RAELYNN CELEBRATES 100 MILLION STREAMS OF LATEST INDEPENDENT ALBUM BAYTOWN WITH SOME SPARKLE
MARKED THE OCCASION WITH A CUSTOM DANIELXDIAMOND DENIM JACKET
PLATINUM Country star RaeLynn just passed a major milestone, reaching 100 MILLION global streams on her album BAYTOWN. Released in September 2021 on Round Here Records, BAYTOWN celebrates RaeLynn’s Texas hometown and all the ways it shaped her into the person she is today.
To commemorate the project reaching such a special number, RaeLynn’s team surprised her with a custom DanielXDiamond white denim jacket with rhinestone fringe detailing, emblazoned with “BAYTOWN” and “100 MILLION.” The lettering is accompanied by a message reading "empowered women empower women" as well as a number of daisy patches honoring RaeLynn's daughter Daisy Rae, who was born in September.
“This year will be my 10th year living in Nashville,” RaeLynn shares. “I’ve released a lot of music that I’m proud of, but BAYTOWN was my first independent release as an artist. I was nervous, but I had faith because I knew my fans believed in me and the music I was writing. Reaching 100 MILLION streams has proved to me that taking chances and continuing to follow what feels uncomfortable is always the way to go. The music I release going forward will always have the spirit and confidence I had while creating BAYTOWN. Fearless, Vulnerable, Bold and always Country.”
BAYTOWN was praised by critics, with Lyric Magazine calling the 14-song project “honest, raw and incredibly personal” while American Songwriter declared that RaeLynn has “as many blessings under her belt as on the horizon.” Music Row deemed BAYTOWN "heartfelt," "entertaining" and "revealing" and Sounds Like Nashville opined that "diverse sounds make for beautiful harmony."
“Rae’s like our little sis and we’re so proud to have championed BAYTOWN on Round Here Records,” shares Brian Kelley. “We love watching you shine, Rae! Congratulations on 100 MILLION global streams!”
“We feel extremely blessed to have known Rae for many years now, and have watched her maintain a clear vision of who she is – both as an artist and person,” adds Tyler Hubbard. “BAYTOWN reflects all that she is and more, and we’re just so happy for her continued success.” In May, RaeLynn will join Kane Brown for select shows of his BLESSED & FREE TOUR, making stops in Alabama, Georgia, Florida and New Hampshire. She also has new music on the way for fans soon. See RaeLynn’s full list of tour dates here.
