CMT “Big In A Small Town” – I’m in!!!


Hi Everyone!!

I have some huge news that I’ve been waiting for the thumbs up from CMT to tell you all…and I finally got the official go-ahead!

I have made it into CMT’s national contest “Big In A Small Town!”

I went to Jasper in June to complete the second stage of the competition. I had an absolute blast with the cast and crew and I can’t wait for the first episode to air on August 23rd! Please gather your friends and family to watch it all unfold on CMT!

What a great bunch of talent rounded up for this competition. If I make the next round your support will be much needed and appreciated!! I will be doing some live chats soon about this, so please follow me on facebook and twitter for more updates as they happen.

Wish me luck!!

Some summer support from Cashbox Magazine!

Thanks so much to Cashbox! I loved being able to share my favourite summer song!

JACK & DIANE by JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP reminds me of my parents taking my brother and I camping in the mountains of B.C. in the summer. It was one of those tunes that my Dad played on the way to the campground and while we were camping. It still makes me want to have my windows rolled down and the music blaring while singing at the top of my lungs!

Hello country music world!

It feels like I’ve been gone for a while, but I’m so excited to be back again and feeling stronger than ever with a tremendous team…not behind me, but beside me.

I’m so happy to announce that I am now officially working with the very well respected Irene Carroll, “i see” Strategist/Public and Media Relations out of Toronto. She’s exactly what I need in my life right now, so I am very thankful to have her with me. I would also like to welcome Kit Watson with Rockitgirl Group, out of Vancouver and the whole team that comes with her. I am proud to say that Kit wrote a two page article that recently appeared in May 2012’s Canadian Musician Magazine, called “Where’s My Share – How Best To Spend Your Time & Money On Social Media”. Please check it out at Last, but certainly not least out of Nova Scotia, is the wonderful Lauren Tutty, from Lauren Tutty Promotions. Lauren will be tracking any new songs that go to radio. So, this is an official welcome to everyone on my team and a thank you for joining it!!

I’d like everyone to know that I have my first show coming up under my new team, and I’m thrilled to say I’m sharing the bill with the very talented rock sensation out of Vancouver, BC — or I should say, she’s sharing the bill with me… thank you Kieran Strange! We are playing the Carrot Cafe at 9351 118 Avenue, Edmonton, on Friday, June 15th. Doors open at 7:00PM. Anyone who is close enough, please join us!

Another really cool bit of information… I got accepted to showcase at the 2012 Diamonds in the Rough stage during the CCMA’s in Saskatoon. Thank you to Angie Morris with Sirroma Entertainment for giving me this opportunity! Performance details will be posted soon along with who I’m lucky enough to share the stage with.

One last thing, I am so thrilled to have a brand new website! I can keep everyone updated on everything so make sure you visit often. And please — do follow me on twitter @ erinhaleymusic!

Can’t wait to see everyone out there in music land again, and meet anyone I haven’t had the chance to meet yet!
