Rising country newcomer Olivia Lane will release her self-titled EP on July 29 via Big Spark Music Group. The compilation includes her current single, “Make My Own Sunshine,” described as “vocally crafted to perfection” (#CM Chat) with “joyful lyrics” (RS Country), in addition to six new tracks. Sparked by the overwhelming fan response to her new single’s take on Murphy’s Law, the always positive Lane launched the #SunshineMovement via videos and social media, encouraging others to spread joy, pay it forward and make their own sunshine. As seen in her first #SunshineMovement series’ video seen here, she spreads the sunshine via hugs in Las Vegas! Previously opening select dates for Cam, Wynonna Judd, Kip Moore and Randy Houser, the powerful and lively vocalist that “just belongs on stage” (CMT.com) can be seen at various venues throughout the U.S. and Canada this summer.
“I’m over the moon excited to put out my new EP! Over the last year and a half, I’ve been lucky enough to work with some incredible songwriters on these seven songs and I’m very proud of them,” enthused Lane. “Each song is near and dear to my heart and represents exactly who I am right now in my life.”
Produced by GRAMMY-nominated musician and 2015 Academy of Country Music’s (ACM) “Studio Recording Award” honoree Ilya Toshinskiy, Lane’s credit is on six of the seven EP tracks and features collaborations with hit makers, including Toshinskiy (Kacey Musgraves, Martina McBride), Jim Beavers (Chris Stapleton, Tim McGraw), David Frasier (Kip Moore, Lee Brice), Leland Grant (Jordan Pruitt, Josh Jones), Bobby Hamrick (“Nashville” Cast, Natalie Stovall), Tammy Hyler (Martina McBride, Shania Twain), Danny Myrick (Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw), Aaron Scherz (Keith Urban, Maddie & Tae) and Shaye Smith (Martina McBride, Trace Adkins).
