HITS Daily Double


Sometimes one listen to one song is all it takes. Such is the case with The Core-repped fledgling singer/songwriter Bailey Zimmerman, whose song “Never Comin’ Home” has prompted a whirlwind label contest.

Emissaries from every Nashville label and more than a few from both coasts are said to have been pursuing the raw-voiced 20-year-old, who’s only been singing for five months.

Where will the young troubadour land? Stay tuned.
