NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Earlier this summer Pillbox Patti introduced herself to the world with the release of “Good People” and “Young and Stupid.” On the heels of those tracks comes “Suwannee,” a country song that offers Pillbox Patti's (Nicolette Hayford) unique perspective, and tell it like it is – the good, the bad, and the ugly – attitude. It’s a style Forbes called “hypnotic” and “poignant” while stating “It's…honesty and authenticity that Hayford wants to share with listeners on her debut project.” Listen to “Suwannee” HERE.
 
Written by Hayford with Aaron Raitiere, Ashley McBryde, Park Chisolm, Benjy Davis, Connie Harrington and Joe Clemmons, and produced by Park Chisolm, “Suwannee” is an autobiographical song about Nicolette’s youth, growing up in Florida. She didn’t have a lot, but the hard times and spirit the of the state shaped her into who she is today. On “Suwannee” Pillbox Patti sings:
 
WAY DOWN UPON THE SUWANNEE RIVER
THAT’S WHERE I COME FROM
THAT’S WHERE I COME FROM
WHERE THE SUN SHINES FOREVER
IT’S DEEP IN MY BLOOD
YOU KNOW I GREW UP
BAREFOOT DRIVIN’ WITH SOME BUGS ON THE BUMPER
FREEBIRD FREE IN AN ENDLESS SUMMER
DOWN UPON THE SUWANNEE RIVER
THAT’S WHERE I COME FROM
 
Pillbox Patti is the evolution of celebrated Nashville songwriter Nicolette Hayford. She has penned hits like “One Night Standards” and “Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega” for Ashely McBryde as well as songs for Lainey Wilson, William Michael Morgan and Chrissy Metz. In 2021 she was named MusicRow’s Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year and nominated for ACM and CMA Song Of The Year Awards.
 
After years of writing for other artists, Hayford is finally stepping into the spotlight as an artist. The ten-year town put her into a box, so she ventured off with her tribe of writers and what has emerged is Pillbox Patti, allowing Hayford to say anything and everything she wants. The fresh, authentic take on growing up in her Country is crystallized through the lens of a Florida native delivering her youth and adulthood in an honest, spirited, not always pretty, package.
 
These three songs offer a first taste of music from her upcoming project. More music from Pillbox Patti will be released later this year. Stay tuned for details at
