RaeLynn is a burgeoning young country star who just released her second album "Wildhorse". She first came to fame in 2012 during the second season of the "The Voice". RaeLynn became a protégé of Blake Shelton following "The Voice". RaeLynn co-wrote and performed the song "Lie" with Miranda Lambert which became her first song to chart. She followed that by appearing on Blake Shelton's 2013 single "Boys 'Round Here" which peaked at #16 on the country charts. In 2014 RaeLynn's debut single "God Made Girls" was an instant hit and charted at #7. Her new album "Wildhorse" was released on March 24, 2017 and debuted as the #1 album on the Billboard country charts and the #20 album in all of music.
RaeLynn is from Baytown, Texas and has been working towards being a professional musician since she was 15. While just 22 years old, she already has founded her own charity "The RaeLynn Diabetes Fund" as she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 12. RaeLynn comes to Great Falls with deep military ties as both her brother is in the US Army Special Forces and her husband recently joined the armed services as well.
