Iowa-Native Hailey Whitters Has Signed a Management Deal!
Shueyville-native Hailey Whitters is making a real name for herself over in Nashville! The 29-year-old singer and songwriter has been getting the attention of the media and well-known country artists over the past several months, paving a path for herself without the help of a management team. Those days are over, though, because Hailey has officially signed a co-management deal with Matt Graham of BRND MGMT and Chris Kappy of Make Wake Artists! Matt currently manages the band Midland, while Chris works with Luke Combs. Hailey told Billboard:
"As an admirer of both Matt & Kappy's approach, I couldn’t have found a more complementary management partnership to execute my vision and deliver my music to fans. I’m thrilled to embark on this next chapter and see the places we'll go.”
The two managers/friends wanted to team up for a new project, and they were both interested in Hailey's work. They had some wonderful things to say about their new partnership with her, with Matt telling Billboard:
“Kappy and I plan to continue executing the rollout that Hailey has so brilliantly begun on her own. While we recognize the extreme importance of having a record label partner in country music, we have no intention of slowing her incredible momentum. We want to make sure whoever we choose as a label partner is the perfect fit."
We are looking forward to more new music from Hailey in the near future, but in the meantime, check out her latest release "Red Wine & Blue":
And don't forget! You'll be able to see Hailey open up for Maren Morris in Des Moines on September 16th. Get more details on tickets HERE.
