ALBUM REVIEWHailey Whitters - Living The Dream (Deluxe Edition)

By Jof Owen

The Dream was an almost perfect slice of traditionalist country when it came out a year ago, so all that the five new songs on Living The Dream can do is drag out the dessert course a little bit longer - but it’s one worth more than worth sticking around for. This deluxe edition is more than just a cherry on top.
