Razor-sharp rising star and Big Loud Records artist Jillian Jacqueline has released the song and video for her defiant new track, “Bleachers,” a confident declaration which puts her unflinching Country creativity on blast.
Co-written by Jacqueline with Tofer Brown and Trent Dabbs, the song is now available across all digital platforms and highlights this emerging artist’s fully developed sense of self. Upbeat and carefree, “Bleachers” is a loud-and-proud anthem filled with marching beats and pep rally chants that celebrates individuality and staying true to who you are.
“I wanted to write something that felt like an anthem, a lighthearted ode to embracing individuality without sounding preachy,” Jacqueline explains. “When I wrote it, I felt like using the dynamics of high school as a way to describe life shows how the ideas and beliefs we sometimes learn young get carried into adulthood and can prevent us from embracing the contrasts that actually make the world so uniquely beautiful. It’s the most fun to sing onstage.”
Now live on Vevo, Jacqueline’s “Bleachers” video is a day in the life adventure full of retro swagger, inviting viewers to tag along for recording sessions, photo shoots, scooter rides, and even a shopping trip as the talented singer-songwriter grows her collection of vintage threads.
With over a striking 12.3 million streams and 1.4 million monthly listeners to her name, “Reasons” has already rocketed into Spotify’s Viral 50 USA list while racking up nearly 5 million streams on this streaming platform alone. Positioned on several prominent playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday, the song is also currently featured on SiriusXM’s “On The Horizon” program.
Named early on as one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” Jacqueline was selected for CMT’s coveted Next Women of Country list, as well as the network’s tastemaking “17 for 2017” rundown of new artists to watch this year.
Through the month of July, Jacqueline will be opening shows for boundary-pushing icon Dwight Yoakam, after wrapping a run with Billy Currington. She will continue to introduce herself as a Country artist who’s different from the rest, prepping for the release of her first project produced by Tofer Brown.
