Haley Mae Campbell is well on her way to becoming one of Music Row’s shining new stars. In addition to making her CMA Fest debut in 2018, the music video for her single “Oughta Be” premiered on CMT.com in mid-September, and held its own as one of the most-viewed videos on the platform for over a month. She’s received local and regional radio airplay, and has over one million collective streams on Spotify. Her latest single, “Asking for a Friend,” is an upbeat, energetic song about a classic loophole phrase. Written by Campbell alongside Jerry Jacobs, “Asking for a Friend” is the first single to follow Campbell’s previous EP, Lovers Lottery, released in April of last year. The acute premise of the song is conveyed through clever details in its playful lyrics, which brings listeners along for the ride in this youthful, carefree anthem. The music video premiered exclusively on CMT.com in mid-April. New York-born and South Carolina-raised, Campbell’s music is a hybrid of city-slicker sass and small-town sensibilities, mixing rock-style vocals with a country-style twang. Since the release of her first album in 2015, Campbell has opened for country stars including Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay, David Nail, Lauren Alaina, Carly Pearce, Thompson Square, and Tyler Farr, as well as folk stars The Avett Brothers and performed alongside headliner Sheryl Crow at Charleston’s 9th Annual First Flush Festival.
