Hailey Dawn is a 18 year-old country singer-songwriter from Thompson's Station, TN. Growing up in a musical family right outside Music City, she has been influenced by country artists such as Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Faith Hill and Keith Urban. Other influences are names you might not expect like "The Police", Pat Benatar, "The Romantics" and "First Aid Kit". She first began writing songs at the age of 12, and a desire to pursue a career as a singer-songwriter in the country genre was born. Each of her songs include instruments you would normally hear on any country record, like acoustic guitar, fiddle, mandolin, etc., but she also includes pop riffs and rock tones, which create a happy balance between modern country and the pop music of today. In Spring of 2018, she won best small ensemble at Dark Horse Institute's "Battle Of The Bands". Dark Horse institute is connected to Dark Horse Recording Studios, where artists such as Taylor Swift, Hunter Hayes, Keith Urban, Relient K, Bela Fleck, Korn and many more have recorded. She has also been a frequent performer at festivals, open mics, and writers rounds in Middle Tennessee. Some of her favorite venues include the original "Puckett's Grocery" in Leiper's Fork, “Belcourt Taps” on Belcourt Ave, as well as the iconic "Bluebird Cafe" in Nashville. Her debut EP, “Hollow Heart”, was released the summer of 2019, with songs touching on numerous subjects like unrequited love, addiction, and breaking free from controlling relationships. She has just released a remix of her title track, "Hollow Heart 2.0", where she switched out the heavy bass and drums for some 808s, giving it an "Old Town Road" vibe.
