Drawing inspiration from all corners of country music, ranging from royalty like Dolly Parton and The Dixie Chicks, to younger trailblazers such as Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, and Brothers Osborne, Virginia-born singer-songwriter Lexie Hayden has honed her talent to be noticed as a young talented up and comer.
Lexie's debut EP, 'The Drive', immediately drew critical acclaim from outlets such as Whiskey Riff and The Bobby Bones Show for its lyrical story-telling and diversity. Two years later, Lexie is set to release her follow-up EP co-written and produced by co-writer Derek George.
"Go To", which was co-written by Lexie, Adam James and Stone Aielli in 2017, is a fun upbeat song which showcases the strong voice and talent of the Virginia native. Fun and upbeat is what we need to take us away for awhile and sit back to relax.
"The acoustic video for "Go To" was directed by Emma Golden. We wanted to film the the video outside to give it the same vibe as the artwork for the song," Lexie shared with Wide Open Country. "We ended up finding a really pretty spot on Belmont University's campus and made the whole video there. I love that it came out super carefree and fun because that's how the song is supposed to make people feel!"
2020 has been a busy year for this young artist, having already released four singles and three videos, including an acoustic version of her single "Relit Cigarette" with multi platinum-selling Phil Vassar. Lexie's music has garnered more than 500,000 streams and been featured on popular playlists including, Spotify’s “New Boots” and “Fresh Finds.” The singer/songwriter has been hard at work in the studio. Her upcoming EP, 'You Heard Right ', is set for release this summer.
I have followed Lexie off and on for awhile, and have been impressed with her hard work in the current tough country genre where many are trying to make their mark. I think she has earned her spot among some of the other talented women of country and will be around for awhile. To learn more stop by: https://www.lexiehayden.com.
