Eighteen-year-old Georgia Native Rachel Farley is everything real music should be about. She is strong, fearless, and exploding with talent. At the age of 13 she played over a hundred shows, which led to her meeting a local act at that time, Brantley Gilbert. At just 13 years old, Farley started opening for Gilbert who describes her voice as “non-negotiably insane, powerful and God-given.”
Farley has also opened up for label mate Jason Aldean who she spent some time touring with last year. Her songwriting expands way beyond her years and she is dynamite on stage. Rachel Farley just released a single to country radio titled “Ain’t Easy” and it’s sure to blow you away.
