Aaron Raitiere is a songwriter,singer, performer, storyteller and visual artist from Danville, Kentucky.

For the past year, he has been on the road opening for Anderson East, The Steelwoods, Midland, Paul Cauthen, Miranda Lambert, Brent Cobb, Hayes Carll, Ashley Monroe, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Willie Nelson and Family.

Aaron won a Grammy in 2019 for co-writing “I’ll Never Love Again” with Lady Gaga, Hillary Lindsay, and Natalie Hemby for A Star Is Born. He’s also placed cuts with Lambert, Ashley McBryde, Lori McKenna, the Oak Ridge Boys, Lone Bellow, Randy Rogers Band, Chris Shiflett, Midland, Brent Cobb, Shooter Jennings, and many more.

When a few friends offered to make a record on him, Aaron simply agreed to go along with it. His debut album “Single Wide Dreamer” was released on May 6,2022. Anderson East and Miranda Lambert, who co-produced the album, appear alongside Nashville musicians like Dave Cobb, Natalie Hemby, and Ashley Monroe, as well as Robert Randolph, Foy Vance, and BobWeir.

With a laid-back, speak-singing delivery, Single Wide Dreamer immediately conveys Raitiere’scontentment in living a low-key life. And although every song on the album could be considered a love song in its own way, what really ties them together is his observant writing, which is sometimes reflective, sometimes irreverent, but always inspired by his own experiences.

An avid reader, Raitiere names Edward Abbey, John McPhee, and Delia Owens as among his favorite authors, while musically he cites artists ranging from Raffi to Dave Van Ronk to Too$hort. Among his greatest influences is Shel Silverstein, a master of wordplay and storytelling. A talented painter and illustrator himself, Raitiere often posts his original sketches to Instagram and recently had his first art exhibit at LabCanna in Nashville, TN.
