“Go Tell It On The Mountain’ is really special to me because it’s the first Christmas song I ever learned to play,” Bryan said. “When I lived in Washington, I would sit by the fire in our house and play that song at Christmastime after decorating the tree. It was a lot of fun to get to put my own spin on it.”
This week, The New York Times included Bryan on their all-genre 54 Best Songs of 2017 list, calling her “Hard Drive Home” “an outstanding song about heartbreak.”
19-year-old Bailey Bryan, who fell in love with storytelling and songwriting at an early age, penned every track on her debut EP SO FAR, which The New York Times applauds for being “filled with rich songwriting.” Since Billboard’s“Chartbreaker” first arrived on the scene with her debut single “Own It,” critics have prepared the world to “fall in love” (PEOPLE) with the singer/songwriter. The New York Times went on to hail SO FAR (300 Entertainment/Warner Music Nashville) as “excellent, infectious” while Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly both touted Bryan as an “artist you need to know.” The Washington State native is continuing to introduce her new music to live audiences across the country and is currently on the road with Chris Lane with upcoming shows tonight in Rootstown, OH (12/8) and tomorrow in Rosemont, IL (12/9). The tour follows recent dates with Kane Brown, label-mates Dan + Shay and major summer festivals including Stagecoach, CMA Music Fest, LakeShake, Faster Horses, Watershed and more.
