The Artist and Spokesperson’s First Single Hits Country Radio
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 1, 2015) – Recording artist and Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) Highway Angel program spokesperson Lindsay Lawler released her debut single, Goodbye Go, to radio today. The single comes from Lawler’s latest album, Two Peaches Six Cookies, which released to iTunes March 6.
Though the singer-songwriter may seem new to country music fans, Lawler’s already amassed a following in her niche market: the trucking industry. She recently kicked off her third consecutive Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour, hosted by TravelCenters of America (TA), sponsored by Schneider, Wholesale Truck and Finance (WTF) and EpicVue, and in support of TCA’s Highway Angel program, which recognizes drivers for their extraordinary acts on the road.
“We’ve been fortunate to provide drivers entertainment out on the road for the past two years,” said Lawler. “Releasing a single to radio offers a whole new element to this year’s tour. It gives me the chance to share my music with a new demographic, as well as provide a voice for those hard working men and women in the trucking industry.”
With the release of Two Peaches Six Cookies, Lawler introduced listeners to a sound she’s dubbed “Countrihanna” – an infections, beat-driven mix of club and country music inspired by one of her favorite artists.
“I’m a huge fan of Rihanna and realized one day that I listen to a lot of her music, so why wouldn’t I make a record inspired by that? I love that music can be whatever it wants these days. Instead of putting my new music into a category or genre, I’m just calling it Countrihanna. It’s club music that has driving grooves, which makes it great to dance or drive to… But then it also features fiddle, steel and banjo, cementing that country vibe.
“I’ve wanted to achieve this sound for a long time now. This sound is me, and I’m excited to share it with the world of country music.”
Lawler’s next tour stop will take place Thursday at the TA in London, Ohio. To learn more about this year’s Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour, visit truckstoptour.com.
