“Flaming Red” is the debut single for Executive Music artist Jessica Ridley. To help country radio promotion efforts, Ridley has teamed up with Nashville’s Nine North Records.
“Flaming Red” is from Ridley’s debut album Fit To Be Tied, which features 13 tracks showcasing her distinctive vocal style. Jessica co-wrote four of the songs, and other writers represented on the album are James Dean Hicks (Kenny Chesney), Bob Carlisle (“Butterfly Kisses”), Jeff Silvey (George Strait), Billy Simon (Mark Wills) and Bill Champlin (former frontman for the group Chicago), among others. Producer Chris Omartian also contributed.
Ridley grew up in western Canada, where she dreamt of becoming a country singer. While her friends were listening to whatever was popular on the radio, Jessica was listening to George Strait, Reba McEntire, Shania Twain and Martina McBride. She will soon relocate to Nashville, but admits the balancing act has helped inspire her.
“Success to me is getting to do what I love and making a living at it,” she says. “People ask me all the time how I do it, and I tell them, ‘When you’re doing what you’re meant to be doing, it gives you energy instead of taking it away.’ Singing gives me so much joy. It’s something I love and I’ve always loved. I’m just so excited that now I can do it as a career.”
