Hailed as “one of the fastest rising talents in the business,” (Sounds Like Nashville) rising country newcomer Olivia Lane released her self-titled debut EP (Big Spark Music Group) today at iTunes and all digital retailers. The inspiring six-song collection “dazzles with a down-home charm” (Sounds Like Nashville) and includes current vibrant single, “Make My Own Sunshine.”
“Today is the day! I’m so happy these songs are going out into the world! The response has already been amazing. Can’t wait to let my fans in on the life I’ve been living the last few years pursuing my dreams,” beams Lane.
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).
Following the sunshine, Lane is headed west to sing the national anthem prior to the San Diego Padres Game at Petco Park in San Diego, CA on August 1 in between tour stops across the country. Previously she has opened select dates for Cam, Wynonna Judd, Kip Moore and Randy Houser and earlier this month made her songwriting round debut at Nashville’s legendary Bluebird Café.
Spreading good vibes, 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. Watch Lane as she brings the sunshine in Las Vegas giving out free hugs and in Nashville handing out free cupcakes.
Garnering media attention for her effervescent personality and powerhouse vocals, Lane has been selected as selected for iTunes Country New Artist Spotlight, Entertainment Weekly “Breaking Big” artist, one of Rolling Stone Country’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” and for CMT’s Listen Up Music Discovery Program.
