    Haunted By You still going strong at radio! "Abby Would You Wait" going for ads July 30th

    A strong launch at radio for Rachael's 10th studio album "Haunted By You" garnered over 100 adds, across both the College, Americana and Triple A formats. Click HERE for a complete list of stations already supporting the album, organized by City/State.

    Going for ads on July 30th is the single "Abby Would You Wait". Written by Sage on an acoustic guitar, it is a departure from her signature piano, yet maintains the raw, honest lyrical content for which she is known.
