“My car battery died, I had to get it jumped, go to AutoZone, had to buy a new battery. I had $173 in my bank account and that car battery cost me 162 bucks. The next day ‘Villain’ went viral and I don’t deliver groceries anymore,” shares Rose. “I’ve always prided myself on authenticity and hard work.”
Recently named “a promising new talent” by Billboard, Rose’s debut single “Villain” impacted Country Radio on March 8 and has notched 35M global streams and over 26M artist US on demand streams since its Dec. release. Her “downright infectious” (American Songwriter) single continues to gain fast momentum and break new ground at Country radio with 24 first week adds.
Since signing her record deal earlier this year, Lily has been hard at work selling out shows in her hometown of Atlanta, GA, and premiered acoustic performances of fan favorites “Better Than That” and “Green Light” exclusively with People and YouTube Rodeo, respectively. In March, Lily was featured on Apple Music Radio’s Country Risers Radio with Ward Guenther as their Country Riser of the week.
