RaeLynn is praising the power of prayer in her new song, “Small Town Prayer,” out today, Friday, June 25. In the tune, RaeLynn sings about all the seemingly simple prayers people small towns pray. (“Somebody’s crops need rain, somebody’s truck needs tires.”) And although these requests are coming from a small place and going to a big God, RaeLynn sings that “nothing hits Heaven like a small town prayer.”

The track was written by RaeLynn, Drew Kennedy and Ben Stennis, and produced by Corey Crowder. In the song, the artist showcases her sincere voice while singing against country instrumentation laden with dobro and acoustic guitar.

“Some pray for rain to make a living and feed their families, some pray for success to move their lives forward, and some pray for healing,” says RaeLynn about the song. “The asks of God are wide from all that pray in this world, and I just tapped into how I remember feeling praying when I lived in my small town.”

“Small Town Prayer” follows recently-released song “Made For Me To Love,” which RaeLynn wrote about the upcoming arrival of her first child with husband Josh Davis. The singer and her husband announced the news of their pregnancy on her birthday, May 4.

“Well this Georgia Peach and Texas Rose did the thing. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! I’m 27 years old and 21 weeks into carrying our BABY GIRL,” she wrote in the announcement post.

RaeLynn also posted photos from her baby shower on June 13, revealing that they’ll be naming their daughter Daisy Rae Davis.

“Oh Daisy Davis, you are so loved,” she shared.

In addition to releasing new music and preparing for the birth of her daughter, RaeLynn has been performing at Blake Shelton’s Ole Red bar as part of a residency dubbed RaeLynn’s Downtown Party Live From Ole Red. She will perform her last two shows of the residency on June 30 and July 7. The shows benefit the CMA Foundation and ACM Lifting Lives’ COVID-19 Response Fund.
