Whitters announces "I'm in Love"

Wednesday, July 12, 2023 – Hailey Whitters announced a new six-song EP "I'm In Love" is coming July 28 via Pigasus / Songs & Daughters / Big Loud.

The title track was released today ahead of the official video for the song arriving this Friday. While previous releases "Where The Dream" focused on Whitters' experience in Nashville and "Raised" looked back on her life in the heartland, "I'm In Love" finds Whitters tapping into her '90s country influences while exploring relationships, heartbreak and finding love.

"I knew the minute I heard this song I had to record it. I didn't write it (Nicolle Galyon, Lee Miller and Cameron Bedell did), but I wish I had. I love - pun intended - the quirky language and spirit. Every time I sing it I'm smiling like a big ol sap because it just makes me so happy and puts me in a good mood."

"My last two LPs were concept records – 'The Dream' being about my Nashville experience, and 'Raised' was a love letter to the heartland I'm from. Both of these records are foundational to who I am. Along the way I've lived a lot of life and learned a lot about myself, and I'm excited to get more personal and straight from the heart with this next chapter. If you've made it this far, you know where I'm coming from. Now I'm ready to share where I've been and who I am."

The new EP, produced by Jake Gear and Whitters, follows her winning New Female Artist of the Year at the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards in May, where she performed her RIAA gold-certified hit single "Everything She Ain't."

The track list is:
I'm In Love EP Tracklist 1. Tie'r Down (Hailey Whitters, Rodney Clawson, Chris La Corte) 2. Countryside Chick (Hailey Whitters, Matt Roy, Brett Tyler) 3. I'm In Love (Cameron Bedell, Nicolle Galyon, Lee Thomas Miller) 4. Mellencamp (Nicolle Galyon, Mark Holman, Jordan Minton) 5. Bad Love (Hailey Whitters, Hillary Lindsey, Jimmy Robbins) 6.

CD reviews for Hailey Whitters

CD review - I'm In Love Hailey Whitters smartly plays with words on the title track to this six-song EP. "He's in a Chevy/And I'm in love," she explains contrastingly. With its upfront mandolin part, the track nicely resembles Whitters' hit, "Everything She Ain't," which is reprised on this release - albeit more acoustically. It may not be as conceptual as Whitters' full-length, "Raised," was, but this smaller offering nevertheless covers familiar and enjoyable Whitters territory. ...
CD review - Raised Hailey Whitters' "Raised" album is very much a biographical collection. From the title cut to the extended family sung about during "Big Family," Whitters sings again and again about her relatives and upbringing. She doesn't have to say the words 'small town' for the listener to know without a doubt she's telling us about country living. It's also an album built upon solid, traditional instrumentation, which makes it all the better. ...
CD review - Living the Dream Hailey Whitters has reissued her "The Dream" album as "Living The Dream" with five bonus collaboration songs. With these added treats, it makes a good album even better. The weakest of the new additions is "Fillin' My Cup" with Little Big Town. LBT is gaining a reputation as a drinking song group, when that vocal act's best songs go so much deeper than merely celebrating adult beverages. "How to Break a Heart," which features fellow A-level ...
