Rising country star and former American Idol Contestant Kaitlyn Jackson has released her new self-titled country album, available today on iTunes, Amazon and other online retailers. This album is highly anticipated by fans nationwide who witnessed the 16-year-old make it to the final Hollywood solo rounds during 2014’s season 13 of American Idol.
This project, produced by Grammy-nominated Kent Wells, features 8 tracks all co-written by Jackson. Complete with upbeat songs about having fun with your girlfriends (“Break It Down”), staying true to yourself in the midst of love gone wrong (“I’d Rather Be Me”), and thanking God for his blessings no matter the size (“All The Little Things”), Kaitlyn’s album evokes the very best of her influences, which include Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Jo Dee Messina.
“I have always loved the sincere stories that country songs tell,” says the Norwich, NY native who grew up singing alongside her father. “By revealing pieces of myself in my music as a songwriter, I hope that people will be able to connect with me as a person, as well as with my songs."
With a voice and maturity well beyond her age, this brown-eyed girl next door is no stranger to the spotlight. Aside from being a high school honors student and class president, Kaitlyn has already opened for acts like Cole Swindell, Kristin Bush, Joe Nichols and Bryan White and has road-tripped to Nashville many times to write with hit songwriters like Marty Brown (George Strait) and Sarah Majors (Trisha Yearwood).
“I’m so excited for the future and can’t wait to see where this new album takes me,” remarks Jackson.
Kaitlyn’s infectious personality, coupled with the many years of performing under her belt and her unparalleled determination, make it very clear that she is well on her way to becoming one of the next leading ladies of country music.
