NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Bailey Callahan (Pink Mustang Music, LLC), who is swiftly ranking among the list of the hottest rising starlets in Nashville and the country music format today, is set to release her new original tune, “Sweet Tea,”* in early December. Co-written alongside J.C. Anderson and Justin Dukes, and produced by Shuffle Brother Music, the track will be available Friday, December 6, 2019 via all major digital retail and streaming outlets (Amazon/iTunes/Pandora/Rhapsody/Spotify).

Seemingly far and away from the songwriter’s All-American, girl-next-door signatured persona and writing style, the saucy tune serves up a fiery, cut-to-the-chase attitude that bites like a shot of whiskey yet is as delightfully refreshing as an icy glass of sweet tea that drink’s up easy.


The overall sentiment of this track is the beginning of new era for me as a songwriter and recording artist; it’s a little sassier, more mature and offers a sneak peek of the new music to come,” said 19-year-old Bailey Callahan. “‘Sweet Tea’ represents a female empowerment—a freedom and fearlessness to be yourself. You can be a Friday night rebel or a Sunday morning sweetheart. The instrumentation has a bit of a Jay Joyce (Eric Church/Tenille Townes) vibe.”

Don’t be a fool

About my innocent smile

Behind these eyes

Is a-little wild child

You could take your aim

Yeah you could test your luck

Go on and play your game

So, I could call you’re bluff


Don’t take me home to mom

Till you know what you got

You might be thinking I’m perfect

Oh but baby I’m not

Since making Music City her home as a high school graduate just 14 short months ago, the young, industrious and tenacious Floridian has become a permanent fixture in the Nashville music and songwriting community. Taking the spotlight on stages across the country this summer, Bailey Callahan (who plays more than 150 dates each year) is poised to become a trendsetter in the country music sector. The December 2019 single release continues the momentum spawned by the release of her sophomore original tune, “Home Made”—described as “a bouncy message…complemented by…a country-girl delivery as a perfect match” (Robert K. Oermann/MusicRow Magazine)—released in July 2019.


The “Sweet Tea” pre-sale and pre-save event begins Friday, November 8, 2019; digital retail distribution and streaming services spearheaded by Ed Gertler, Digital Delivery Services.


Bailey Callahan is a gal who lights up a room; her aura illuminates before she even enters. The singer/songwriter and recording artist lives in the moment but most definitely has a plan for the future. In less than a 10-month period, at just 17, Bailey made the move from the Sunshine State to Music City immediately following her graduation from high school; was invited to participate in, and attended, the annual ASCAP Expo in Hollywood; was selected to become the host of the SCENES Media podcast, and made the grade to become a 2018 NASH Next finalist.

Now nineteen, Bailey navigates her business within the music industry with moxie and grace. The sought-after songwriter has celebrated a “hold” by Kelsea Ballerini; her self-titled EP charted at No. 43 on iTunes (2017). She is endorsed by Taylor Guitars and books her own shows—playing more than 300 dates over the course of three short years.  Bailey has shared the stage with some of country music’s hottest names including Luke Combs, Hunter Hayes, LOCASH, Scotty McCreery, Jesse James Decker and a multitude of others. Her 2019 summer tour encompassed performances at Country Stampede (Kansas) and “Thunder On The Ridge.” Bailey has made special guest appearances on “TODAY in Nashville” (WSMV-TV/Nashville) and “Nashville Today” (WSM-AM/Nashville). Recognized as the 2019 Southwest® “Artist On The Rise,” Bailey was awarded a showcase performance at “Live In The Vineyard” in Napa Valley, CA where she joined Kelsea Ballerini, Adam Lambert, Nathasha Bedingfield, Delta Rae, Walk Off The EarthKing Calaway, for KING & COUNTRY, Kevin Griffin (Better Than Ezra), Ryan Griffin, A Thousand Horses, Brett Kissel, OBB, Wyn Starks, Stephanie Quayle and many others.

Bailey is currently writing and recording a series of tracks slated to be released as part of a singles release campaign beginning in early 2020.
