Delta Rae raises their voices with an empowering new anthem that calls for persistent resisters to get their “Hands Dirty” and vote for equality. Released October 19 on The Valory Music Co., the unflinching lyrics were a culmination of gender biases and resurfaced wounds in the #MeToo movement era. Opening up about her own personal experience lead vocalist Brittany Holljes wrote the song alongside her brother and bandmate Ian. She spoke with The Washington Post about being a woman in Country music and how the industry has reacted. In print now, read the full article HERE.

Each Wednesday night through December 19, Delta Rae performs activism-invoking songs like “Hands Dirty” and more from their hearty catalogue during their residency at The Basement in Nashville. Their immersive musical experience is aptly titled The Delta Rae Revival and features fresh openers plus special guests in addition to their 90-minute headline set. Tickets are still available for the intimate shows and can be purchased at DeltaRae.com.

10 Quick Quirky Halloween Questions with Delta Rae’s Brittany Holljes

  1. Favorite Halloween Costume?  Liz and I were Anna and Elsa from Frozen the year it came out. We made our costumes from stuff we got at goodwill, very low tech. All the little ones were also dressed as Elsa and Anna, but they thought we were the real ones, so we got to pretend to be. Disney princess dreams come true!
  2. Haunted Houses or Hay Rides?  Tough one. Haunted House for everyone else in the band. Hayride is scary enough for me.
  3. Favorite Halloween Candy?  Reese’s
  4. Least Favorite Halloween Candy?  Tootsie Rolls
  5. How old is too old to go trick-or-treating?  After 16 you better be a chaperone!
  6. Favorite Scary Movie?  The Ring.
  7. Chocolate or Hard Candy?  Chocolate
  8. What is the most scary or disturbing song you have ever heard?  We all love the mystery behind Bobbie Gentry’s Ode to Billie Joe. It doesn’t ever say what happened, but we always interpret it in the darkest way possible.
  9. Do you believe in ghosts?  Yes. A few of us even live with them, but they are friendly ghosts, so we’re cool.
  10. Have you Ever Played Bloody Mary or Light as a Feather Stiff as a Board? Did it Work?  Don’t dabble in those dark arts, easy to open the portal, not so easy to close it back up!
