Occupying the creative crossroads where country, rock, and soul collide, Reid Haughton is a pure frontman raised on the stage and steeped rock ‘n’ roll, and a Nashville singer-songwriter working to put gritty live-show magic back where it belongs… at the center of everything. A native of Haleyville, Alabama, (just south of Muscle Shoals), Haughton’s guitar-slinging approach was inspired early on by swampy, swaggering, soulful acts like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Wilson Pickett, The Rolling Stones, Hank Williams Jr., and Jimi Hendrix. Cutting his teeth in the bar scene of Auburn University, he developed a reputation as a fiery frontman and built a grassroots following all over the South, releasing a series of independently successful heartland anthems like “Make You Mine,” “Ain’t Close to Anywhere,” “Gettin’ Over Her” and “Got the Girl.” After moving to Nashville in 2020, he now embarks on a new, edgier chapter with his self-titled EP debut, produced by Sadler Vaden (Grammy-winning guitarist for Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, producer to Morgan Wade, and more). Mixing the momentum of rock, the heart behind Southern soul, and the songwriting tradition of country, tracks like “Day You Don’t” and “Cuttin’ Me Loose” take the electrifying energy of the stage and crank it up to 11, while others like “She Is” capture the tender glow of true love and “Can’t Please ‘Em All” serves as a true-to-yourself anthem. When Reid isn’t writing songs or traveling for his own shows, he is more than likely attending others’ concerts or cooking on his Blackstone.
