Nashville Artist Bailey Jehl Talks Puppies, Music, & Her Upcoming Singles
I first met Bailey Jehl a couple years back at a last-minute group dinner with some friends at BurgerUP in Nashville.
I can’t remember how many minutes after being introduced to Bailey that I decided in my head, “Well, I should probably tell her that I love her voice and I own one of her EPs! That won’t be weird, right?” It wasn’t at all; I could tell that she genuinely appreciates her supporters.
Her voice possesses some sort of magical quality that you just need to hear for yourself. I remember the first time I heard one of Bailey’s songs; @HeyThereSam broke out her phone, connected my AUX cord to it and said, “Kyle, you’ve got to hear my friend Bailey sing!” Within 25 seconds of her song “Kerosene,” I pulled out my phone to Shazam that bad boy. Later that day, I bought her entire EP.
Since then, Bailey & I have become great friends! Some of my favorite memories, parties, or even lunches over the last couple of years include her. I can’t imagine Nashville without her!
Make sure you check her out on Spotify or go buy some of her music on iTunes. Also, stay tuned for new music getting released this year!
Interview with Nashville Artist Bailey Jehl
What is something you miss from TX that Nashville needs?
Definitely Tex Mex. Specifically Torchy’s Tacos. The Mexican food here is good but NOTHING compared to the Texmex in Dallas.
When was the first time you sang in front of a group of people?
I think the first time I REALLY sang in front of a big group was when I led worship for the first time my junior year of high school.
What YouTube cover song video are most proud of?
Definitely “Wildest Dreams”
From your original songs, which one reminds you that you are meant for a lifetime of music?
I’m proud of the music I’ve released this far. However, I feel like my unreleased stuff is my best. I’ll be releasing new music in the spring. I have 3 singles radio ready, and I’m super happy with how they came out. Excited to see what the reaction is 🙂
What happened the last time you cried because you were so happy?
I think it was when I made it through the executive audition for The Voice a little over a year ago.
What male singing voice can just make you melt? (Fingers Crossed for Meatloaf)
That’s hard! Whenever I hear Chris Martin’s of Coldplay, I automatically get chills. For some reason, I’ve always loved his voice so much. But I have to say the best male singer I’ve ever heard is Jordan Smith, winner of The Voice a couple seasons ago. SO talented.
What is your favorite thing to do outside on a beautiful day in Nashville?
Get Las Paletas & walk 12 South with friends.
What kind of dinosaur would you want to have as a pet?
Lol. TREX DUH
Fill in the Blanks: “All I need is just 2 ________ & 1 big _________!”
Puppies, Bowl of Queso (lol)
Which of your YouTube videos has the most views?
If you could sing from any stage in Nashville, which one would it be?
Bridgestone or Ryman Auditorium
What advice do you have for current Belmont University Students?
Stay focused on your dream. It’s so easy to get caught up with finding the absolute perfect major, so it’s easy to keep switching. Pray about what your ultimate goal is and then choose your major accordingly. I changed my major 3 times and wasted a lot of time doing so.
What’s the best place for Brunch in Nashville?
Some Real Life Insta Fun
“Kyle is KILLER and will make you look better than most people. He pays close attention to capturing your best angles and is super fun/easy to work with. The quality of his photography is also ON POINT.”
