Rising country songstress RaeLynn chatted about her newest radio single "God Made Girls" and her future plans in country music.
As Digital Journal reported, her latest single was well-received. She co-wrote it with such songwriters as Lori McKenna, Liz Rose and Nicolle Galyon. "I was going to a writing session with Lori McKenna, Liz Rose and Nicolle Galyon, and we were all sitting around and bouncing off ideas of what we were going to write that day. We were four girls in a room talking about the things that boys can't do without girls and we came up with that song," she said.
Her single has been embraced by the radio airwaves, and it is played on New York's hit country radio station, Nash FM 94.7, which is an "awesome" feeling for RaeLynn. "That makes me so happy that they are playing it in New York," she said with excitement.
RaeLynn's music video for the song will be released tomorrow. "I wanted something very unique that hasn't been done in country music. It is very magical, very unique and very me," she said. "I love fairy tales and all those things, so it's definitely very whimsical and very different, and I am very excited about it."
Her greatest musical influences include such country queens as Miranda Lambert and Dolly Parton. "I love strong women. Dolly is the greatest human being in the world," she said.
Speaking of Dolly Parton, her song "Jolene" is RaeLynn's all-time favorite song and really loves covering it live. "I love doing that song. We came up with a cool version and it's really fun to do," she said.
At the moment, she is doing a lot of radio shows and trying to figure out what tour she is going to do next year and she is working on finishing up her album. "I will probably go back in the studio before the end of the year, and I will keep on writing and recording, and getting the single out," she said.
A Valory Music Company recording artist, RaeLynn's label is home to such artists as Reba McEntire, Justin Moore, The Mavericks, Thomas Rhett and Brantley Gilbert. "It's amazing. We are all one big family and we all support each other. Every artist is different in their own way and we push for everybody to do well. It's an amazing label group to be a part of," she said.
The 20-year-old country singer is motivated each day by her fans and family members. "Music is my passion, and I feel motivated with the fact that everything is going well. The fact that I get to wake up every morning and do this is inspiring enough," she said.
RaeLynn finished in third place on Blake Shelton's team on the second season of the reality singing competition, The Voice. "It was such an amazing experience to be a part of his team. He took me under his wing and he is an awesome guy," she said.
She defined the word success as "hard work." "Success doesn't come, you have to work hard for it. When I see any success, I think of all the hard work that went into it," she said.
