Set to Perform Her Made-For-Football-Season Single During Halftime on December 6
While most football fans have their own definition of tailgating, Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville recording artist and songwriter RaeLynn will bring a whole new meaning to the word during her halftime performance at the Tennessee Titans v. Jacksonville Jaguars game on December 6. The breakout country star will take “Tailgate” to Thursday Night Football at Nissan Stadium with kickoff scheduled for 7:20 p.m. CST on NFL Network and FOX. Penned by Canaan Smith, Corey Crowder and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard, the made-for-football-season single has over seven million on-demand streams.
RaeLynn recently released the official music video for the “feel-good” (People) tune (watch HERE). Taste of Country credited the 2018 ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year nominee with giving “a fresh face to country music themes of daisy dukes, bare feet, and, of course, tailgates.” The flirty video features cameos from a few of her country star friends as they perfectly capture that end-of-fall feeling.
With its final date in Raelynn’s home state of Texas, the SiriusXM The Highway Presents: RaeLynn mini-tour will conclude on December 12 at the House of Blues in Houston. She will then kick off the new year on the Live Forever Tour with American Music Award’s Favorite Male Artist – Country award-winner Kane Brown in January (full dates below).

Earlier this year, RaeLynn burst back onto the music scene with the release of “Queens Don’t” – her first taste of new music since her debut record WildHorse, which arrived at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart and Top 10 on Billboard’s All-Genre Albums Sales Chart in 2017. Praised by Rolling Stone for “alternating between quiet verses bolstered by acoustic guitar strums and full-bodied choruses” and continuing her signature “progressive blend of pop and country,” the anthemic track has earned over 18 million total on-demand streams. The accompanying music video, created under the direction of Sean Hagwell, has reached over six million views on YouTube (watch HERE).
The singer / songwriter co-wrote 11 of the 12 tracks on WildHorse, which was a “People’s Picks” by People, as well as being recognized as one of the 40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2017 by Rolling Stone and a Best Country Album by UPROXX and Stereogum. Approaching 300 million cumulative career on-demand streams, RaeLynn has earned numerous award nominations from the Academy of Country Music, Radio Disney Music Awards and CMT Music Awards. She has performed on several national TV shows including TODAY, Late Night with Seth Meyers and ELLEN.
