Republic Nashville is proud to announce the signing of 18-year-old firecracker RaeLynn. The talented young artist catapulted onto the national scene after being selected for Team Blake on Season Two of NBC’s “The Voice.” Throughout the lengthy run on the TV show, she garnered a plethora of fans, like Country Superstars Blake Shelton and wife Miranda Lambert.
RaeLynn’s impressive performance of the Pistol Annie’s “Hell on Heels” provided a powerful introduction for the petite songstress. Since then, she has appeared at Stagecoach–California’s Premier Country Music Festival– where she was invited to perform with one of her idols, Miranda Lambert. RaeLynn has also been writing and recording songs for her first album on the label that will showcase pizazz and honor Country roots.
