Country star Bailey Bryan, a Sequim native, is taking on Nashville with a new perspective

Nashville, TN — Sequim native, Bailey Bryan, settled into Nashville as a teen. Sow she's finding her place in music city with a new perspective.

"I've been writing a ton of new songs and I've been spending a lot of time in the studios," said the singer songwriter. "Now i'm like okay what's inside me right now that i want to put into the world?"

Most of her current inspiration draws from her real-life experiences.

"A lot of my ideas have to do with just trying to figure out how to be a grownup. I'm trying to channel everything that's swirling in my head as I try to navigate the beginning of adulthood."

Something else that's new with Bailey - her very first tattoo. It's a very simple script on her forearm that reads "I'm doing a new thing."

"It's my favorite bible verse, Isaiah 43:19. Especially as I've ventured into the music industry, it reminds me one, that i shouldn't be afraid to do a new thing. But it also reminds me that when i'm afraid to do a new thing, that God's always working he's always working on something new for me."

Bailey is also crossing off another bucket list item. This friday night she plays the Whidbey Island Fair.
