Singer-Songwriter, Best Known for "God Made Girls;" Former Contestant on "The Voice"

RaeLynn was born in a very musical family who sang at church. One of her inspirations was her brother Jake who is part of Grammy nominated band Leeland. At the age of 11, she took interest in country music after listening to "Me and Charlie Talking" by Miranda Lambert. She graduated at the top of her class in 2011. In her early teens, she began to pick up her guitar more frequently and started writing more songs.

RaeLynn auditioned for the second season of The Voice after being encouraged by a contestant on Team Adam who wrote songs with her. Her audition song was "Hell on Heels" by Pistol Annies, a group whom Miranda Lambert is a part of. Both Adam Levine and Blake Shelton wanted her on their teams, but she eventually chose Team Blake. She sang "Free Fallin'" against Adley Stump in the Battle Rounds and won. Her victory was however highly contested, and her coach, Blake, publicly defended his choice in a Twitter war. She then went on to the live shows to perform "Wake Up Call" by Maroon 5 and "She's Country" by Jason Aldean, and the latter later became her bestselling cover on the show. For her last-chance performance, she sang "If I Die Young" by The Band Perry.

She has since performed a song co-written with Miranda Lambert entitled "Lie", and returned with fellow finalists Chris Mann and Juliet Simms to perform at the semifinal results show on the third season of The Voice, performing her new single, "Boyfriend." "Boyfriend" later charted on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart, which acts as a 25-song extension to the Hot 100, thus making her the first contestant to chart on one of Billboard's overall singles charts for post-The Voice activity." The single sold 27,000 copies in its debut week.

She is featured as backing vocals on Blake Shelton's 2013 single, "Boys 'Round Here", which debuted at No. 67 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, and peaked at No. 16. The song is also featured on Shelton's album, "Based on a True Story…."

RaeLynn's debut single to country radio, "God Made Girls," was released in July 2014.
