It's coming up "Diamonds" for RaeLynn
Friday, October 7, 2016
– RaeLynn released "Diamonds" exclusively on The Knot, the wedding brand and marketplace, today, a song from her upcoming debut, "WildHorse."
Written about her husband Josh Davis, the song beautifully describes that feeling of finally finding "the one." The Warner Bros. Records / Warner Music Nashville artist married Davis earlier this year in Franklin, Tenn.
"The day after I got engaged, as I was looking at my engagement ring and how beautiful it was, all I could think about was how much Josh meant to me and that this ring would just be a ring without him," she tells The Knot. "What makes it so special is that it seals a promise to the man I love for the rest of my life."
RaeLynn release a single about relationships as well, "Love Triangle." The song is about her parents' divorce and its affect on her.
"Every lyric takes you through a part of my journey these last four years - this record is my college experience in a lot of ways. I graduated from high school, moved away from my parents, and started a life on my own. I fell in love, had my heart broken and then found love again. I married the man of my dreams, and now we're starting a life together. All the highs and lows from these last four years are here. I've always wanted to put out an album where my personality and songwriting could really shine through, and I feel like 'WildHorse' finally gives fans a true glimpse into who I am as an artist and a young woman."
"This album is my journey and I sure hope you find some of your journey in it, too," said RaeLynn.
The track listing is:
1. Your Heart
3. Love Triangle
4. Lonely Call
6. The Apple
7. Young (featuring Leeland Mooring)
11. Say (featuring Dan + Shay)
12. Praying For Rain
RaeLynn is still finishing her debut record with producers and co-writers, Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon. She is currently out on the road with Blake Shelton, which wraps this weekend with a two-night stay at Barclays in Brooklyn.
RaeLynn previously received radio play with "God Made Girls."

CD reviews for RaeLynn
Someone needs to inform karma that Raelynn is not getting what she deserves. It takes a lot of work to mess this equation up: national TV exposure (from "The Voice"), a monster hit (2014's "God Made Girls") and famous friends who've practically adopted you (like Blake Shelton). This is all atop her twangy Texan charm and very capable singer/songwriter chops. But somehow Raelynn's overseers made headshaking decisions. Last time out, they strategically released two »»»
Call it the Kellie Pickler model of success. Take one perky blonde persona, throw in some aw-shucks Southern charm and top it off with a throwback singing style to charm your way onto a game show. It sure worked well for Racheal Lynn Woodward. While the native Texan -- then in her teens and now 20 - didn't win season two of The Voice, she certainly warmed her way into Blake Shelton's heart. He put her on his smash "Boys Round Here" and wife Miranda Lambert took her on tour. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
