Whitters gets Raised

Tuesday, November 15, 2022 – 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).

CD reviews for Hailey Whitters

CD review - Raised Hailey Whitters' "Raised" album is very much a biographical collection. From the title cut to the extended family sung about during "Big Family," Whitters sings again and again about her relatives and upbringing. She doesn't have to say the words 'small town' for the listener to know without a doubt she's telling us about country living. It's also an album built upon solid, traditional instrumentation, which makes it all the better. ...
CD review - Living the Dream Hailey Whitters has reissued her "The Dream" album as "Living The Dream" with five bonus collaboration songs. With these added treats, it makes a good album even better. The weakest of the new additions is "Fillin' My Cup" with Little Big Town. LBT is gaining a reputation as a drinking song group, when that vocal act's best songs go so much deeper than merely celebrating adult beverages. "How to Break a Heart," which features fellow A-level ...
CD review - The Days There's something about introspection and sadness that perfectly melds with country music. Take a six-string and three verses of someone's pain laid bare, and you might arrive somewhere special - a place where singer/listener form a bond of trust, tears, and healing. Hailey Whitters knows this more than most. Her 2015 release, "Black Sheep," contained one of the year's strongest self-penned tracks, "One More Hell." It's a devotion to her younger brother, who ...
