Raised on classic country and the blues, Julianna Rankin finds herself influenced by a spectrum of artists ranging from Keith Whitley, Bobbie Gentry and Waylon Jennings to Bonnie Raitt, Carole King and James Taylor. Her journey into the industry began in 2018, when she took a headfirst dive towards discovering her artistry while attending Texas A&M University. Since then, Julianna has made her home in New Braunfels, TX, to which she credits a strong circle of talented musicians and local collaboration for recent successes. In the past year, the young singer-songwriter has found herself opening for artists such as Robert Earl Keen, Stoney LaRue, Randall King, Django Walker, Adam Hood, Jason Eady, William Beckmann, Midnight River Choir and more. With her strong vocals and soul-penetrating lyrics, Julianna demands attention from the growing audiences that are lucky enough to catch her sets.

"A multitalented troubadour with something to say and the means to push her voice and songs to points that make you pay attention and want to listen again and again."

— Brad Beheler, Galleywinter

Miss Me When I'm Gone
I washed all the dishes in the sink
Sewed a few patches on your jeans
Ironed all your shirts for the week, so you didn’t have to
Swept all the floors and made our bed
So you’d have a safe place to lay your head
Put some dinner on the stove, so when you got home you wouldn’t know
That I spent the whole damn day longing to hear what you’d never say
And I can’t help but think

(Chorus)
Sometimes I wonder if you even gave a damn
If I cut my hair, lost some weight or gave you all I can
So just in case on the day I decide to leave
I’ll take care of everything and be halfway out of town
Before the lights come on
Just so you don’t have to miss me when I’m gone

Left my ring and a letter by the bed and hoped you believed everything I said
Cause I meant it
I pray that your life is easy and you don’t look in another’s eyes and see me and wonder
What we could’ve been

(Chorus)
Sometimes I wonder if you even gave a damn
If I cut my hair, lost some weight or gave you all I can
So just in case on the day I decide to leave
I’ll take care of everything and be halfway out of town
Before the lights come on
Just so you don’t have to miss me when I’m gone

(break)
So don’t worry about being alone
I left everything in it’s place at home
Just so
Just so you don’t have to miss me when I’m gone
Oh and you won’t even miss me when I’m gone

Devil Had Blue Eyes
There was a girl in Upshur county, she fell in love with a traveling man
You know he come from the wrong side of the tracks but she liked holding his hand
It came it pass one Sunday, when he was rolling in a Coupe de Ville
He said it’s time to ride outside the city limits down through the cotton fields, oh down through the cotton fields

The kind of man mama told me not to chase
Southern souls will lead you far from grace
The good book says don’t believe his lies
Oh but nobody told me the devil had blue eyes

She sat next to the preacher man with a few things to admit
She said I followed desire straight through the fire just for the hell of it
Just for the hell of it

The kind of man mama told me not to chase
Southern souls will lead you far from grace
The good book says don’t believe his lies
Oh but nobody told me the devil had blue eyes

Father please forgive me I have sinned
And you don’t know half the places I’ve been
The good book says don’t believe his lies
Oh but nobody told me the devil had blue eyes
Oh nobody told me the devil had blue eyes
Oh nobody told me the devil had blue eyes
