Biography

Bailey Easterwood - The 19 year-old singer/songwriter from Cullman, Alabama. Bailey is a chicken farmer by day and performer by night. Having grown up in a southern farming family Bailey was introduced to southern rock bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molley Hatchet, and The Allman Brothers at an early age. When asked about his childhood Bailey said, "I cut my teeth on all the old classic rock tunes. I mean, I could sing 'Sweet Home Alabama' before I could say my name."
Bailey delivers a deep message with catchy and upbeat hooks. He draws his style from such artists as Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, and tobyMac, along with his southern rock influnces. With a mission to serve the Lord God Almighty as well as embrace the joys of love and life, Bailey has set out to play the local coffee shop scene of North Alabama, but plans to move out in the future. Having hit such hot spots as the Moxie Java and Berklee Bob's Whole Earth Store, Bailey is well on his way to a bright future. He has one CD available "It's All Bueno" and a new one set to release in July. His first CD contains songs of life and a new found love. "When I started 'Bueno', I had never been in love. I always wrote about things we go through in life. We always seem to want more from it, but in the end I discovered love fills almost every void imaginable. Hopefully, I can make enough bread with this music career to marry my love while still promoting the bliss that I want every listener to feel."
Bailey's shows are always exciting. Wheter it's a full band performance or a solo acoustic act, Bailey always brings the fun. When asked which he prefers, solo or with a band, Bailey said this, "Both have great qualities. I love the energy of a band show. I love getting the audience fired up and excited, because I've been in there seat before. The key word here is entertainment. However, I do love the intimacy of an acoustic show. Playing covers and original songs in a coffee house is always a good time. You can reach out more to individuals in that enviroment."
Bailey is more than ready to pursue and to reach out to those looking for a positive influence. "It beats picking up eggs all day," he says with a grin. Stay tuned for more updates on Bailey and the band at www.baileyemusic.com.

Politically Incorrect

Verse1.
Same old story, as it goes. Everybody plays, but not everybody knows, the real truth behind the meaning, and the real song behind the singing.

Pre-chorus1.

So enjoy your lives and keep working at your nine to fives. Nice income and security, well I’m sorry that ain’t right for me…

Chorus.
So get off of my back, leave me alone. I’ll do what I want, even if it’s wrong. So get off of my back and just let me be. I don’t bother you so don’t mess with me.

Verse2.
You ever felt like your on your own. Nobody wants to hear you play your song. I bet you even had your plan, well, do what you want and do what you can.

Pre-chorus2.
When we’re six we’ve all got our dreams of being the hero we see on TV. Then there are those who just don’t understand that life is still sweet if you work with your hands.

Chorus.

True Love

Written By: Bailey Easterwood

True Love

Verse.
I wish I could understand this world in a shorter glance and the way the heart seems to work. It’s more than a mystery, more than anything I’ve ever dreamed, so don’t pick the flower before it blooms. Can you feel the trauma and the things between. We got emotions tearing up that can’t be seen, and people getting up to get on down, not thinking about life and the love that surrounds.

Chorus.
Hold on to love baby, keep strong what you got. Don’t sell your soul short, till love is right. Hold on to love baby, keep strong what you got. Don’t sell your soul, oh no no.

Verse2.
Isn’t it amazing how we all start off so small. Yeah, riding bikes and climbing trees, not worrying about the birds or there friends the bees. Well I’ve tried wishing on a star, but that luck it never got me far. So I’ll keep my smiling face and ever persistent faith. I hate the way love’s portrayed today, it’s only sexual themes and animal ways when I know I’ve felt something more. Oh, so much more.

Chorus

Bridge.
It’s true love, but you gotta wait on it. Wait on ture love. (Repeat)

Chorus.

Bridge2.
Love set us free, but you gotta wait on it. Wait on true love. (Repeat)

POSTMAN

Verse1.
I love it when you whisper your heart in my ear. It’s like your tongue does a waltz of sweet things for me to hear. And when we’re far apart I wish the mailman would bring your sweet love back to me. But…

Chorus.
The postman don’t run on Sunday morning, so let’s thank the Lord for all the love. And just listen to the rain on the tin roof singing that sweet melody. Fa la la sweet love for you and me. For you and me.

Verse2.
It’s the little things in life that are always the best; like lemonade, fishing, and your little flower dress. So keep these loves close to your heart and your friends and your family never too far apart.

Chorus.

Bridge.
Well memories are so sweet to believe, but there’s just too much drama for me. Well memories are so sweet to believe, but there’s just too much drama for me. Said there’s just too much drama for me.

Soldier’s Prayer

Verse1.
Can you see the sunrise? And when you look down do you cry? Because we’re all so small, but in each of our minds we’re ten feet tall.

Chorus1.
I wish that you could see the world from above and just sit and wonder how does God share all of this love.

Verse2.
Is the sun still bright where you are? Is it your warmth is it your star? Don’t you worry at all, because we’ll be just fine where we are.

Chorus2.
I wish that you could see the world from above and just sit and wonder how does God share all of this love. Because love will always find its way into our hearts and love it won’t back down if it’s real. If it’s real.

Verse3.
Love please guide my way. It’s what I ask, it’s a soldier’s pray.

Chorus2.
