RaeLynn has already released two records in her young career with two different record labels, but now she's on yet another new label and she couldn't be happier. The 25-year-old recently signed on with Round Here Records, which is owned and operated by Florida Georgia Line.
She opened up to PEOPLE about what she loves most about the label.
"There’s something to partnering with a label run by artists because they know what it’s like to be unique and to tell your story in a unique way and having to fight for that," she told the outlet.
"You shouldn’t have to fight for it — you should just be able to put that music out. It’s important to me to write what makes me happy, because I know it’s going to make my fans happy. My fans are all kinds of kinds; they’re not just your average country music fan."
"They’re just like me, and I’m not just a country music listener — I listen to everything," she continued. "We’re all a melting pot, and I’ve realized on the road that’s what my fan base is. Anytime you do something a little different, I think that’s when the best songs come. It’s when you follow your heart."
RaeLynn went on to make a bold comparison, saying that she thinks of herself kind of like Dolly Parton.
"It’s so funny, because if somebody said, 'What does your music sound like?' I would say it’s like Dolly Parton with some 808 beats," she said. "If Dolly was a new artist now, growing up the way I grew up, I honestly think she would kind of be doing this. She’s edgy, as well."
RaeLynn recently went on tour with another young country star, Maren Morris. She talked about how much she loved the fans.
"Oh my God, that was so much fun. My music’s a little more redneck-y country than hers. But there’s one thing I love about her fan base: Everybody that comes to see her show knows that she’s different," She said.
"She’s breaking the mold. So it ended up being such a great fit. That tour was one of the most incredible tours for me, just to have that female energy on the road, but to also meet all those different fans in all those different cities. We did three weeks in Europe, and we did 12 shows in 14 days. Maren’s such a blast."
