RaeLynn is taken to school - lots of them

Tuesday, March 17, 2015 – RaeLynn was taken to school - lots of them - last week to celebrate music in the schools.

The singer went on a week-long bus tour celebrating the 30th Anniversary of National Music In Our Schools Month. For the final stop on Saturday, she invited students from Nashville's Head Middle Magnet School to join her for a bucket list moment on the revered stage - performing "Always Sing" together.

RaeLynn penned "Always Sing" for the initiative and gave a special concert in each community with a set that also featured "For A Boy" and her Gold-certified "God Made Girls," which marked the highest charting debut single by a solo female artist in 2014. Radio Disney's on-air personality Brooke Taylor hosted the on-site activities along the way while student ensembles kicked off each night with their versions of "Always Sing."

Throughout the tour with National Association for Music Education, Give a Note Foundation and Radio Disney to share the message that music belongs in the schools, RaeLynn documented her stops with daily updates at RaeLynnBusTour.com and using #AlwaysSing on Twitter..

Tour stops were:

Day 1: Walt Disney World Resort (Orlando, FL) - Experiencing music and Disney World.

Day 2: Sayville High School (Sayville, NY) - New York City media blitz at Today, NASH and iHeartbefore heading to the first school visit.

Day 3: Bowie High School (Bowie, MD) - A visit to Washingtoin before heading to the school.

Day 4: Mason Elementary (Canton, OH) - Learn the story behind "Always Sing" as the Music In Our Tour rolls along Day 5: Ridgeview Elementary (Hobart, IN) - RaeLynn takes the message of music education to the Chicago area

CD review - Baytown Country music should put in the by-laws that there must always be heirs to Dolly on the charts. We've seen plenty of ladies who overdo the sex appeal or come across a little aloof (would Shania really have a beer with you?). The world needs women who are spiritual and free-spirits, who remember when folks sang with twang. To that end, we present RaeLynn, now on Florida Georgia Line's label. For all her songwriting strength ("Love Triangle" was a high mark) and ...
CD review - WildHorse Someone needs to inform karma that Raelynn is not getting what she deserves. It takes a lot of work to mess this equation up: national TV exposure (from "The Voice"), a monster hit (2014's "God Made Girls") and famous friends who've practically adopted you (like Blake Shelton). This is all atop her twangy Texan charm and very capable singer/songwriter chops. But somehow Raelynn's overseers made headshaking decisions. Last time out, they strategically released two ...

CD review - Me Call it the Kellie Pickler model of success.

While the native Texan -- then in her teens and now 20 - didn't win season two of The Voice, she certainly warmed her way into Blake Shelton's heart.
