Hayley Orrantia is quite the accomplished woman at this point in her life. I hadn’t heard the name before until looking at this song, but it turns out that Hayley has talents in a few areas.
She stars on the show The Goldbergs. I haven’t checked out the show, but I have heard good things. Hayley has also auditioned on The X Factor in the past as part of a country group. So the interest in country music has been there for awhile.
This song popped up on Spotify recently and I thought we could check it out.
Strong Sweet & Southern – Hayley Orrantia
This is just a fun song. It’s meant to just be something that you can kind of dance with and laugh with and just have some fun. Not every song has to be all serious or anything like that. Those are good sometimes, but we also need some fun songs in the mix as well.
And this is a good song to introduce a new artist to the country world with. Hayley definitely has some country in that voice. It looks like she’s from Texas and they really know country music down there in Texas. In fact, some of the most country, country music has been coming out of Texas recently.
I don’t know how this song will do on the charts. I don’t know if there is major label support or anything like that yet behind Hayley and the song, but it’s a good one. I could see it doing well on the charts, but you never know.
