Rayland Baxter's first single off his new album, Wide Awake, is about a dysfunctional relationship. However, when you realize the woman's name is Sallie Mae, you realize he's not speaking about a jilted lover, but the giant student loan corporation, that you get closer to the heart of this Nashville singer/songwriter. On his new album Wide Awake (produced by Butch Walker) Baxter presents a slick mix of power pop, rock, indie and folk. Rayland talks to us about his journey to Nashville, and learning to play guitar, thanks in part to his dad, Bucky Baxter.
