Interview with Alabama’s Rising Star Bailey Coats

Here is our exclusive interview with Bailey Coats

What is your inspiration to write your music?
Music is the universal language of the world. It tells the stories of our lives. I find inspiration from not only my personal experiences, but from observing the experiences of others as well.
2. What type of music did you listen to growing up?

I listened to a wide range of music, but somehow I always ended up finding myself ¬†listening to pop music. The hooky lines and hypnotic rhythms made me feel alive. Hence, why I decided to pursue a career in pop music ūüôā

  1. Is there someone you looked up as a hero?

Absolutely – my mom and dad. That might not be the typical musical response, but here’s why. They represent the epitome of perseverance and confidence. They set a precedence for my sister and I to never give up on our goals, to never settle for mediocrity, and to continually push ourselves to grow from our experiences and lessons. Because of them, I have a solid foundation for the principles that I choose to base not only my life off of, but also my career.

  1. If you weren’t a musician, would you be doing today?

Truthfully, I can’t even fathom what I would be doing if I wasn’t an artist. I struggle to communicate with people and music is my voice; it is the universal language that allows me to fully express myself and connect with people everywhere. I cannot imagine a life where I was not an artist.

  1. What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create


Be bold! Be yourself! And speak up for your craft! Looking back on some of my early development years, I so wish I had had the confidence to speak my mind. However, those lessons have allowed me to be able to share this advice with other artists. Trust your gut, trust yourself, and trust your purpose.
