Rising Indie Country Artist Raihanna Estrada Debuts Uptempo Single

Raihanna Estrada is an independent country artist originally from Lake Berryessa, California who is now living in Country Music, USA. That’s Nashville if you’re stupid, or somethin’. Raihanna has loved performing since she was a little girl. She sang along to Disney songs and tunes of Annie, and around age 11 found her voice singing Country music. Around age thirteen, Raihanna began writing her own songs in her notebooks and learned to sing from popular artists that had songs out at that time. Such as Christina Aguilera, Jo Dee Messina, Travis Tritt, Dixie Chicks, Phil Vassar, LeAnn Rimes, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. She learned to mimic these artists well enough to sing each one. One day while driving up the windy roads to Lake Berryessa, Raihanna asked her Mom “Which artist should I sing? Name any artist and I’ll sing just like them.” Raihanna’s Mom replied, “What about Raihanna? What does RAIHANNA sound like?” That was a defining moment for her and made her really develop her own style and a voice made for Country music. In October 2014, Raihanna and her husband, Eric Bickerstaffe, made the big move to Nashville, Tennessee and are currently continuing their journey in Music City.
