HunterGirl releases her first new music since wrapping the show with the deeply personal track “Hometown Out Of Me” via 19 Recordings/BBR Music Group.

“My hometown has supported my dream since I was little and especially through this crazy year of my life,” share HunterGirl. “I wanted my first single following the show to be a thank you card to my hometown. The reason I get to chase my dream is because of the amazing people who have supported me. No matter where this journey takes me, I will never forget where I came from.”

Writing the song once she returned to Nashville from filming American Idol in Los Angeles, the idea came to her when she was in line at the grocery store in her hometown of Winchester, Tennessee with her mom, and noticed people in town had bought ads in their local paper to cheer her on during her Idol journey. Showing her appreciation to where she grew up and saying thank you to her community the only way she knows how, she wrote “Hometown Out Of Me” with Laura Veltz and producer Jimmy Robbins.

HunterGirl heads out on tour with Noah Thompson

Currently playing dates out on the road, most recently with Justin Moore and Tracey Lawrence, HunterGirl will also kick-off her co-headlining tour with this year’s American Idol winner Noah Thompson on Thursday, October 27 in Columbus, Ohio.

Over the summer, HunterGirl was introduced to country music fans at the CMA Music Fest, where she sang duets with label-mates Jimmie Allen and season 19 winner Chayce Beckham.

A Tennessee native, singer/songwriter HunterGirl has been performing since she was three years old and writing songs since she was 9. In her early teens, she performed at venues across the United States, competed in singing competitions and won the 2014 Texaco Country Showdown.

After graduating high school, she moved to Nashville and immediately started playing gigs at Nashville’s most famous venues including Tootsie’s, Rippy’s, Jason Aldean’s Bar, The Listening Room, and Honky Tonk Central, winning songwriting contests such as “Nash Next” and the prestigious “Nashville Songwriter Association International” in her spare time.

Having family members in the military, HunterGirl is inspired to work with veteran organizations where she uses music therapy to transform veterans’ stories into songs.

Hunter performed her heartfelt original American Idol winner’s song, “Red Bird” on Live with Kelly & Ryan and has appeared on Good Morning America.
