Full of bright instrumentation and Hailey's signature charm. I'm In Love shows off Whitters' love of strong 90s country influences and the important of a female perspective. Written by Nicolle Galyon, Lee Miller, & Cameron Bedell, the tender story tells the idyllic tales of a Midwestern cornfed love and that sometimes a down-home love story is the best kind. The whimsy of the chorus invites fan into the whirlwind of young love and the feeling of being smitten, plus in signature HW style a moment to clap along!
Whitters explains, “I knew the minute I heard this song I had to record it. I didn’t write it (Nicolle Galyon, Lee Miller, & Cameron Bedell did), but I wish I had. I love - pun intended - the quirky language and spirit. Every time I sing it I’m smiling like a big ol sap because it just makes me so happy and puts me in a good mood.”
'Cause ooh-ooh, I'm out of my mind
Two bottles into a bottle of wine
Man's in the Moon and a deer's in rut
Wind in the chimes, stars in a line
He's in the drive and I'm in love
Chills down my spine, hearts on the line
He's all mine and I'm in love
The new EP, produced by Jake Gear and Hailey Whitters, follows her rapid ascent after winning “New Female Artist of the Year” at the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards in May, where she performed her RIAA Gold-Certified hit single “Everything She Ain’t.” Yesterday, Billboard named Whitters their July 2023 all-genre Chartbreaker, calling out the success and rise of breakout single “Everything She Ain’t” that has spent 62 weeks on their Country Airplay chart and marked her first appearance on the Hot 100 chart in May.
"My last two LPs were concept records - The Dream being about my Nashville experience, and Raised was a love letter to the heartland I'm from. Both of these records are foundational to who I am. Along the way I've lived a lot of life and learned a lot about myself, and I'm excited to get more personal and straight from the heart with this next chapter. If you’ve made it this far, you know where I'm coming from. Now I'm ready to share where I've been and who I am," Hailey said in a press release.
Hailey's innate ability to find the best in a story and allow the words to come to life is sometime to awe at. Always true to herself and not afraid to be a little left of center, the reigning ACM New Female Artist is a swift return to the sounds and stories that make country music great!
Following her headlining Raised tour, supporting Shania Twain on her Queen of Me Tour, and tour dates with Dierks Bentley earlier this year, Whitters is in the midst of a festival-packed summer with performances at Country Thunder, Faster Horses, Country Jam, TidalWave Music Festival, Bourbon & Beyond, Pilgrimage Music Festival and more. This September, she will hit the road with Eric Church followed by a run of dates supporting Luke Bryan. Find a full list of tour dates below or visit HaileyWhitters.com.
