Houston native Haley Georgia began her country music career track at a young age, singing in talent competitions and open mikes since the age of 11.
She continued to develop her voice, writing songs and building Nashville connections during her teenage years before promptly relocating to Music City just after high school. After a short stint on American Idol's 12th season, Georgia caught the attention of publisher Arturo Buenahora, Jr. and began working with his publishing company, Little Louder Music. A record deal with Universal led to the 2015 release of Pretty Girls Mixtape, a four-song EP that included the single "Ridiculous," introducing audiences to Georgia's sassy mix of country, pop, and hip-hop beats. Opening dates for major acts like Colt Ford, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, and Chase Rice followed as she prepared her debut album for release in early 2017. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
