'The Voice' Alumna RaeLynn Parts Ways With Big Machine's Valory Music Co.
While she has parted ways with Valory as a recording artist, she remains signed to Big Machine as a songwriter.
Season two Voice alumna RaeLynn has parted ways with Big Machine Label Group's Valory Music Co., the country singer confirmed today.
In an interview with The Boot, RaeLynn said she has parted ways with Valory as a recording artist, while she remains signed to Big Machine as a songwriter.
Following her run on The Voice, RaeLynn signed with Republic Nashville and was a background singer for her coach, Blake Shelton, on his 2013 single, "Boys 'Round Here." In 2014, RaeLynn scored a top 10 hit with "God Made Girls," which went to No. 7 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart. The following year, she released the EP, Me. Her next single, "For a Boy," peaked at No. 32.
"They did everything in their power," she said. "'God Made Girls' was such a success for me. I am so blessed to have over half a million downloads on that song. I was the highest-charting new female in 2014 and I couldn't have done that without Big Machine and their support."
RaeLynn said she is still working on recording songs for her new album and has "a lot of great shows" booked through the end of May.
The 21-year old Texas native, who recently married her longtime boyfriend Josh Davis this year, said she is "excited about this new journey" in her career.
"We're recording this record, and I'm just so passionate about it. It's like my kid; it's like my child, this record," she said. "I'm going to nurture it and make sure it's the most perfect thing before I put it out. That's why I've been so picky about it."
