RaeLynn slows down release of "WildHorse"
Monday, November 21, 2016
– RaeLynn's debut, "WildHorse," was slated to drop Dec. 2 on a new label.
But that's been pushed off until next year, apparently due to a tour she is doing with Blake Shelton. The tour was announced today, and RaeLynn will open the shows.
"We were initially targeting a release for this year, but an amazing opportunity has come along that's changed the way I'm thinking about my debut album launch," said RaeLynn.
No release date was mentioned.
"Love Triangle" is the first single on the disc, a song about being the child of divorced parents. "WildHorse" features 12 songs, 11 of which were co-written by RaeLynn, including "Love Triangle," the title track and "Diamonds," a song the newlywed wrote about her husband.

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 ...
Call it the Kellie Pickler model of success. Take one perky blonde persona, throw in some aw-shucks Southern charm and top it off with a throwback singing style to charm your way onto a game show. It sure worked well for Racheal Lynn Woodward. 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. He put her on his smash "Boys Round Here" and wife Miranda Lambert took her on tour. ...
