One of Iowa's favorite musicians is making her debut tv performance on Wednesday, January 25th. After being honored as having the best country music album, in 2022, by Taste of Country Music, the wave of time in the national spotlight keeps on trucking for this Shueyville native.

In 2022, she found herself on tour with Lainey Wilson and traveled across America. She made an appearance at the Grand Ole Opry, performed at the historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, she got a shoutout from the viral sensation "Corn Kid", and even had time to prank fellow country star, Jon Pardi. Hailey Whitters has been on one heck of a run as she continues to become a star in her own right.

She had one hell of a 2022 and that success continues at the start of 2023. She announced to her 67.9k Instagram followers last night that she will be making her first tv performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. 

A huge congratulations to this Iowa native as she continues to make Iowa proud with all of her accomplishments and success. Anytime Iowa can get a little bit of love in the national spotlight, you can't help but feel a little bit of pride to live in the corn state.

It's been a lot of fun to follow Hailey and cheer her on in her country music journey. It'll be exciting to see what she does next. How can she top the year she had in 2022? I know I'm excited to see her try.

Don't miss Hailey's big moment tomorrow as the Jimmy Kimmel Live show airs at 10:35 central time.
