Haley Mae Campbell is well on her way to becoming one of Music Row’s shining new stars. She’s received local and regional radio airplay,and has over eight million collective streams on Spotify. Her single, “Anything but Yellow,” hit the ground running—the track debuted on Spotify’s ‘New Music Nashville’ playlist and quickly gained traction. After jumping up the ranks to ‘Breakout Country’ a week later, “Anything but Yellow” was added to Spotify’s most prestigious country playlist, ‘Hot Country,’ which has over 5.4 million followers. Her latest single “Ghost Stories” shows a new side of the singer’s voice. With almost 1,000,000 streams as well as features on New Boots and Wild Country, the track was a strong follow up to “Anything but Yellow”s success. The official music video for “Ghost Stories” debut on CMT Music, and quickly rose to the #1 spot on CMT’s 12-Pack Countdown
Her latest single “Never Been in Love” debuted in the #1 spot on the iTunes Country and All Genres Charts after going viral on TikTok with over 8M+ views.
New York-born and South Carolina-raised, Campbell’s music is a hybrid of city-slicker sass and small-town sensibilities, mixing rock-style vocals with a country-style twang. Since the release of her first album in 2015, Campbell has opened for country stars including Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay, David Nail, Lauren Alaina, Carly Pearce, Thompson Square and Tyler Farr as well as folk stars The Avett Brothers and performed alongside headliner Sheryl Crow at Charleston’s 9th Annual First Flush Festival.
The “Growing Up” EP showcases six of Campbell’s most formative releases. Track-listed in chronological order, and beginning with her summer hit “Anything but Yellow,” the EP shows the growth and progress Campbell has made in finding her sound. Ending with the title track, a return to more traditional-sounding country music, the entire project is rooted in classic storytelling that any listener can relate to.
Campbell turned heads at the 2018 Country Radio Seminar when iHeartRadio personality and tastemaker Bobby Bones called the pint-sized artist out during a panel and asked her to sing on the spot for an industry-only room of hundreds. Belting the “Star-Spangled Banner,” Campbell held her own, and Music Row was lit abuzz.
At once playful and determined, Campbell is ready to knock down doors as she continues her ascent to stardom; however, she insists she’ll never lose sight of why she chose to make music in the first place.
Says Campbell: “My music is a reflection of my life experience and it comes from the heart. With every song, the goal is to take the listener on a journey, paint them a picture and involve them in the story. I think that is truly what makes music special – when it can transport you to a different state of mind.”
