Big Loud Records has added singer-songwriter Jillian Jacqueline to its growing roster. The Pennsylvania native made her label debut at Nashville’s historic Belcourt Theatre last night (3/16), performing songs “Hate Me,” “God Bless This Mess,” “Til I See You Around,” and “Sad Girls.”

Produced by Tofer Brown, Jacqueline’s first batch of tunes will begin rolling out in April alongside full-length videos to accompany each one. Her “Prime” music video premiered on and also aired in regular rotation on CMT, which also named Jacqueline as one of their Next Women of Country for 2017.

“I am so overwhelmed by all the love I felt last night, to have all the people in Nashville that have supported me on this long, crazy road, in one room, was really magical,” exclaimed Jacqueline. “I’m so proud and grateful to my Big Loud team for giving my music a home, and I can’t wait to share more with you.”

“Jillian is truly one of those voices and talents that comes along very rarely,” says Big Loud Records’ President Clay Hunnicutt. “This is truly a ‘passion project’ from day one and we are thrilled to be lucky enough to work together on great music and more. Jillian is a woman we will be talking about for a long time, and one day we’ll say ‘do you remember the first time you heard Jillian Jacqueline?’ This is going to be special in a lot of ways!”
