The duo also surprised fans with a new EP, THE NEXT EPISODE (Songs In The Key of B, LLC), available now HERE: apple.co/2vfbeV9.

About Jillian Jacqueline:
Jillian Jacqueline is part of the exciting Big Loud Records label roster. Determined to do things her own way, she is taking the music scene by storm with the release of four stunning tracks – the brutal honesty of breakup anthems “Reasons” and “Hate Me,” the true-to-yourself fun of “Bleachers,” and the heartfelt prayer of “God Bless This Mess.” The bold rising talent has intrigued Country fans and media alike with “Reasons” rocketing into Spotify’s Viral 50 USA list while gathering a striking nearly 22 million total song streams on this platform alone. Named early on as one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” and praised by American Songwriter as “catchy and radio-ready as hell,” Jacqueline was selected for CMT’s coveted Next Women of Country list, as well as the network’s tastemaking “17 for 2017” rundown of new artists to watch this year. The “dazzling chanteuse-wordsmith” (Rolling Stone) has been invited to co-write with some of the biggest hitmakers in Music City, including Craig Wiseman, Shane McAnally, Rodney Clawson, Lori McKenna and more. She spent much of the summer on the road, opening shows for Dwight Yoakam, Ryan Adams and Billy Currington. For more information, visit www.jillianjacqueline.com.
