You may remember RaeLynn as the feisty Team Blake Shelton teen from The Voice Season 2. Her giant flower hair bows combined with her child beauty pageant costumes were pretty unforgettable. And now the country crooner is ready to start promoting her original music.
She already performed her first single, “Boyfriend,” on The Voice Season 3 in the winter, and this summer the singer is going on the road with her coach’s wife Miranda Lambert, country superstar Dierks Bentley, and Kix Brooks.
RaeLynn has always been close to Blake and Miranda and has performed on stage with Miranda and her group the Pistol Annies several times. She’s even earned the nickname of the “Little Annie.”
It’s nice to see that Blake and his family have continued to nurture this artist long after she’s left The Voice. The most interesting thing about RaeLynn’s connection to Blake and Miranda is the fact that she didn’t even make it to the semi-finals on The Voice.
The Texas teen left the competition early in Season 2 and Jermaine Paul went on to represent Blake in the finals, landing the singer his first win.
Will you go see RaeLynn on tour with Miranda, Dierks, and Kix? Tell us below!

Pistol Annies have abruptly canceled all of their concerts that were scheduled for June, leaving Miranda Lambert to fill in as a solo act at the upcoming shows.
The trio released their second album, ‘Annie Up,’ in May and were expected to tour in support of it, mingling the dates between Lambert’s solo appearances and Ashley Monroe’s promotional efforts for her recent solo album ‘Like a Rose.’ Lambert performed solo at the Winstock Festival on June 7, where the group were scheduled, and will perform solo at the Country Stampede on June 30.
According to Keepin’ It Country, the only explanation provided to the promoter of the Winstock Festival was an email that read, “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Pistol Annies are unable to appear on any dates in June but Miranda Lambert will perform instead.”
The trio were expected to perform at last week’s CMT Awards, but did not. Lambert and Monroe both attended the awards show, and both appeared separately at events during the CMA Music Festival. Angaleena Presley was not photographed at either the CMT Awards or during CMA Music Festival. According to a tweet from Sirius XM’s The Highway, Monroe has confirmed that the trio are still friends and will continue to make music together.
The trio’s website offers no further information. The Events section simply reads, “There are no events at this time.”
