After the dust settled and votes were tallied, Farewell Angelina was announced this week as the winner of Taste of Country’s RISERS Hot Seat poll. Organizers revealed the band, named by Rolling Stone as one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” won the coveted slot by over 20,000 votes.
Taste of Country News host Ania Hammar revealed the exciting news with the band via a massive Facebook Live event.
The Dreamlined Entertainment group’s “If It Ain’t With You” single continues to hit radio playlists across the country.
Farewell Angelina is an all-female country group. Nicole Witt and Andrea Young teamed up with noted Nashville harmony singer and solo artist Lisa Torres in late 2014. Their clear writing chemistry, creative drive and incendiary performance soon caught the ears and eyes of producers Jen Ketner and Keith Stegall, and recording commenced in 2015.
This year celebrated the release of their debut EP on Stegall’s Dreamlined Entertainment and appearances at the ACM All-Star Jam, CMA Music Fest, a 75-city radio tour and festival dates at Creek Fest and Trails West. In late summer 2016 they added ACM and Tony Award nominee Lauren Lucas, adding yet another lead vocalist and stellar guitarist to the mix.
