Rising country star Hailey Whitters releases a new single “Fillin’ My Cup” (feat. Little Big Town).
The song was written by Whitters, Songs & Daughters’ label head Nicolle Galyon, and Hillary Lindsey, and was co-produced by Whitters and Jake Gear – who produced her critically-acclaimed THE DREAM released last year via Pigasus Records / Big Loud Records / Songs & Daughters. The director’s cut of the official video also just dropped featuring Whitters, Little Big Town, and Old Crow Medicine Show’s Ketch Secor. Filmed under the direction of Harper Smith, it was shot outside Nashville, TN.
Whitters’ THE DREAM firmly established the Iowa-born artist as “Nashville’s Next Big Star.” By the end of 2020, it was hailed as one of the top albums of the year, reigning #1 on both Stereogum’s “10 Best Country Albums of 2020” and Garden & Gun’s “Best Southern Albums of 2020” lists. THE DREAM was named among the best albums of the year by The Washington Post, Paste Magazine, The Tennessean, and landed at #6 on Rolling Stone’s “30 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2020” list, who proclaimed, “The Dream is the type of record that could propel an artist as talented as Whitters in a million different directions.” Rolling Stone and American Songwriter also named her single “Janice at the Hotel Bar” one of the best songs of 2020.
