– Hailey Whitters announced the first leg of her headline Raised Tour, kicking off Feb. 23, 2023 in Bloomington, Ind.
The tour is Whitters' first headline run in support of her third studio album "Raised," released earlier this year via Pigasus / Songs & Daughters / Big Loud,.
Whitters will support Shania Twain on her Queen of Me tour next May.
"The 'Raised' record was largely influenced by not just the people and place that brought me up, but by the country music that influenced me," Whitters said. "My mom drove me five hours away from our hometown to see The Chicks on a school night, and I bailed on my high school winter formal at the last minute because my dad came home that night with tickets to Brooks and Dunn. Country music is about people, place and community. I'm super thankful for my fans, and I'm excited to create a live experience for this tour in some awesome venues where a whole new crop of country fans will create those same special kinds of memories."
Earlier this month, Whitters released covers of Randy Travis' "Meet Me Under the Mistletoe" and George Jones "New Baby For Christmas" in celebration of the holiday season. The songs were produced by Jake Gear and recorded by Logan Matheny at RCA Studio A and features performances by Kris Donegan (electric guitar), Chris Scruggs (steel guitar), Lex Price (bass), Jerry Roe (drums), Mike Rojas (piano), Eamon McLoughlin (fiddle) and Kristen Rogers (BGVs).
