By the time Hannah Bethel left small town Houghton, Michigan for the bright lights of Nashville, Tennessee at the tender age of 18, her self-released first record had already been out almost a year. As a teenager, she got her feet wet playing fairs, bars, coffeehouses, and country western shows all around the Upper Midwest. Three more independent records were created in Nashville between 2010 and 2015 with The Freedom EP garnering the "Independent Country Album of the Year Award" from examiner.com in 2012. In the last decade, Bethel's well developed style and unique blend of country, Americana, and rock has continued to garner her acclaim from renowned media including Billboard, The Washington Post, Maverick, Americana Highways, The Boot and others.
Here she is with The House Is On Fire which gained her first place in the Americana category at the International Songwriting Competition.
