Lacy Green grew up in Pilot Mountain, NC and began her singing career with her parents in their local church. If you’ve never heard of Pilot Mountain, perhaps you will recognize the fictional and legendary town of Mount Pilot as portrayed in the televisions series The Andy Griffith Show.
Lacy attended college pursuing a career in music journalism but she found the lure of performing on stage instead of writing to be too strong. As she performed around campus she realized her career path was going to be defined as a performer instead. She found herself drawn away form the early influences of soul singers Sam Cooke and Otis Redding to those influences of country, including Miranda Lambert, Alison Krauss and the New Grass Revival to name a few.
She has been working on her debut EP with a renowned songwriter and producer, Ronnie Bowman, and For the Summertime is her first release. It’s a love ballad that depicts summertime and romance. It’s a catchy ballad with some good impressions of love in the summer – “hanging by the moon by the sycamore tree, running and jumping into the water,” and all the fun that goes with summer romances.
Lacy has good control over her voice and notes and this combination makes the song very much worth listening to and downloading. You can find more about Lacy at http://www.lacygreen.com where you can listen to For the Summertime and download the song. She is also on Twitter as lacycgreen and you can also follow her on Facebook.
She’s a bright new voice in country music and I look forward to hearing more from her as I am sure you will as well.
