With a new single, “Queen’s Don’t,” a Too Faced Cosmetics Line, a spot on the Next Women of Country Tour and a nomination for ACM New Female Artist of the Year, RaeLynn’s year is starting off with a bang.
While the ACM award went to Lauren Alaina, the “Love Triangle” singer was just happy to be nominated.
“It honestly just feels like—being nominated is such a dream come true, but getting noticed by the ACM is just an honor,” RaeLynn tells One Country. “It’s just so cool that when all of us work so hard, and when you see something like that, it just seems like the work is paying off.”
Paying off it is, the 23-year-old is set to release her third studio album later this year. The new offering will feature her current single, “Queen’s Don’t.”
In the meantime, One Country sat down with Rae to get a little deeper. We wanted to find out some random things that really make her tick.
