Featured Artist of the Week – Bailey

Bio:

Bailey’s radio success as an independent artist has been sensational to say the very least. Her sophomore released album on BEG Records has already gone on to claim her two top 10 hits, “Boys in Boots” & “Space”! Her newest release “Catch Me Falling” already looks like another chart topper as it continues to climb the charts.

Bailey has been really busy the last 24 months with all that she has accomplished. She started off last year with a bang when she won $10,000.00 dollars in the American Idol Internet contest where her fans voted for her during the online contest. She kicked 2007 off with a bang by winning Music Row’s Break-Out Country Artist of the Year at Country Radio Seminar 2007 in Nashville, TN in February of this year.

Bailey has quickly become Music Row’s newest darling in country music with her heart felt vocals and her crafty written lyrics. She proved her popularity with radio listener’s in 2006 & early 2007 by pulling in 28,000 radio spins in just 12 short months at 105 monitored radio stations on Music Row in Nashville. The fans and listeners support at radio are all part of her grass roots success to date and her singles just keep climbing the charts everytime she releases one. All of this success is creating a ground swell in country music and most people are starting to sit up and take notice of this petite, green eyed, blonde haired sweet heart of country music.

    TRD: When you’re not performing what do you like to do with your spare time?
