Country and pop singer-songwriter Fancy Hagood is ready for his next chapter. Born in Georgia and raised in Arkansas, the 32 year-old had "a very traditional Christian evangelical" upbringing. Faced with the difficulty of breaking as a queer country artist, Hagood worked hard to put out his debut album in Nashville "Southern Curiosity" and brand it as a pop project.
To his surprise, the musician received overwhelming support from country listeners, giving him the encouragement to release more pop-infused country. Partnering with Kacey Musgraves on "Blue Dream Baby," and earning approval form Elton John and Brandi Carlile as an artist to watch, Hagood is well on his way to the spotlight. Furthermore, the songwriter has penned hits for artists like Christina Aguilera, Little Big Town, Anderson East & Rascal Flats.
Following his recent worldwide signing with UTA, Hagood is opening for the Brother Osborne this month. His manager, Natalie Osborne, is sister to the duo; Hagood considers the Osbornes family at this point. Despite his roots clashing with his identity at times, Hagood embraces this ironic affair with country music. Hagood's newest single off his sophomore album "Southern Sound" perfectly represents a new beginning for the country songwriter as he leans more into the genre.
Hagood's personality and good vibes are almost infectious, and fans can fill their week with Fancy by tuning in to his two Apple Radio shows, "Trailblazers" & "Hallelujah Anyway." The Georgia-born superstar has been featured on playlists like New Music Friday Country, shine, Young Nashville & more.
