Bailey Callahan is a gal who lights up a room; her aura illuminates before she even enters. A singer/songwriter and recording artist who reigns from sunny Florida, Bailey is a vibrant young woman who lives in the moment but most definitely has a plan for the future. She’s overcome lifetime challenges and racked up some grand career accomplishments. In less than a 10-month period, at just 17, Bailey endured a complicated back surgery to correct childhood scoliosis (two rods were inserted into her spine), she graduated from high school, made the move from the Sunshine State to Music City, was invited to participate in, and attend, the annual ASCAP Expo in Hollywood and chosen to become the host of the SCENES Media podcast. Bailey Callahan thrives in a whirlwind!
While Bailey is most certainly characterized by her fun-loving, carefree personality, what lies beneath her effervescence is a tenacity and determination that makes her a force to be reckoned with. The now eighteen-year old navigates her business within the music industry with moxie and grace. Bailey books her own shows and has played more than 300 dates over the course of two short years sharing stages with some of country music’s hottest names including Luke Combs, Hunter Hayes, LOCASH, Scotty McCreery, Jesse James Decker and a multitude more.
Her self-titled EP, which charted at No. 43 on iTunes (2017), flawlessly ties together the origin of the “Bailey Callahan Diary” past and present, and with a hopeful future. She expertly balances young-hearted romanticism with maturity to offer an irrevocably relatable quality that “CallaFans,” and country music fans alike, can latch onto. Outtakes such as “Another Ex” (a tune Kelsea Ballerini considered cutting) offers listeners an intensely personal look into unrequited love while “Wildcard” reveals the uncharted territory that comes with new-found romance.
Bailey’s bubbly outlook and vivacious spirit should not be mistaken for unsophistication. Bailey Callahan is a savvy, no-nonsense, get down to brass tacks kind of gal. At the end of the day, it’s her proven sensibility combined with her undeniable talents that put Callahan on the path to grandeur.
