Jaida Dreyer Releases "I've Been Everywhere" Following Appearance on USA Network’s “Real Country”

Singer-songwriter Jaida Dreyer has released her version of the hit Hank Snow song, “I’ve Been Everywhere,” following her appearance on USA Network’s“Real Country.”  The track is now available on all digital platforms, including Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music and more.
The classic Country standard was written by Australian country singer Geoff Mack in 1959 and became most widely known when it was a number-one US country hit for the late Grand Ole Opry entertainer, Hank Snow on RCA Victor. The song in which he portrayed himself as a hitchhiker bragging about all the towns he'd been through, was later recorded by artists including Lynn Anderson, Asleep at the Wheel, Johnny Cash and more and has also appeared on TV and movies including Pat Garrett and Billy the Kidd when Kris Kristofferson did an abbreviated version and Bruce Springsteen used the song as a snippet for “Light of Day” during his 1999-2000 tour. 
Representing Team Jake Owen, Dreyer took viewers and judges by storm as she took the stage for the first time, competing on the show, which aired Tuesday, Nov. 27. See her performance of “Fancy” here and “I’ve Been Everywhere” here
Jaida Dreyer has had songs recorded by Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Sara Evans, Granger Smith, Reba McEntire, Eric Church and more. Her diverse writing style has had her penning songs with the likes of Guy Clark to top writers on the LA pop scene. She is accredited with nine cuts in the hit television series "Nashville,” and songs featured in A&E’s “The Returned” and Netflix’s “Longmire.” In 2016, she celebrated a multi-week #1 with Luke Bryan’s “Home Alone Tonight” featuring Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild.
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.”
Dreyer didn’t grow up intending to become a country music artist, but to hear the story of her crooked road to Nashville, it’s clear she was meant to be here all along. Her unmistakable voice, bubbly personality, and eclectic, insightful songwriting scored her a publishing deal with Grammy Award-winning producer Byron Gallimore (Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Sugarland) at the precocious age of 19.
Since then, she has achieved success as a singer, songwriter, and performer whose traveled coast-to-coast performing for fans, and opening for artists ranging from Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, to the legendary Merle Haggard.  She is also a frequent guest on The Grand Ole Opry.
She credits her eclectic taste in music to her mother, who introduced her to classic artists like Kitty Wells and Hank Williams, Sr., as well as then-current hitmakers like Tanya Tucker, Keith Whitley, and Patty Loveless. As a pre-teen, Dreyer also found herself drawn to a variety of singer-songwriters like Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard, Lyle Lovett, and Steve Earle.
