Ariel Hutchins is a Texas singer/songwriter and performing artist. Her music celebrates her West Texas heritage and embodies her love of country music past and present.
Ariel was born in Abilene where she spent her early childhood singing in Church. When she was eight, family tragedy placed her in the foster care system. The highlight of those years was the gift of a guitar which she received on her eleventh birthday, which she spent every free moment with thereafter, teaching herself to pick and play.
At fifteen, Ariel was adopted by Billy and Rebecca and moved to Cross Plains, Texas, to live with her new forever family. There she often sang the National Anthem at high school sports events and performed acoustically in local venues.
Upon graduation, Ariel formed her own band and began playing honky-tonks, bars, and festivals throughout the state. The Ariel Hutchins Band has opened for Kevin Fowler, Stoney Larue, Clay Walker, Aaron Watson, and William Clark Green.
Ariel’s first two singles, “Wine Won’t Work” and “Showing Off,” charted back to back as number-one singles on Texas radio charts.
Ariel is married to her high school sweetheart, Blake and together they are following their dreams and raising their young family in a small North Texas town.
Ariel is an on-stage advocate for Foster children everywhere. Through her music, she hopes to encourage those following her to pursue their every aspiration as she has, whether it be for bright lights or white picket fences . . . or both.
