Bold next-generation star Jillian Jacqueline will join alt-Country pioneer Ryan Adams for a string of shows this weekend and early next week. Bringing her own defiant self-penned tunes, these newly added tour stops come in the midst of a cutting-edge launch to her career.
Taking the Country genre by storm, Jacqueline “seems to be everywhere these days” (American Songwriter). Determined to do things her own way, four stunning tracks have already been released – the brutal honesty of breakup anthems “Reasons” and “Hate Me,” the true-to-yourself fun of “Bleachers,” and the heartfelt prayer of “God Bless This Mess.”
Vibey videos for the first four songs are live now and the rising talent has intrigued Country fans since the beginning, gathering over 17 million song streams in total and 1.4 million monthly listeners online. She was named Amazon Music’s first-ever Weekly One artist in July.
“Reasons” rocketed into Spotify’s Viral 50 USA list upon its release, racking up over 7 million streams and landing on the platform’s coveted New Music Friday playlist in the process. The song is also currently featured on SiriusXM’s “On The Horizon” program. Meanwhile, “Hate Me” has been played 3 million times on Spotify and “Bleachers” is nearing the 2 million streams mark.
Named early on as one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” and praised by American Songwriter as “catchy and radio-ready as hell,” 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.
She has spent much of the summer opening shows for boundary-pushing Country icon Dwight Yoakam, and will be joining hit maker Billy Currington for a West Coast run starting August 4 in Henderson, Nevada.
Her debut project for Big Loud Records is currently in production, with additional details coming soon.
