“As a teenager who loves country music, it was hard to relate to the lyrics of songs that I heard on the radio.” says Bailey James adding, “I thought, I could do this and with the help of my parents and great professionals in Nashville, we created an exciting debut record.”
While she is only 13 years old, Bailey James has a voice beyond her years. The young songstress will release her full length debut album, Where It All Begins, on April 29th. The first single from the collection entitled, “Texas Swing,” is a pleasant traditional country tune that any fan looking for an alternative to terrestrial radio should be happy to hear. Co-written with her producer, Dave Norris and writer/vocalist Lala Deaton, “Texas Swing” is youthful, fun and innocent, with a hummable melody that tells a sweet tale of young love and a swing hanging from the weeping willow tree.
“Sitting here waiting on my baby
Here he comes hand full of daisies
Mama said he’s cute
I said ain’t he”
