"Beautiful Mistake" was written by Jimmy Ritchey (George Strait, Jake Owen) and produced by former Little Texas Member Jeff Huskins. Pro Country Music exclusively premiered a first listen to the bittersweet ballad writing, "A sonic 180 from her last single, 'All the Good Ones Are Crazy,' Reese’s newest effort paints an unfortunately all-too-familiar picture of a relationship on the outs where the ending seemed all-but inevitable."
A departure from Hillary’s latest toe-tapping single, “All the Good Ones are Crazy,” “Beautiful Mistake” showcases the versatility of her sound. “All the Good Ones are Crazy” was also produced by Huskins and released in August of 2022 with a music video that has already amassed over 227,000 views. A music video for “Beautiful Mistake” will be premiered by Guitar Girl Magazine next Thursday, Feb. 16 and added to CMT.com the following day.
From the heart of Mississippi, Hillary is a triple threat, singer/songwriter/instrumentalist with a sound all her own that connects across generations of fans and genres. Her vocals and lyrics offer a balance between the charm of a southern belle and the ferocity of a steel magnolia. At only 8-years-old, Hillary emerged on the music scene through a series of viral Facebook videos, which fast-tracked to millions of views and a loyal following of over 300,000 fans. She quickly found herself traveling frequently to Nashville where she has collaborated with industry heavyweights, including Huskins and Dolly Parton's producer, Kent Wells.
