Hailey Whitters has released her new Apple Music Sessions EP, which features a re-recording of her hit single, ‘Everything She Ain't’.
The special project also includes covers of Alan Jackson's ‘Gone Country’ and The SteelDrivers’ ‘Heaven Sent’.
Whitters is the latest in a string of big-name country artists to have been asked to release an Apple Music Sessions EP. In recent months, Kelsea Ballerini, Bailey Zimmerman, Carrie Underwood and more have all recorded projects for Apple Music's popular EP series.
As is tradition for an Apple Music Session, Hailey Whitters strips back the gloss and sheen of her studio releases, and introduces a captivating trio of acoustic songs.
‘Everything She Ain't’, which Whitters recently performed during her TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live, takes on a new sense of levity and unrestrained jubilation, as the Iowa native sings proudly about enjoying the little things in life (“She sees diamonds but I'm seeing stars / You should leave her on an island, dance with me in this bar”).
On Whitters’ Apple Music Sessions cover of Alan Jackson's backroad classic, ‘Gone Country’, her distinctive vocals float across a jaunty, uptempo banjo. Whitters transforms Jackson's escapist anthem into a fun, lively bluegrass track.
The last of the new releases is a cover of The SteelDrivers’ introspective hit, ‘Heaven Sent’. Hailey Whitters tugs on the heart-strings with her rendition of this moving, reflective ode penned by Chris Stapleton.
Fans will be hoping that Hailey Whitters’ new EP will be a precursor to a new album. It's coming up to a year since Whitters released her last project, Holler's Album of the Year, Raised.
