Drawing inspiration from all corners of country music, ranging from royalty like Dolly Parton and The Dixie Chicks, to younger trailblazers such as Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, and Brothers Osborne, Virginia-born singer-songwriter Lexie Hayden has always sought to tap one particular attribute that these influences embody to her: honesty.
Between both Apple Music and Spotify, Hayden's music has garnered over three million total streams. Her songs have been showcased on various playlists, including "New Music Nashville," "New Music Friday Country," "Fresh Finds," "New Boots," "Country Risers" "New in Country" and "CMT Next Women of Country."
As an independent artist, Hayden has had six songs (and counting) featured on national radio. Amy Brown from the Bobby Bones Show selected singles "Sad Songs," "Somewhere Drinking," "Pretty Damn Close," "Tequila For Two," "Take Me Home," and "Might Be You" for their Women of iHeartCountry segment that aired on all 150+ iHeartCountry stations across the US. Hayden was also named the National Spotlight Artist of the Week twice by Bobby Bones and was featured on the Top 30 Countdown.
Besides being an artist, Hayden prides herself on being a songwriter as well. She co-wrote Priscilla Block's single, "My Bar," that went to country radio and broke top 25. Hayden's songs have been featured on The Kelly Clarkson Show, The Tamron Hall Show, The CMT Awards, The Yara Shahidi Show, ESPN and The News Movement.
Hayden was featured on the first ever season of "Becoming A Popstar," a brand new show put on by MTV, TikTok and Pepsi. The show hand selected eight rising artists from TikTok to write songs, record them and produce music videos. The series premiered on MTV, featuring celebrity judges Joe Jonas, Becky G and Sean Bankhead. Following the show, Hayden was selected to be a part of the Pepsi Music Lab; a program put on by Pepsi and United Masters designed to "shine a spotlight on the next generation of superstars."
