ABOUT REID HAUGHTON:
A singer-songwriter from small-town Haleyville, Alabama, Reid Haughton mixes contemporary Country melodies with modern Southern rock-inspired vocals. Haughton’s influences were shaped by his father’s vast taste in music, which included everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd to the Grateful Dead. With no interest in ever becoming a frontman, Haughton picked up a guitar for the first time during church lessons. It wasn’t long until his music teacher pushed him to hum some melodies along with his guitar. This quickly started Haughton’s transition from wanting to know how to play a few songs to tirelessly working to become a Country musician.
In his map dot town of population: 4,000, and until recently, a dry county, there were few opportunities for Haughton to hone his craft. When Haughton attended college at Auburn University, he’d knock on business doors and offer to play at local bars for free. He quickly became immersed in the college circuit, performing all throughout the Southeast.
Haughton’s ambition and ability to evolve have shown through his music career. After releasing the second song he had ever written titled “Make You Mine” in 2018, Haughton began participating in co-writes working with writers such as Adam Craig and Jordan Walker. In 2021, Haughton released his single, “Got the Girl,” and toured throughout the South with rising artist Jordan Rowe. The up-and-comer has completed opening slots for artists like Dwight Yoakam and Jon Pardi.
