Originally from Arlington TX, country music singer Nicholle Rae only just moved to Nashville to June, but with songs like “Fireball” and “What Do You Want From Me” it’s clear that she is putting her own splash of fire around town, with her new songs, YouTube presence, and Downtown Broadway gigs.
Moving to Nashville and away from her family and native Texas has been a big step both personally and professionally. Nicholle admits that since moving to Nashville, her music has matured and says“I feel like I’m growing up.”
At just 22, she has been gigging for most of her life, from her early school days to her pageant years.
“Growing up I went to a Catholic school. I was always in the choir.” Choir and her Texas roots led her to a starting career in pageantry. “I did pageants for a while. I always got to sing country…I only mainly did it to have venues to sing at.” And sing she did, taking home Miss Teen Texas Overall Female Vocalist in 2008 at just 15 years old.
Now, at 22, it’s clear Nicholle is ready to perform on a whole new level. Nicholle says of her saucy new song “Fireball,” “It’s like my baby, like I LOVE that song.” And it’s no wonder, with its great lyrics and come hither vibe, “Fireball” has the all the makings of a Honky Tonky hit.
No stranger to throwing back her favorite whiskey, Nicholle balances her party side with beautiful
ballads (“Lead Me On”) and her volunteer work. “I’m really passionate about volunteering.” Back in
Texas, Nicholle Rae assisted at a school where she worked with children with Down syndrome, and says that if she wasn’t a country music artist she would most likely be a Social Education Teacher.
For now though, Nicholle is focusing solely on her music. Singing at Tootsies and Honky Tonky Central, Rae has been cutting her teeth with the best of them, performing in front of Broadway audiences and working on her songwriting. Back in Texas, Rae was crafting songs with Tim Angston, collaborating with him on her own songs, and lending her vocals to “Just Getting By” and “Please Forgive Me” among others.
Now in Nashville and on her own, Nicholle is working on new music, and coming into her own. Rae looks up to artists like Christiana Aguilera, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, and Kacey Musgraves, women who can pack a punch with both their voices and lyrics, so it’s no wonder Rae’s own music is all at once powerful and sweet.
Nicholle has been winning hearts here in Nashville and back home in Texas and is a featured artist of
Today’s Texas Country.
Whether your taste is party songs, or love songs, with her huge voice and sweet personality, Nicholle
Rae has something for you.
