Michelle Bailey releases funky new single “Words in My Mouth”


by Dave Carew

One of the coolest, most fun, most energetic new singles to come across my desk in a long time, Michelle Bailey’s “Words in My Mouth” is destined to be a live club favorite for years to come. Wrapping itself around a funky bass/percussion groove designed to get foots tapping and hands rhythmically tapping on bar counters and club tables, “Words in My Mouth” is the kind of instant jolt you need to help make your night out way-beyond-worthwhile.

The lyrical hook of the song is sung straight-ahead-and-slyly-sexy by Michelle to the guy she’s into. “You put words in my mouth, baby / Like . . . ‘I love you’”).  It’s all a lot of fun, and another funky gem from a performer who has been delighting Nashville audiences for more than fifteen years.


Michelle Bailey is a vocalist and fiddler, born and raised in the mountain West. L.A.-based producer and arranger Jamie Glaser has hailed her as “an expressively captivating artist.” Among the top-tier acts she has opened for are Miranda Lambert, Bo Bice, Phil Vassar, Suzy Bogguss, Restless Heart, and Sawyer Brown.

Editor’s Note: “Underground Nashville” covers artists, authors, musicians, poets, political figures, and other compelling people and happenings not typically covered by the mainstream Nashville media. It also presents reflections and commentary from an underground/indie perspective, offering “thoughts from the shadows of a great American city.”
