Nashville, Tenn. (April 21, 2017) – Poised and ready to take country music by storm, the bold and talented Big Loud Records newcomer JILLIAN JACQUELINE steps out of the shadows to premiere an epic anthem of self-determination, “Reasons.”
Available today (4/21) across all sales and streaming platforms, “Reasons” is the first taste of Jacqueline’s striking debut album, an authentic collection of true stories built on unwavering honesty and stunning musical vision.
At times intimate, at times ferocious, and always full of razor-sharp soul-searching, “Reasons” reveals a promising singer-songwriter who’s unafraid to say what others will not – even when it comes to the well-traveled territory of a breakup.
“Writing ‘Reasons’ broke me open in a very vulnerable way at a time when I couldn’t expose the pain I was feeling in my relationship,” shares Jacqueline. “I’m so thankful that my co-writer Sarah Buxton and producer Tofer Brown let me say all the things I’d been afraid to because this song is a testament to being honest with yourself.”

Critics are already praising Jacqueline’s unique, forward-looking sound, and fans can now get an inside look with the color-rich video for “Reasons.” Making its world premiere on CMT, CMT Music and CMT.com, the vibey clip was shot in Nashville, TN, at local favorite Urban Cowboy. A proven tastemaker in country music, CMT is one of Jacqueline’s strongest early supporters, naming her to the coveted Next Women of Country list and also including her on the “17 for 2017” rundown of new artists to watch in the coming year.
Invited to co-write with some of the biggest names in Music City – including Craig Wiseman, Shane McAnally, Natalie Hemby, Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, Lori McKenna and more – she’s been dubbed a “dazzling chanteuse-wordsmith” by Rolling Stone. And after thrilling a huge audience at her official launch party at Nashville’s historic Belcourt Theatre in March, Jacqueline has just finished up a month of tour dates with country hitmaker Billy Currington.
Meanwhile, previous singles like 2014’s tender “Overdue” (featuring Vince Gill) has been streamed over 2.5 million times on Spotify, while “Prime,” her young-at-heart lifestyle manifesto, has gathered over 1 million streams since its release in 2016.
