In support of her debut album, “Wildhorse,” The Billboard “2017 Country Artist to Watch” singer and songwriter Racheal Lynn Woodward, better known as RaeLynn, comes to The Loft’s stage on Friday, Sep. 22. This is all part of her Rave tour.
Produced by Warner Music Nashville, “Wildhorse” has made the top of Billboard’s country album charts; in large part due to her new single, “Lonely Call,” which has already hit over 6 million online streams. Inspired by her breakup with her husband, Woodward tells a relatable story — the post-breakup becomes especially hard after getting used to your spouse’s presence.
Woodward is also doing something unique this tour. As both a way to promote this new single and to help fans move on after breakups, an interactive dialog box is displayed on her official website. Fans can type their phone numbers to get a breakup advice talk from Woodward herself — though they have to choose from three pre-recorded messages. One piece of advice she gives her listeners is to avoid the phone, “Do not pick up that lonely call!"
But this tour is certainly not the only time that RaeLynn has gone out of her way to help fans. Apart from her musical success, RaeLynn has been involved in charity. She identifies as a Type 1 diabetic and started the RaeLynn Diabetes Foundation to offer empowerment to the diabetic community.
As a Texas native, Raelynn returned to Baytown, Texas, to help her family church, Celebration of Life, distribute supplies after Hurricane Harvey swept across her hometown. The church was one of the shelters that opened to refugees during the disaster.
