Hailey Whitters, one of CMT’s newest Next Women of Country, returned to her native Iowa to film her latest video, “Heartland.” The video was directed by fashion and music photographer Harper Smith, who is also originally from Iowa.
The Nashville-based singer-songwriter says, “Despite being nine hours away, I still have a strong connection to the Heartland where I was born and raised. You can hear it throughout my music and I wanted to bring listeners home with me to see and experience it firsthand.”
After wrapping up tours with Maren Morris, Brent Cobb and Lori McKenna this year, Whitters will support Jordan Davis on his Trouble Town Tour in 2020 and will perform at Stagecoach 2020. A new album, The Dream, is set for next year as well.
As a writer for Carnival Music, she has written songs recorded by Little Big Town (“Happy People”), Alan Jackson (“The Older I Get”), and Martina McBride (“Low All Afternoon” & “The Real Thing”).
