One of her earliest memories, Bailey Hefley remembers telling her mother that she wanted to be a country singer at just three years old. By the time she was five, Bailey battled seizures and was bullied as a result. Finding inspiration from LeAnn Rimes, Faith Hill, and Shania Twain, Bailey continued to follow her dream of music. In fact, she tells us “music gave me a purpose, an escape from what was happening in reality.”
Through the battle, Bailey took up singing lessons, performing in her hometown, and even made the trip to Nashville where she later attended Belmont University. Now writing her own music, Bailey views her songs like a photo album you can go back and look on. Her lyrics are honest and tell a story. Bailey’s song “Gotta Find Out” was taken from personal experience, about a blind date and whether a man will be “a blessin’ or a lesson.”
Through the pandemic, Bailey has been staying hopeful saying it’s “A brief pause to reflect on all I've been through, all I've been given, and all I've yet to do… My 2020 is not about hindsight; it's about a clear vision into my future and a hope that these songs can inspire others to chase their dreams and never give up on themselves."
