RaeLynn made her debut, yesterday (03/24), with full project “Wildhorse,” which hit the #1 spot on iTunes Country Album. The excitement continues with a trio of high-profile engagements, including the founding of a charitable fund for childhood diabetes patients in her name.
RaeLynn also founded her own charity, THE RAELYNN DIABETES FUND and was honored by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, who proclaimed 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.
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.
RaeLynn stated to us how this is the project where she got to say what she wanted and became vulnerable as an artist with the music.
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.
