Elle King and Miranda Lambert’s new duet “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”

“The true story of this song sums up our wild friendship,” Elle said in a release. “Miranda is someone I have looked up to as a songwriter, musician, performer, and human being for a long time. So our tumbleweed snowball story of getting to know each other is the ultimate real deal kinda thing. Nobody revs me up, kicks my ass on stage, or treats me more like family than Miranda Lambert.”

Samantha Crain’s new single “Bloomsday”

The pandemic found Samantha re-discovering the beauty of her hometown. “There were alleyways I’d passed every day that I’d never noticed, flowering bushes that I’d never glanced at, and craftsman houses with porch cats and gardens… parks I’d never walked to the center of, trails I’d never walked, public statues I’d never turned towards. I felt like a tourist in my own town.”

Lainey Wilson’s new album “Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin'”

“There comes a point where you finally realize you’re going to be stuck in the same exact place for a very long time if you don’t hurry up and do something about it. Breaking somebody’s heart, it’s terrible. Sometimes it hurts just as bad breaking somebody’s as yours. It hurts just as bad getting yours hurt. But yeah, ‘Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin” is just about letting those walls down and just cutting to it.”

Abigail Neilson’s new music video for “Seams”

The single was inspired by Abigail’s own experience with heartbreak, and is something most everyone can relate to! She said “I had so much I wanted to say to one person but couldn’t, so I crafted the lyrics with the thought of what I’d wanna say to this person.” Filming a music video during the pandemic taught her how to grow her imagination and how to tell stories in new ways, and she really enjoyed getting to be out in nature.

Lyssa Coulter’s new release “Alone With U”

“This single release is a new beginning to finding out who I am and embracing the journey to find out about myself and who I want to be. I spent a lot of time over quarantine reflecting on my purpose and the impact I want to bring to people and the message and sound I want to send out, and this single is the first step to showing my audience what I have to offer.” 

Laurr’s new release “Sell My Soul”

“The inspiration behind Sell My Soul came from what people did or would be willing to do for money during quarantine in April. I myself had to work three jobs to keep from feeling insecure in a time of uncertainty. While others decided to take some unsavory paths, which were also very tempting to me. With the help of my producer/co-writer Corey Lawson, I feel we were able to capture the meaning of the lyrics with a driving bluesy melody and dark tone.”
