Hailey Whitters To Release ‘The Dream’ In February

Singer-songwriter Hailey Whitters, known for penning songs including Little Big Town’s “Happy People,” will release her new album The Dream on Feb. 28.

The 12-track album includes 10 songs penned by Whitters, alongside top-shelf female co-writers including Lori McKenna, Hillary Lindsey, Brandy Clark, and Nicolle Galyon. The Dream also includes two cover tracks—renditions of Chris Stapleton’s “The Devil Always Made Me Think Twice,” and Brent Cobb’s “Loose Strings.”

Whitters funded the project herself, with money earned from waiting tables, selling a guitar, touring, and from royalties earned from writing songs recorded by Alan Jackson, McBride and Little Big Town. BMG’s Jake Gear produced the album, with Logan Matheny overseeing engineering and mixing.

“This is the first record that feels 100 percent me. It’s a time capsule of my time in Nashville and coming to terms with dreams and what they mean to you,” says Whitters.

Whitters spent much of 2019 on tour alongside Maren Morris, Cobb, and McKenna. She also released the singles “Ten Year Town” and “Heartland,” and will release her latest, “Janice At The Hotel Bar,” on Jan. 24. Last year, she also inked a co-management deal with Make Wake’s Chris Kappy and BRND MGMT’s Matt Graham.

She will celebrate the release of The Dream with a show at Nashville’s Basement East on March 10, with tickets going on sale Friday, Jan. 10. She will also join Tanya Tucker as part of the CMT Next Women of Country: Bring My Flowers Now Tour, and will join dates on Jordan Davis’ Trouble Town Tour.
