This week, Hannah Bethelmade her official mark in the country music family, becoming one of the newest members of the Country Music Association(CMA).

Hannah is pleased to join many of her country music peers as well as industry professionals who support CMA. “I’m so happy to be a part of this musical family,” says Hannah. “There are so many great artists, songwriters and musicians that are a part of this community and I already feel welcomed into this community!”

Hannah brings a taste of the organic style with her eccentric approach to country music. She mixes the sounds of her influences, which include Fleetwood Mac, Miranda Lambert, and Willie Nelson while throwing in a twist all her own.

Hailing from the backwoods of Michigan, she knew music was her calling at a very young age after making her debut solo performance at her fourth grade Christmas recital. She got her first taste of the spotlight in 2011 when she became a contestant on the hit reality FOX show “X Factor USA,” and her fan base exploded.

Since then, she has teamed up with manager Rikk Feulner at RSF Management and her newest project titled The Freedom EP includes five songs written/co-written by Hannah, including earning the co-producing slot on the album. Her current single No Where Left to Roam, is quickly gaining popularity at country, Americana, and college radio and her music video is being played on CMT.com, GACTV.com and TCN. Her hard work as a songwriter is paying off after securing four songs on the debut album of Momentum Label Group’s Rachele Lynae, including her current single Fishin’ For Something.
