Nashville, TN (October 21, 2022) – “It’s only been five months since HunterGirl ended her journey on American Idol, where she finished in second place, but she’s already making big moves in her Country music career” (Hollywood Life). HunterGirl today releases her first new music since wrapping the show with the deeply personal track “Hometown Out Of Me.” Listen now HERE.
“My hometown has supported my dream since I was little and especially through this crazy year of my life,” share HunterGirl. “I wanted my first single following the show to be a thank you card to my hometown. The reason I get to chase my dream is because of the amazing people who have supported me. No matter where this journey takes me, I will never forget where I came from.”
Writing the song once she returned to Nashville from filming American Idol in Los Angeles, the idea came to her when she was in line at the grocery store in her hometown of Winchester, Tennessee with her mom, and noticed people in town had bought ads in their local paper to cheer her on during her Idol journey. Showing her appreciation to where she grew up and saying thank you to her community the only way she knows how, she wrote “Hometown Out Of Me” with Laura Veltz and producer Jimmy Robbins.
Currently hustling out on the road, most recently with Justin Moore and Tracey Lawrence, HunterGirl will kick-off her co-headlining tour with this year’s American Idol winner Noah Thompson on Thursday, October 27 in Columbus, Ohio.
Having shared the stage with Country’s biggest acts like Kane Brown, Florida Georgia Line, Alan Jackson, Old Dominion and more, HunterGirl catapulted to fame on this year’s American Idol, where the “Country singer with a bright future” (Hollywood Life) delivered standout performances that Taste of Country called “impressive,” “shining,” “chill-worthy,” and “glowing,” winning her the hearts of millions across the country and enthusiastic praise from Idol judge and Country superstar Luke Bryan, who applauded her as the “new age Miranda Lambert” and his “favorite female Country voice.”
“Despite missing out on the win, her crooning vocals and intimate original song, ‘Red Bird,’ has made her one to watch in the Country scene (American Songwriter). Skyrocketing to No. 1 on iTunes All Genre and Country charts, “the budding Country star” (Taste of Country) performed her heartfelt and deeply personal original track “Red Bird” on Live with Kelly & Ryan and has appeared on Good Morning America.
Now, with the release of her label debut song “Hometown Out Of Me,” driven by her distinct and genuine vocals, unwavering tenacity and heart of gold, HunterGirl is “settling in for what will be much longer than fifteen minutes of fame” (Chattanooga City Lifestyle Magazine).
