Bailey Zimmerman Releases Debut EP ‘Leave The Light On,’ Featuring Hit Tracks “Fall In Love” & “Rock And A Hard Place”

Rising country singer Bailey Zimmerman’s debut EP, Leave The Light On, is out now! Listen to the new EP here.

“Fall In Love,” the nine-track project’s lead single, has had wild success, securing a spot in the Top 10 at country radio, making it the fastest debut song to hit the Top 10 in five years. With almost 300 million streams worldwide to date, the track is the 9th most-streamed country song this year. It currently sits in Billboard’s Hot Country Songs’ Top 10 chart and in the Top 30 on the all-genre Hot 100 chart.

Co-penned with Austin Shawn, “Fall In Love” encompasses the devastating feelings of loss and heartbreak.

“‘Cause love’s a smoke ring/ Wrapped around your finger/ One second it’s a blessing/ And the next it’s already gone/ A broken heart, I’m a walking testimony/ My confession is a lesson/ That I’m pouring out in this song/ Oh-whoa-whoa, oh-whoa-whoa/ You don’t wanna fall in love/ Oh-whoa-whoa, oh-whoa-whoa/ You don’t wanna fall in love,” sings Zimmerman in the chorus.

The Louisville native’s track listing also includes fan favorites such as “Rock And A Hard Place” and “Where It Ends,” both of which secured spots in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

“This song has changed my life, thank you to everyone that’s listened,” Zimmerman wrote on an Instagram video of him lip singing to “Rock And A Hard Place.”

Born and raised in Louisville, IL, things have come full circle for the twenty-two-year-old, who grew up listening to hours upon hours of country radio with his father.

“My dad owned a trucking business and would haul cars across the United States. We would get up at 3 a.m. and do these drives, and he would always have country music playing. One of the big country songs when I was growing up was Craig Morgan’s ‘Wake Up Lovin’ You.’ My dad loved that song and would turn it up any time it came on,” shared Zimmerman.

Following his first successful track in 2021, the singer has continued to build his career and impress listeners and professionals in the industry.

Zimmerman is set to make his Grand Ole Opry debut on November 4th, an honor presented to the singer following the accumulation of 700 million global streams and his spot in the Top 10 Billboard Country Songwriters chart and Top 30 spot on the all-genre Artist 100 chart.

He is currently wrapping up his headlining tour with two remaining dates on October 20 in Milledgeville, GA and October 21 in Rome, GA.
