24-year-old Muscle Shoals native Rachel Wammack is a “dynamic new Country voice for the genre” (Rolling Stone) with her “deep-rooted, classic sound” (Wide Open Country) influenced heavily by the rich musical history of her hometown. Throughout her adolescent years, Wammack expressed her art through her songwriting and storytelling; later playing in the high school band, and pursuing a college degree in professional writing. At the age of 17, she was discovered by a Sony Music Nashville executive while performing at a fine cuisine piano restaurant in Muscle Shoals. Five years and many written songs later, Wammack received a record deal from Sony Music Nashville. In April 2018, she released her self-titled debut, giving her growing fan base a taste of the music that’s on the horizon. Named one of Rolling Stone ’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” and selected for Bobby Bones’ “Women of iHeartCountry,” her wildfire momentum continues this fall as she embarks on a series of radio shows across the U.S. Additionally, she will join Brett Young on his CMT ON TOUR: HERE TONIGHT, launching Nov. 16 in Royal Oak, MI.
