2019 has been a banner year for one local young musician. 16-year-old Baylee Littrell was born and raised in Georgia. He loves dogs, trucks and Country music - which might be a little surprising when you find out who his Dad is. His father is Brian Littrelll, one fifth of “the greatest Boy Band’ in history (according to Baylee), the Backstreet Boys. But much like other great country singers like Thomas Rhett, whose father Rhett Aikens was a successful chart topping country singer in the 90’s and is currently one of the top song writers in Nashville, Baylee is determined to make a career of his own with great songwriting skills and hard work.
November 15, 2019 saw the release of his first album 770-Country (770 is his area code in Georgia) and tonight November 19th, he will play his first solo show at the famous Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Ga. - the very venue that helped launch the careers of successful artist like John Mayer, Sugarland , and Justin Bieber. The show is sold out!
I had a chance to talk with Baylee and his Dad Brian about growing up in Georgia, being the son of a Backstreet Boy and how his first break up lead to his favorite song on his new album. Both Dad and Mom LeighAnne are with him all the way, but are careful to let him find his own path to stardom.
