Pop-rock country singer-songwriter Hailey Newman, also known as Halo, is from a quaint mountain town in Eastern Kentucky just outside of Prestonsburg. She first realized her desire to become a singer-songwriter after giving a rousing performance of Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart” during her Middle School talent show in 2015. Shortly thereafter her first public performances came during an open mic showcase called Front Porch Pickin at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg. Always aspiring to be like other strong-willed women in music such as Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, Hailey is breaking ground with her own music now, having released five singles independently in 2020. She is now writing with veteran Nashville songwriters Doug Kahan and Holly Lamar, along with native Texan songwriter Drew Womack. 2021 will bring more new music with a series of new singles which continues to build upon her firm foundation of turning her own life’s stories into music that her fans can relate to, and draw strength from.
