As her current single “Love Triangle” continues to climb the country charts, RaeLynn is sharing more new music from her forthcoming December 2nd debut, Wildhorse. She shared a raw, stripped down acoustic version of the track “Insecure” exclusively with ET Online which fans who pre-order the album will receive as an instant grat track beginning today. In addition to “Insecure,” her single “Love Triangle,” the title track and “Diamonds” are also made available immediately upon purchase.
“I wanted this song to be like a pep talk,” she tells ET. “Like, ‘Don’t get insecure. He’s not into her. She’s playing dirty all flirty from across the room. You might think that girl’s a 10, but she doesn’t count to him.’ I love that line in the song because it’s so true. I know that I have girl crushes! When a girl walks in, I’ll be like, ‘Damn, she looks good!’ and I’m like, ‘I wonder what he thinks about her?’ But when you find a man that’s in love with you, they don’t even look at her. They just see you.”
The CMT Next Women of Country honoree and 2017 Pandora Country Artist to Watch is striking a chord with her current single “Love Triangle,” which tells a poignant story that so many listeners are relating to. Taste of Country notes that a song like this is the “kind of courageousness country music needs” and All Access raves that “Love Triangle” is “Powerful, beautifully written, expertly delivered and touchingly relatable. This one is a homerun.”
RaeLynn, who co-wrote every song on the album but one, has been waiting a long time to share more of her life story. Now with Wildhorse, co-written and co-produced by Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon, she hopes to do just that. While “Love Triangle” tells her personal story of what it was like growing up in a divorced family, the majority of the album is a look into the 2016 ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year nominee’s life over the past few years.
“Every lyric takes you through a part of my journey these last four years – this record is my college experience in a lot of ways. I graduated from high school, moved away from my parents, and started a life on my own. I fell in love, had my heart broken and then found love again. I married the man of my dreams and now we’re starting a life together. All the highs and lows from these last four years are here. I’ve always wanted to put out an album where my personality and songwriting could really shine through and I feel like WILDHORSE finally gives fans a true glimpse into who I am as an artist and a young woman.”
“This album is my journey and I sure hope you find some of your journey in it, too,” says RaeLynn.
