Rising country star Hailey Whitters releases “How Far Can It Go?” (feat. Trisha Yearwood) from Living The Dream, a deluxe edition of her critically-acclaimed breakthrough album The Dream that will be released on February 26th via Pigasus Records / Big Loud Records / Songs & Daughters. The deluxe album finds Whitters moving from fantasising about “the dream” to actually living it, calling upon her close friends and collaborators Brent Cobb, Jordan Davis, Hillary Lindsey, Little Big Town, Lori McKenna and Trisha Yearwood to contribute vocals to the fresh tracks.

“When I wrote this song with Nicolle Galyon and Hillary Lindsey, we were drawing inspiration from all of the ’90s female powerhouses I grew up listening to on Country radio,” explains Whitters. “This song reminds me of something I would’ve been singing along to on the radio, driving my old truck back in high school. We all know that young couple back in our hometowns with ‘forever in their eyes,’ and the feeling of wondering if they’ll be able to make it work when they go off to college. Those story songs in Country music were relatable to me then (and now), and I hope there’s a generation of Country music fans that still find them just as relatable today.”
“How Far Can It Go?” (feat. Trisha Yearwood) follows Whitters’ current single “Fillin’ My Cup” (feat. Little Big Town), which has racked up more than 4 million streams globally since its debut and was just named SiriusXM’s Highway Find.

Jordan Davis) from Living The Dream.
“All of the artists featured on this project are responsible for me being able to hang up the apron strings and make music full-time,” says Whitters about Living The Dream. “The royalties from Little Big Town’s cut on ‘Happy People’ helped pay for part of The Dream, Brent Cobb and Jordan Davis were two of the first artists to take me on tour, Lori McKenna and Hillary Lindsey are my two songwriting idols and favourite co-creators, and Trisha Yearwood is one of the first artists that got me excited about moving to Nashville and pursuing Country music. I wanted to show fans full circle what ‘living the dream’ looks like for me – from where I started with ‘Ten Year Town’ to the bucket list moments that have resulted since I released my record, The Dream. I felt it was important to show them what can happen when you don’t give up on yourself.”
Trisha Yearwood adds, “The first time I heard Hailey Whitters’ voice, I was in. I believe every word she sings. I was so happy she asked me to sing with her on ‘How Far Can It Go?’ Her energy is infectious. I had the best time!”
