"For the Summertime - New Release by Lacy Green"

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 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. - Country Music Tattle Tale

"New Song - For The Summertime - By Lacy Green"

You probably haven’t heard of Lacy Green…just yet.

From her biography is looks like Lacy has been dreaming of country stardom for a long time. She began work on her debut set of songs since her college days. She has her debut single out at radio now and it’s a good one.

This songs reminds me of the Strawberry Wine debut from Deana Carter. For The Summertime has the innocent vocals. It has the story about a boy from the summer just a few years ago.

It seems for women there is always the story about the summertime boy. And while the memories all have their unique aspects, when a song like this comes out it seems like everybody can put themselves in the song. That’s something I love about country music. People can put themselves and their situations in songs and completely relate. I’m not sure how it works, but it does and it makes for great country songs.

If it were up to me 'For The Summertime' by Lacy Green would be getting tons of radio play. She’s on an independent label and the odds are long, but I hope she can keep getting notice on the web with country fans. The song is too good to be looked over by the general country audience.

Lacy’s voice is great. It’s got a little bit of rasp, but not too much. It has just the right amount of power behind the words. It’s hard to explain, but she sings powerful while still sounding like she’s softly telling you the story of her summertime boy.

For The Summertime is a great song.

"Lacy Green Stops By BMI"

Singer/songwriter Lacy Green recently visited BMI’s Nashville offices during a brief break from her radio tour in support of her debut single, “For the Summertime.” While in Music City, the 22-year-old North Carolina native also sat down for a series of writing sessions with producer and acclaimed BMI singer/songwriter Ronnie Bowman. Pictured are AristoMedia’s Jeff Walker, BMI’s Leslie Roberts, Lacy Green, and BMI’s Bradley Collins. -

"Lacy Green"

Jamestown, NC - The bucolic main drag off the corner of Ragsdale Road and U.S. 29 is hardly known for roof-raising music. But that is exactly what Lacy Green served up when she stopped by to perform at the Southern Roots restaurant.
A crowd of dozens surrounded the Chapel Hill recording artist as she regaled them with several of her hits, including "Something I Can Do Without", "Second Coming", and "For the Summertime".
Family and friends were in attendance as she started off her set with a cover of Eric Clapton's "Change the World", Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come", and hits by Alison Krauss, Shania Twain and the Dixie Chicks.
Flanking her were band members Johnny Green on guitar, as well as a suite of cellists and other performers.
Mr. Green, the father of Ms. Green, has been active in the group since its inception.
Throughout the performance, Ms. Green struggled to overcome the din of conversation and noise. For those lucky to hear her, her voice resembled a mix of Krauss, Natalie Maines, and a soulful Lucinda Williams.
If the fans were put off by the noise, they didn't appear to show it. One anonymous woman in particular - within line of sight of the singer/songwriter - flipped out her camera phone and recorded video of her with little notice.
A senior at the University of Chapel Hill, the twenty-two year old artist has proven to be a breakout star on the local country scene. Her latest single is charting at number six on the charts, prompting rumors of a deal with Sony in Nashville, Tennessee.
The scuttlebutt is not far off - Ms. Green is currently laying down tracks with legendary record producer Ronnie Bowman, who has worked with such acts as Reba McIntyre and Merle Haggard.

Lacy Green is the envy of the Triad country scene. No, really. In a space of a few years, her songs have shot up to the top of the local charts, she's gotten to perform with such artists as Sammy Shelor and Mark Vernon, and she's recorded with Nashville music legend Ronnie Bowman. Oh, did we mention she's still a (college) student?
Magazine33 caught up with Lacy via email. They discussed her humble roots, fondness for giving back, and love of Martin guitars.
33: How did you know you wanted to be a musician?
Lacy Green: I guess I have always wanted to be a musician in a recreational sense. I grew up in a musical family, and I was always going to shows and singing in church. At age 13, I recorded my first demo as an audition piece for the NCSA summer vocal program, and that really served as my first serious music project. Throughout high school I was performing, but I wasn't really considering music as a real profession at that time. It wasn't until after a year in college and a couple of unsuccessful majors that I realized that nothing fulfilled me like music, and that despite the challenges that was what I wanted to dedicate my life to.
33: How do you get ready to perform? Are there any warm-up exercises you use? Music, meditation, etc.?
LG: I try to keep my voice on rest as much as possible on the day of and prior to the show. I haven't had much technical vocal training, so I don't really do warm-up exercises, but I do have the setlist designed to sort of start off easier and lead into the more difficult, belting numbers, which seems to help. I also really like to go out and visit with people in the audience beforehand to take my mind off of any anxiety I might have about the show.
33: Your singing style has been compared to Shania Twain, the Dixie Chicks and Alison Krauss. Is that a fair assumption?
LG: That is definitely a great and humbling compliment! What I love about those artists is that each of them really brought something fresh and different to the table and helped to push the boundaries of popular country music. That is definitely something I hope to attain in my music.
33: Your latest track "Something I Can Do Without" is charting at number 6 on the country charts on ReverbNation. How has the site affected your publicity?
LG: ReverbNation is a great site! It allows me to have all of my promotional material in one place, and it is especially great for networking with other musicians and venues outside of my home base. I've been featured on a couple of their charts which has sent a lot of new listeners to my music that would not have heard it otherwise. It also syncs with my Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts, allowing me to track what people are listening to and where new fans are coming from, which is a great aid to improving my publicity.
33: In addition to performing, you're very active in the community - Project 25:40 comes to mind. How did you become aware of them, and why are they so important to you?
LG: Community involvement is important because it requires that my life and time be about more than just me. Sometimes pursuing a music career can feel really self-involved, so I like to have time set aside in the week to do things that are outside my own wants. I grew up in a really small town, and I always felt so supported by that community. Though I have since moved to different and larger cities, that support really impacted my life in a positive way, and it is something I have tried my best to recycle, especially to other young people.
33: What is the one thing people don't know about you?
LG: Hmm...That one is tricky. I am pretty much an open book who loves to talk. If there is something people don't know about me, it's usually because I don't know it about myself yet! But just for grins, most people don't know that I've been brought home in a cop car! Only I was six, and after riding my bike too far away from home, I was picked up while trying to cross an eight-lane intersection. I think that also served as my first official "grounding."
33: If you could do anything other than singing, what would it be and why?
LG: Any job where I got to be creative or work with kids. My dream job would be finding a way to combine the two!
33: Final question: Team Fender or Team Gibson? Which do you prefer?
LG: Team Martin! I play my 000-18 at most shows. Actually, we have had several guitars from Fender, Gibson and Martin all come through my house at various points (my Dad is big into collecting pre-war guitars especially), and I have truly loved each of them for different things. So I take each of them on an individual level based on what particular sound I am looking for. I also have a Fender Paisley Telecaster, and my Dad's been letting me work on his newest addition, a 1933 Gibson L-00. - Magazine 33

"In the Studio: Lacy Green"

"Very Talented, Beautiful, and on top of her game! Nice to see an artist who knows exactly what she wants and has the plan to get it! There's no stopping Lacy!!! A real pleasure to have in the studio!"

"Old Home Week at the High Point Theatre"

When the Carter Brothers follow Lacy Green to the stage set up outside the High Point Theatre this Friday, several scenarios will be in play simultaneously. The obvious storyline is three Nashville artists with deep roots in High Point return home to lend their talents to help raise funds for that most worthy cause, the United Way. The second is “ local boys make good,” in which brothers Danny and Timmy Carter hone their craft in their hometown, become wildly popular regionally, take their act to Nashville, where they continue to pay their dues before finally seeing results from their labors. The parallel plot is “local girl making good,” in which successful local girl Lacy Green follows their footsteps to Music City, albeit over two decades later, in pursuit of that elusive dream. And yet another is the “homecoming,” in which many of the friends and fans who have followed the Carters’ career over the past 35 plus years, who followed them from roadhouse to bar room to juke joint, will get to see them on a big stage and reminisce about “knowing them when.”
XXBut what might not be so obvious except to those friends who know the players somewhat intimately is that this show underneath the Mendenhall Transportation Terminal marks more than a trip across the state line for a gig. Much more. It is even more than a homecoming, although it will definitely be that. What it represents to both the Carters, Lacy, their respective families, and their bandmembers is a bridge to the past, a family and extended family reunion, a reconnection of spirit. It is, as the title to a song they’ve performed countless times implies, the unbroken circle.
XXPart of the beautiful symmetry of this show under the stars is that the band that will back up Lacy, the Last Resort, is the band that played with the Carters during their local heyday, and still gets together semi-regularly for reunion shows. Johnny Green on vocals and guitar, Mark Vernon on bass, and Norman Allred on drums, combined with Timmy on banjo and mandolin, and Danny on vocals and lead guitar, were easily the hottest country rock band ever produced in the Triad. They ruled the club circuit for 15 years, toured internationally, cut two albums and earned the respect of peers and adoration of fans. Even after the brothers made the big move that every big fish in a small pond must someday consider, they all remained close friends.
XXNow, fast forward to 2009 and recent UNC grad Lacy Green makes the decision to pursue a career in music. Her father happens to be Johnny Green — the aforementioned Johnny Green — who, when asked to form a band around his daughter, turns to his old mates Mark and Norman. Sweetening the pot further, he recruits none other than Sammy Shelor, of Lonesome River Band fame, who is not only one of the best banjoists in the business but also a monster guitarist.
XXTo illustrate the history, last Friday Timmy Carter said, “Gosh, I remember holding Lacy in my arms when she was like two weeks old. I’ve literally watched her grow up, from this little kid who’d follow us around and sing along with us, to a legitimate artist with a future. It’s amazing to think about it.”
XXTimmy also recalled playing a show with Lacy a decade ago, a five-song EP release party at J. Butler’s in High Point.
XX“We could tell, even at 13, that she was developing the voice to do it,” he said. “You never know what path a kid at that age will pursue, but we knew, being Johnny’s daughter, that she had the voice and had the maturity to do it if that’s what she chose.”
XXThe Carters not only make their home a few miles outside of Nashville, in Ridgetop, in 2008 they built their own studio there, calling it The TreeHouse. Some of the biggest stars in Nashville have recorded there, including Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Tim O’Brien, Sam Bush, Vassar Clements, Alison Brown, Curly Seckler, Carl Jackson and dozens of others.
XXNaturally, they also record their own material there, much of it written by Danny. Their latest release, The Road to Roosky, has been submitted by their label, Compass Records, for consideration as a Grammy nominee for Best Americana Album. They also recorded an album with Barney McKenna, founder of the legendary Irish group, the Dubliners, but he has since passed away and its release was held up.
XX“That one is going to do real well internationally,” said Timmy. “It was a real honor getting to know and record with Barney. He’s quite a legendary figure in Ireland.”
XXThe brothers regularly tour Ireland, Key West, the Northeast and are planning a West Coast tour, with intermittent stops in North Carolina. But this trip back home is clearly special to them.
XX“We were happy when we found out this was a United Way fundraiser,” said Timmy. “Our father did quite a bit of work with them and was a big supporter,” adding, “We just built a guest room at the TreeHouse so our mom could come stay with us for extended periods, and she’ll be there, too. It’s going to be great seeing a lot of old friends.”
XXThe Carters will be playing with their Nashville band, but Timmy revealed that the two bands will join forces to close out the show with a huge jam.
XX“Now, that’s going to be fun,” he smiled. “Danny and I are really excited about getting everybody together for this one.”
XXTickets are $15 to the Carters Brothers/Lacy Green concert. Food and beverages will be available but bring your lawn chairs and blankets. For tickets or further info, call the box office at 336-887-3001 or online at - Jamestown News
