A dynamic performer, multi-award winner, and charitable advocate, Hailey Benedict continues to make her mark as a rising talent in country music. This guitar-wielding singer-songwriter has defied gravity, climbing the ranks from the emerging artist who was pulled in front of a sold-out crowd at a Keith Urban concert to perform an original song to national charting and touring artist in a few short years. 2023 has been a monumental year for Hailey, topped off with being crowned the winner of the SiriusXM Top of the Country competition during the CCMA Awards weekend. Throughout the year, Hailey continued to soar to remarkable new heights in her musical journey – including a coveted slot at CMA Fest in Nashville, appearances at major events including Montreal's Lasso Festival and JUNOfest, her third CCMA Award nomination, the release of her captivating and acclaimed single Damn You July, national media appearances on CTV's Etalk and YTV, tours supporting the likes of Aaron Goodvin and Tim Hicks, and co-hosting the Country Music Alberta Awards, where she also took home three awards of her own. In her young career, she's already won 13 different awards, including a CCMA Award for Interactive Artist of the Year, in recognition of her mastery and embrace of social media. Her quarter-million-strong following on TikTok is one of the most of any Canadian country artist. Her song Wanted You To was the highest-charting independent CANCON single by a female in 2021, reaching #25 on the country charts. A strong advocate for mental health and anti-bullying, Hailey supports several charitable foundations, and was honoured as one of the youngest-ever Global Woman of Vision award recipients.
