There’s a sound that hasn’t been heard on country radio in quite some time – the sound of organic, three-part female harmonies, ringing strings and stories that speak the language of modern women everywhere. It’s a sound that was the backbone of a little group known as The Dixie Chicks, and now it’s making a comeback through a vocal trio named Runaway June.
Rootsy, brightly coloured and mixing bluegrass tradition with dusty desert cool, Runaway June is comprised of three very different women who fuse their own influences to create a style country fans have been craving.
With their debut single, “Lipstick,” Runaway June became the first all-female trio in over a DECADE to score a Top 25 hit. With the help of the trio’s follow-up Top 40 single “Wild West” the breakout trio earned a 2018 ACM nomination for “New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year”.
With their current single “Buy My Own Drinks,” co-written by Runaway June and Hillary Lindsey and Josh Kear, the trio is primed to cement their identity as one of the best new groups in the genre.
Their forthcoming EP, produced by acclaimed producer Dan Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Steven Tyler Thomas Rhett, Brett Young), is a collection of songs that highlight different sides of the group while leaving the listener understanding exactly what kind of ride they are in for with Runaway June. With eclectic personalities, a listen through of their songs makes seemingly disparate images such as gypsy bohemian chic, sunsets over sand and ocean, and roots in bluegrass and classic western all blend into one timeless vibe.
Abby Anderson was born to be on stage. The singer/songwriter has a smile that can light up any room, a personality as big as the state she hails from, and a voice that can captivate any audience. Anderson developed a love for country music at a young age, and decided she was going to move to Nashville to chase her dreams. At the age of 14, she approached her father to reveal her plans to finish school early and move to Tennessee. Much to her surprise, he promised to support her decision 100 percent. Three years later, Anderson and her mom packed up the car and drove to Nashville. With Elvis Presley, one of Abby's musical heroes playing through the speakers, the 17-year-old found herself in Music City and she's never looked back.
Her debut EP, I'm Good, captures all sides of the vivacious 21-year-old's personality. Pulling from her musical influences like Linda Rondstat, Aretha Franklin, and The Judds, the five-song project exudes confidence and puts her soulful vocals on display. From the sassy title track, to the vulnerable "This Feeling," to the rollicking "Naked Truth," the project is a perfect introduction to the rising star.
Officially coming into the spotlight in 2018, Anderson has already garnered several impressive accolades from the country music community. She was named one of CMT's Next Women of Country and earned a slot on Pandora's "2018 Country Artists to Watch" list. Abby spent the majority of the year opening up for artists such as Russell Dickerson and Chase Rice and wrapped up her year on the road with Devin Dawson and Brett Eldredge on the fall leg of The Long Way Tour.
She's now ready to embark on the next chapter of her career. With her debut EP available now and her Grand Ole Opry debut still fresh on her mind, Anderson is thrilled to bring her energetic live show to fans everywhere.
Here’s why God made RaeLynn. Because country music needed her. Because America needed to fall in love. Now, following up on the success of her 2014 gold-certified debut single “God Made Girls,” with the release of her Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville debut album, there’s one more reason: Because the time has come for her to blossom as an undeniable force of nature with roots deeply planted in tradition and a finger on the pulse of life.
On WildHorse, we hear that same warmth and accessibility and sense the same buoyant personality that ushered her into the spotlight on NBC’s “The Voice.” But she was only 17 years old then, her appeal defined in part by her innocence and openness to all that lie ahead. She’s still young but at 23 she can apply a deeper dimension to those qualities. That same Texas twang colors her voice; add to it a new sophistication, a broader palette, with a maturity in her ability to deliver a performance, and you’ve got something special.
You’ve got WildHorse, which has been heralded as Best Country Album of 2017 by UPROXX, Stereogum and Rolling Stone, solidifying the project as the next step on RaeLynn’s path toward true stardom.
“I grew up listening to singers whose voices were a little eccentric like Duffy and Ingrid Michaelson, along with Shania Twain and The Civil Wars,” said RaeLynn. “When I first moved to Nashville I use to try and make my voice sound different, but I finally realized it already sounded different.” Along with her distinct voice and a writing style that is rooted in her upbringing, she distils a sound that is unquestionably her own.
That uniqueness comes though immediately on WildHorse. She co-wrote almost every song on the album and shows no fear in tackling any subject with honesty and sensitivity.
“When I recorded WildHorse I had no bugs in my ear, nobody telling me what to do,” she continues. “I’ve shaken everything off. With this music, I’m completely myself. I want to keep making music that resonates with fans and touches people and makes them feel like they’re on top of the world. Even if it takes a couple of records to get there, I’m gonna do it.”
