This Month's Spotlight Artist is none other than Nashville recording artist Bailey James.
Bailey James is lighting up Music City with her sophisticated soulful country music. Currently charting on BILLBOARD with her previous single "Finally Free", Bailey is poised to break out in 2022. Her swiftly growing audience celebrates her fresh musical adaptation that is well beyond her years, including country roots infused with blues, rock-n-roll and soul.
A multi-genre vocalist, guitarist and songwriter with over 250,000 fans across her social media platforms, Bailey’s single “Finally Free” was recently named “Opry Circle Release of the Week.” Bailey, a radio road warrior, has charted numerous times on Music Row's Country Breakout Chart, including a top 40. She is also a Golden Ticket alum of American Idol 2019. Bailey has the honor of being a member of the Song Suffragettes, an all-female country music singer-songwriter weekly showcase in Nashville.
Bailey is dedicated to raising awareness for suicide prevention through education and empowerment. She was named the First National Youth Advocate for the Jason Foundation, to which this honor places Bailey alongside longtime Jason Foundation musical ambassadors Rascal Flatts and the late Charlie Daniels. She also started her own Mental Health/Suicide prevention awareness movement, ‘The Finally Free Movement’ in honor of her brother, Zane.

Most memorable musical moment: Singing the National Anthem in front of Charlie Daniels for his charity event definitely is up there!
Most embarrassing/unexpected musical moment: This one happened on stage. I had those stick on bra cups and it was so hot and I was sweating so bad that they fell off in the middle of my performance and I tried to casually kick them off the stage🤣
What's next following the release of 'The Crow'?
I have a song called I Can Put The Devil Through Hell which I’m thinking of releasing next! Not written in stone. It’s very country rock.
What's a random or fun fact we may not know about you? I was trained by a world renowned Opera singer at the age of 11 up until I moved to Tennessee. Thank you again for always supporting and just being one of the kindest most amazing people on the planet. Love you lots❤️
