|Half Broke Horses|
Born in Thunder Bay, Ontario, and raised in Latimer, Iowa, Jaida Dreyer was a “horse-crazy” little girl who grew up showing competitively and won her first of many world championships at 5, getting an early education in the sort of work ethic required to reach success. Before she turned 18, Dreyer had lived in seven states, including Iowa, Florida, Wisconsin, and Tennessee, with the bulk of her time spent between Texas and Georgia. During those gypsy years, Dreyer says, music and songwriting remained a constant, and when forced to retire from riding at 17, she took the biggest risk of her life: “The only other thing I knew how to do was write songs,” Dreyer says. “Growing up on the road, I learned that life isn’t a fairy tale,” Dreyer says. “It gave me a lot to write about, and a story that most 17 year old girls don’t have. I look at it as a blessing. My crooked road has given me a career.”
Jaida released two singles to Country radio in 2012, “Guys Girl” and “Confessions.” The year proved to be a busy one for the young singer, with a busy slate of activities including a coast-to-coast radio promotion tour that saw her make stops at more than 70 radio stations. Along with producer Byron Gallimore, Dreyer has been working meticulously on her debut album, which is now available on all digital retailers. The album features a special guest appearance by Sugarland’s Kristian Bush on the track “Boy Who Cried Love,” who co-wrote the song with her. A talented songwriter in her own right, Jaida was involved in writing or co-writing all of the songs on her debut release. Her current single “Half Broke Horses” is at country radio now and scheduled for impact Feb. 19.
