Haley Mae Campbell~ “Q&A” (New Single & EP)!!!

unnamed.jpg

  1. Hi Haley, how have you grown as a country singer in 2018?

-In 2018 so far, I have had some incredible opportunities that have helped me grow as a country artist. I started the year living in Nashville, had the opportunity to play Whiskey Jam, have co-written with so many new writers, and have been able to push outside of my comfort zone to develop my own personal sound.

  1. How did you come up with the name of your new EP “Lover’s Lottery?”

-The title of my new EP comes from a song on the record called “Take a Chance”. It was actually originally released on my first record back in 2015. However, I’ve always loved the song and felt that it deserved to be re-vamped for the EP! When I was choosing a title for the EP, I was combing through the lyrics to all the songs, and “Lovers Lottery” stuck out to me because it seemed to perfectly capture the main idea of the album. Love is a game of chance, and you have to play if you want to win!

  1. What is the story behind your latest single “Oughta Be?”

-My new single, “Oughta Be,” was actually the first song I ever had the opportunity to co-write in Nashville. I had met the other writer, Patrick Thomas, at an event in my hometown, and met up with him during my next trip to Music City. I was so nervous at first, but we ended up having very similar styles of writing, and when I brought up the idea “I’m not trying to tell you who or how or what you gotta be, but you oughta be with me” it just clicked! I think the song is so relatable, because everyone has that person that they hold so close to their heart.

  1. Is there something you wish your fans would take away from your new EP that comes out on April 27, 2018?

–  I hope my fans can relate to the stories of the songs on this new EP. I’ve always gravitated towards songwriting because of the emotional outlet it provides, and I think it’s such a special thing to share love, heartbreak, and everything in between.

  1. Was there any other artists or producers that worked on your new EP?

-Zachary Manno, who is also the lead guitarist on the tracks, produced the EP.

  1. Is there anything else new coming up with your music for the rest of 2018?

-Absolutely! I’ve spent the last couple of weeks creating some super fun video content that I can’t wait to share. Beyond that, I am always writing and co-writing new music, so don’t be surprised if you see more soon!

  1. Is there anything else you would like to share?

-I just want to thank everyone who has encouraged me to chase this dream, release this music, and especially to the fans that continue to buy, stream, and support it. And, of course, to publications like Dixiedee Blog who help artists share their hearts!

Campbell wrote or co-wrote and also co-produced every song on the Lovers Lottery.

Q&A:

  1. Hello Megan and Mary, can you tell me a little bit about yourselves before you guys started “Jammin in Jammies?”

Mary: I was born and raised in Kentucky and have only been living in Nashville around 6 months. Before I moved to town, along with performing, I hosted my own music variety TV/Radio show right outside of Louisville called, “Mary Kutter’s Country Music Hour” where I was able to interview and showcase some amazing hit writers and emerging artists.

Megan: I was born in Nashville! My dad was a writer who penned song for Ronnie Milsap, Barbara Mandrell, and more. My mom was always on the road or in the studio as well. I moved to Las Vegas around age 9 and lived there up until a year ago when I moved back to Nashville. As a teenager, I started performing live music (covers and originals) on the strip and coming back and forth to Nashville. Cutting my teeth as a performer in Las Vegas was quite an experience to say the least!

2. How did you come up with the name “Jammin in Jammies” and was there any other names you were going to choose instead?

Mary: Folks on my instagram kept asking for me to share some covers on my page, so I started posting a cover every week where I’d literally sit on my bed in my pajamas with my guitar and play a song. The videos got such a good response that when we got the opprtunity to host a show off Music Row, we knew it’d be neat to use that idea of pajamas in a live show concept.

Megan: I knew Mary’s video series on Instagram was a huge success. So when she called me with this idea on turning into a live show, my brain exploded with ideas and possibilities on what this live show could be. The sky was the limit!

3. How did you guys come up with this concept?

Mary: We basically took the idea of my weekly cover video series and made it a live show but with some of our favorite hit writers in town and emerging artist friends 🙂 We wanted to mix in music with light hearted fun, so we bring our Jammie Game every week and we also do a lot of funny parody videos to promote the event.

Megan: From the start, I saw Jammie’s color being purple. To me, that says FUN. We wanted it to be lighthearted so we have candy on all the tables, a signature drink, and we are always full of surprises. The show has taken off so quickly that we have to stay on our toes. We have some exciting ideas up our sleeves so you don’t ever wanna miss a show. 🙂

4. Where do you see “Jammin in Jammies,” in the next 5 to 10 years?

Mary: Who knows! To be honest, I am totally overwhelemed by the love and support the show has gotten — we’ve been doing it only a little over a month and every week, the venue is packed. My inbox is full with folks wanting to play the show, and I think Megan and I have stumbled onto a really cool thing. And the coolest thing is, Megan and I are best friends, so it’s like hanging out with your BFF while we work to make Jammin in Jammies the best show possible. In a couple years, I think Megan and I will both be touring as artists and have our music on the radio, and I feel like Jammin in Jammies will somehow fit into what we’ve got going then 🙂 Who knows! The sky is the limit!!

Megan: I agree with Mary. I think as artists we both have some exciting things coming up this year. So I definitely see us spending a lot of time on the road in the future but I just know somehow that Jammin In Jammies is in it for the long haul. From opening night just over a month ago, we knew this thing had legs.There’s enough hit songwriters in this town to keep up the show forever! The idea is very unique honestly. Hit songwriters with emerging artists in the pjs. What a fun concept.

5. Is there anything new coming up for “Jammin in Jammies,” for the rest of 2018?

Mary: SO MUCH. Can’t tell details yet. But believe me. It’s about to get even bigger and even cooler and even crazier. Hang on!!

Megan: We have so many HUGE surprises coming up yall. We’re not allowed to say exactly what is coming down the pipeline, but what we can say is MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!

6. Who are some of your guys’ musical icons?

Mary: My all-time favorite singer is Elvis, but I listen excessively to rap/hip hop, so Big Sean, Lil Wayne, and Macklemore are always on repeat. I think Walker Hayes is doing something revolutionary that Sam Hunt tapped into with the country music market and I’m such a fan of both of those guys.

Megan: My musical heroes are John Mayer & Keith Urban. I’ve always been a fan of great performers that can move people with just a great song and a guitar.

7. What are a few of your guys’ favorite quotes?

Mary: My mom has always told me that if you work hard, do the right thing, and are kind, things will turn out right. And my dad tells me CONSTANTLY it’s the little details that make the big differences in life.

Megan: “To reach a port we must sail, sometimes with the wind, and sometimes against it. But we must not drift or lie at anchor.”  – Oliver Wendell Holes, Sr.

8. Is there anything else you guys would like to share?

Mary: The show is every single Wednesday at 7 pm CST at South in Nashville. Pajamas are encouraged but not required. 🙂

Megan: What Mary said! Come check out Nashville’s biggest pajama party. And also come check out what Mary and I have going on individually as artists. 🙂 Meganbarker.com Marykutter.com
