Hailey Dawn is a 17 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 and open mics around Middle Tennessee. Some of her favorite venues include the original "Puckett's Grocery" in Leiper's Fork, as well as the iconic "Bluebird Cafe" in Nashville. Her first EP is set to release in June of 2019, but you can already hear two of her songs on all major platforms. Her first single, "Back Roads", is an upbeat country song about the heartbreak of unrequited love. Her second single is titled "Tennessee", and has almost 2,000 streams on Spotify without any promotion. It's a beautiful country waltz about the beauty and charm of small town Tennessee.
