Hailey Withers released a new EP on July 28th, 2023 via Pegasus / Songs & Girls / Big Load.
The title track from the EP is out now and the music video should follow this Friday (July 14). You can listen to the song at the top of this article. As she explores relationships, heartbreak and love, Withers taps into her ’90s country influences on “I’m in Love.”
Of the song, Withers explained, “The minute I heard this song I knew I had to record it. I didn’t write it (Nicole Gallon, Lee Miller, and Cameron Bedell did), but I wish I had. I love – pun intended – the exotic language and spirit. Every time I sing, I smile like a big ol’ sap because it makes me so happy and puts me in such a good mood.”
Of the EP, Withers added: “My last two LPs were concept records – ‘The Dream’ was about my experience in Nashville, and ‘Grown Up’ was a love letter to the heartland where I came from. Both of these records are the foundation of who I am. I’ve lived a lot of life and learned a lot about myself along the way, and I’m excited to get more personal and direct from my heart in the next chapter. If you’ve made it this far, you know where I’m coming from. I am now ready to share where I have been and who I am.
Produced by Jake Gere and Hayley Withers, the new EP follows Withers’ quick journey to winning Best New Female Artist at the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards in May.
Headlining her ‘Arise’ tour, she’s supported Shania Twain on her Queen tour, and following tour dates with Dierks Bentley earlier this year, Withers is in the midst of a festival-packed summer with Country Thunder, Fast Horses, Country Jam, TidalWave Music Festival, Bourbon & Beyond, Pilgrimage Music Festival and more.
This September, she’ll hit the road with Eric Church, followed by a series of dates supporting Luke Bryan.
