Rising Star Spends Release Day Making THE RAELYNN DIABETES FUND First Donation At Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston Mayor Proclaims “RAELYNN DAY” Also Making Surprise Appearance At RODEOHOUSTON And Singing Powerful First Single “LOVE TRIANGLE” On ELLEN Spunky free spirit and Texas native RAELYNN is today (3/24) celebrating the release of her years in the making debut album, WILDHORSE, which catapulted to #1 on the iTunes Country Albums chart and #3 All Genre Albums chart upon release. The excitement continues with a trio of high-profile engagements, including the founding of a charitable fund for childhood diabetes patients in her name. Appearing at the Texas Children’s Hospital this afternoon, RaeLynn will make the first donation to THE RAELYNN DIABETES FUND and will in turn be honored by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, who will proclaim March 24, 2017 as “RAELYNN DAY.” Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 12, the rising star credits Texas Children’s Hospital with saving her life and is now proud to pay her blessings forward. “I have been counting down to this day for so long that I can’t even believe it is finally here,” exclaims RaeLynn. “And, to be able to celebrate in my hometown and give back to the hospital that helped make all of my dreams come true makes it that much more special.” Later in the day, RaeLynn will also perform a pop-up outdoor concert at the massive RodeoHouston festival, and appear on ELLEN to sing her album’s powerful first single, “Love Triangle” – a heart-wrenching divorce ballad told from the point of view of a little girl. Praised by NPR for its “finely drawn images and subtle shifts in perspective,” “Love Triangle” is currently Top 30 and rising at Country radio. It’s offering the first real taste of an album which bucks convention at every turn to reveal an artist with an untamed soul while gathering millions of online streams to date. Produced by Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon, WILDHORSE (Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville) tells the story of RaeLynn’s life following her breakthrough on The Voice – four years that have seen her move to Nashville, release hit songs like “God Made Girls,” and get married. Full of personal touches, RaeLynn co-wrote 11 of the album’s 12 songs, even basing the anthemic “WildHorse” title track on a touching, cross-generational poem written about RaeLynn’s mother by her grandmother. Following WILDHORSE’s release, RaeLynn will begin her first-ever headlining tour. Kicking off on April 20 in Columbus, Ohio, the RaVe TOUR will give country fans a concert experience like they’ve never had before, combining a Radio Disney-curated playlist, full performance from RaeLynn and a glitter-filled dance party with a live DJ after the show. The complete list of RaVe TOUR dates and information on ticket sales can be found at www.raelynn.com.
Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville rising star RAELYNN has some amazing things in store for the March 24 release of her debut album WILDHORSE, including a performance of her current single “Love Triangle” on the multiple Emmy Award-winning show ELLEN. “I’ve been watching Ellen my whole life, I think she’s one of the funniest people,” she says. “I’ve always thought it be so cool to be on that show and now I AM! It’s a dream come true. I pray she dances with me. Meanwhile, tickets and VIP experiences for RaeLynn’s just-announced RaVe Tour are now available to purchase here. Already featuring a Radio Disney Country-curated playlist, full-band performance and an after-show dance party DJ’d by RaeLynn herself, the RaVe Tour’s VIP experience will also include photo opportunities, a meet and greet with RaeLynn, exclusive tour souvenirs and early venue access (where applicable). RaeLynn has also been honored with a nomination from the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards, earning praise from young fans as “Love Triangle” – a breathtaking divorce ballad told from a child’s perspective – continues to climb the country radio charts and earn millions of digital streams. Chosen for inclusion in THE FRESHEST! – RADIO DISNEY COUNTRY BEST NEW ARTIST category, RaeLynn will compete to become the fan-picked winner when the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards air April 30 at 7 p.m. ET on the Disney Channel.

Fans who follow her on Spotify will unlock exclusive access to a new “WildHorse” live video, filmed during her last round of performances on Shelton’s tour.

The remainder of the 12-track album, 11 of which were co-written by RaeLynn herself, is a broader look into her life over the past few years since her breakthrough on NBC’s hit show, The Voice.

RaeLynn Premiers Her New Single, “Boyfriend,” On The Voice. Last night we found out that another contestant wouldn’t be making it to the finals. Trevin Hunte was eliminated, leaving the top 3 of season 3. Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott remain for Blake Shelton‘s team and Nicholas David for CeeLo Green’s team. A contestant from last season, a Shelton team member, also made an appearance last night. RaeLynn premiered her new single, “Boyfriend.” Although she didn’t win, or make the top finals, RaeLynn does have a record deal with Republic Nashville.
