Monday, April 3, 2017
– RaeLynn will have the number one country disc in the U.S. when the Billboard charts are out Tuesday. "WildHorse" moved 16,000 units in its first week.
The release marks RaeLynn's the release of the Texan's first full-length release and debut on Warner.
"This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me," RaeLynn said Sunday night. "Having a single that's in the Top 30 and a number 1 debut record is a dream come true. I feel overwhelmingly grateful and honored to be included in the company of the handful of other women who have debuted at number 1 with their first record. The fans who I've met over the past five years really showed up for this record. So I share this number 1 with all of them and my team and country radio. It's for all of us. Real music that connects is always gonna win."
The first single is "Love Triangle."

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. ...
