric Church and Miranda Lambert. The edgy instrumentation and production fortify the songwriter’s roll-with-it, rebel stance.”
I’m not sure what I can add to that. You can definitely hear the Miranda influence in her vocals, and the Eric influence in the writing. This is more than just a song with edgy instrumentals and gritty vocals. Bailey is telling us about something she went through. For me, knowing there is a story coming makes me anxious to hear the rest of the song. And, in most cases a lot more than once.
Bailey shared this with the media in her recent press release, “We all go through ups and downs, good and bad—and break-ups,” Bailey Callahan said. “I wrote this song with two guys, right after a break-up. I was going through a really tough time and I shared my story. They encouraged me to push through it and write about it—this is from an ‘I got this’ perspective.”
Flow like a river, and roll like a coaster
The way I cope, I bet your momma never told ya
Burn like a fire but you never see the smoke
I’ll be drowning in a bottle but you’re never gonna know
“I’m feeling spunky and revived; I have a completely new outlook on life and love. We experimented with a new sound, instrumentally, and I’m confident in the musical direction. This tune (‘Roll’) is the next chapter in my life and channels what folks can expect to hear from me in the future. New Year! New Me!” Callahan added.
