RaeLynn Dishes on New Single 'For a Boy' and the Date That Inspired It

By
RaeLynn is following up her breakout single with an equally sweet (and dare we say, even more catchy) tune about young love.
"For a Boy" is available now on iTunes and ETonline has a sneak peek of the track in the player above.
"I wrote it about this dinner date I went on, and this guy was super transparent with me and kinda wore his heart on his sleeve," RaeLynn tells ETonline. "You know, guys always wanna be macho and that kinda thing, so I had this idea of 'for a boy, this guy's pretty transparent and cool.'"
The 20-year-old says that the boy in question is still in her life, insisting that he's "just a friend!" But does he know what part he played in inspiring her music?
"I don't think he knows it's about him -- and we'll keep it that way!" she says with a laugh, pondering that "maybe" he'll figure it out once the song hits radio.
"I'm just gonna be like, 'I don't know! Whatever you say, man!'" she jokes.
RaeLynn is still busy promoting her Me EP, but says to expect a full-length album sometime this fall.
The Voice alum recently wrapped an opening slot on Miranda Lambert's Platinum Tour, commemorating the milestone with a new tattoo.

March is proving to be a big month for RaeLynn! In addition to dropping her new single on Monday, she is also just kicked off her week-long, headlining Music in Our Schools tour. In honor of the initiative's 30th anniversary, RaeLynn will travel to five cities across the U.S. to support music education.
