Rachel Farley (born March 28, 1995 in Lawrenceville, Georgia[2]) is an American country music singer.

At age 13, Farley began opening for Brantley Gilbert. She also sang background vocals on Gilbert's 2012 single "Kick It in the Sticks".[3]

She signed with Red Bow, a partnership of Broken Bow Records and RED Distribution, in 2012.[4] Red Bow released her debut single, "Ain't Easy", in early 2013. Billy Dukes from Taste of Country gave the single a 3-star rating out of 5, saying that it "doesn't quite separate itself from the pack" but that it "will no doubt work as a live anthem".[5] Ashley Cooke of Roughstock rated it 5 out of 5, saying that "There’s room for a new young female artist in Country Music and with her sassy, confident sound and rebellious demeanor, Farley may just have claimed that spot."

"Ain't Easy" was a minor Top 40 hit on the Billboard Country Airplay charts, reaching a peak of number 36. It was followed by "Midnight Road" later in 2013, which failed to chart, and Farley subsequently parted ways with Red Bow.
