Singer-songwriter and the Truckload Carriers Association’s Highway Angel program spokesperson Lindsay Lawler released her debut single, Goodbye Go, to radio earlier this week. The single comes from Lawler’s latest album, Two Peaches Six Cookies, which released to iTunes March 6.
The latest in her third-annual Highway Angel Truckstop Tour series of performances, meanwhile, happens tonght, June 4 at the TravelCenters of America location in London, Ohio, at 7 p.m. (See below for a full slate of performances through the Fall.)
“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,” she says, “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.”
