Of her National TV debut, Bannen shared with Hoda and Willie,

“I guess I’ve just been thinking a lot about how our stories don’t unfold the way we think they are going to, or on the timeline. Sometimes, that just makes you that much more thankful for the opportunity.” 

Favorite Colors was released independently, and is loaded with the type of wit, playfulness and fierceness that Bannen is known for. She co-wrote all 14 songs across the album, which was featured by Billboard, People, iHeart, Rolling Stone, CMT and more. Most recently, Bannen was named in Nashville Lifestyles Most Beautiful Class of 2019 (on stands now).

Favorite Colors is the follow up to Bannen’s EP The Joneses, which proved successful early on with the debut of a trio of tracks including “Happy Birthday,” “John Who” and “The Joneses” across SiriusXM’s The Highway. Several of the songs on Favorite Colors have since been featured with Billboard revealing the track for Bannen’s song “Diamonds,” (HERE), sharing the video for “Faith In You” ft. Heather Hardy ‘The Heat’ (HERE) and CMT debuting the video for swaggering track “Deluxe” (HERE). 
Favorite Colors was produced by Jaren Johnston (The Cadillac Three), and features a roster of collaborators including songwriters Claire Douglas, Todd Clark and Will Bowen, with three tracks also produced by Bowen. Favorite Colors is available (HERE).

Known for her whit, the Nashville native is also the host of the podcast This Nashville Life, which The Washington Post called, “…fascinating glimpses behind the scenes…” This Nashville Life features guest interviews, industry tips and insights from top-level music business executives and creatives, and has quickly gained popularity with welcomed guests including Tim Nichols, Craig Wiseman and Jason Owen.
