RaeLynn Is An “Artist To Watch” In 2017

With her marriage to Josh Davis and a record deal signed with Warner Music Nashville, RaeLynn certainly had a big 2016, but many expect the singer to have an ever bigger 2017. In addition to having her single “Love Triangle” make many “year-end” lists, including Rolling Stone Country’s “25 Best Country Songs of 2016,” the streaming service Pandora has now named RaeLynn to their “Artists to Watch 2017” list. RaeLynn is one of only two country artists to make Pandora’s influential all-genre list, with the other being Luke Combs.

From having her heart broken to marrying the man of her dreams, RaeLynn says the record was inspired by all the highs and lows over the last few years. She says, “This album is my journey and I sure hope you find some of your journey in it, too.”

Blake Shelton Talks Touring With RaeLynn And Her New Single

Blake Shelton took to Twitter yesterday (8/16) to say some nice things about his good friend and label mate RaeLynn. Shelton began the video message by listing some of the reasons why he asked RaeLynn to join him out on tour this fall. Blake said, “First of all, because she’s amazing, and I think the more people that have a chance to see her and hear her perform the better off they’ll be for hearing her.”


  • Blake then talked about RaeLynn’s new single “Love Triangle,” a song which she wrote about her experience growing up with divorced parents. Shelton said, “I listen to it and relate to it from personal experience. And I think that everybody out there who’s from a family who’s gone through a divorce, you know, it’s not the end of the world, but there’s a pain there and there’s also a lot to think about from the standpoint of a child and this song is written from the standpoint of a child.”
  • RaeLynn will hit the road with Blake starting with a show in Oklahoma City on September 9.
