The Cause Hits Home For Singer/Songwriter Who Shares Her Personal Connection
Nashville TN, December X, 2017 - “Next Big Thing" Bailey Bryan is partnering with ALEX AND ANI to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. ALEX AND ANI, through its Charity by Design program, has created limited-edition Angel Charm and Unicorn Charm bangles, donating 20% of the purchase price to CMN Hospitals helping raise funds for patient programs, new equipment, research, charitable care and more. The cause is dear to Bryan, who underwent spinal surgery at age 16 to treat her scoliosis at Seattle Children’s Hospital, a CMN hospital. The surgery left her with a scar that covers the length of her back, which inspired the song “Scars” from her debut EP So Far, a "burnished, rhythmically carbonated set of sharply crafted and eagerly confessional songs” (NPR)."
“Its really awesome to get to partner with ALEX AND ANI to help benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” Bryan said. “I want to help kids and their families who are in need of treatment, whether it’s scoliosis surgery like me, or something else. CMN helps change lives, and I'm so glad to be able to help in some small way.”

19-year-old Bailey Bryan, who fell in love with storytelling and songwriting at an early age, penned every track on her debut EP SO FAR, which The New York Times applauds for being “filled with rich songwriting.” Since Billboard’s “Chartbreaker" first arrived on the scene with her debut single "Own It," critics have prepared the world to "fall in love"(PEOPLE) with the singer/songwriter. The New York Times went on to hail SO FAR (300 Entertainment/Warner Music Nashville) as “excellent, infectious” while Rolling Stoneand Entertainment Weekly both touted Bryan as an "artist you need to know." The Washington State native is continuing to introduce her new music to live audiences across the country, recently wrapping a tour run with Chris Lane, following recent dates with Kane Brown, label-mates Dan + Shay and major summer festivals including Stagecoach, CMA Music Fest, LakeShake, Faster Horses, Watershed and more.
