Writer Sarah Rodman opines about Rainey's father teaching her how to play guitar, opening for Willie Nelson, writing for her album and more. The piece also includes a link to Rainey's sassy new music video for her "Me And Johnny Cash" single.
Rainey spent this week out west touring and visiting radio stations. Last night, she performed at the sold-out 93.7 Kiss Country $5 Summer Concert Series at the Rotary Amphitheater in Fresno, CA. Pictured following her performance in the photo below are: (l. to r.) KSKS morning show co-host Gnarly Charley, Rainey Qualley, KSKS PD Darrin Arriens, Star Farm Nashville's Chris Borchetta.
Rainey's debut EP, Turn Down The Lights, was released last month. The Asheville, NC native co-wrote all seven songs on the collection, which was produced by Russ Zavitson and John Ramey. Her debut single, "Me And Johnny Cash," is receiving significant airplay at country radio.
