CD Reviews: Telluride, Steve Azar, and Lindsay Lawler
Source: Mark Roberts

Lindsay Lawler is a new up and coming singer/songwriter that shows some great potential on her self-titled 5 song EP Lindsay Lawler. Her voice is sultry, gritty, very unique and down-home country. From the first word she sings to the last word it is hard not to pay attention to the young artist. Not to mention the musical arrangements for each tune compliment the vocals in the best way possible. It is strong lyrically; production wise it is professional and the content is of each track is commercially viable for the market. This kind of voice is just the difference country music needs. ??Lindsay Lawler. Lindsay Lawler??1. Dirt On Her Dress (Lindsay Lawler/Monica Corriveau/Kevin Post)?2. Spin The Bottle (Lindsay Lawler/Chris Roberts)?3. I’ve Always Been A Rebel (Lindsay Lawler/Diana Draeger)?4. My Name Ain’t Baby (Lindsay Lawler/Chris Roberts)?5. Truckers and Rodeo Crowds (Lindsay Lawler/Chris Roberts/Greg Bieck)??The EP has a good flow and a rebellious tone that is prevalent through each song. ??Though it is hard to choose the gem of an EP, the two songs that stand out are the love lost ballad, “Spin The Bottle” and the in your face country tempo song “My Name Ain’t Baby”. The two songs show the versatility of Lindsay’s vocals between tempo and ballad tunes. Just like many love lost tunes “Spin The Bottle” is a song of feeling lonely and trying to let it all go and forget the past. “My Name Ain’t Baby” is the opposite. Keeping the attitude high and the idea of “I don’t need a man, and I’m not falling for the cliché tricks” it is in a category of the strong woman’s theme song. ??For More information on Lindsay please visit, www.myspace.com/lindsaylawler ??

"Rockin' Nashville and Talkin' Trucking"

When Lindsay Lawler takes the stage at the world-famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in Nashville, TN, the mostly tourist crowd gets exactly what they came to Nashville to see – hot country music that captures the heart and soul of hometown America. This is the people’s music, and the people love to hear Lindsay sing as she immediately captures the audience with her high-energy stage show and powerful singing voice.
Driver HEALTH came to Tootsie’s to see Lindsay’s show and talk to this dynamic rising country music star about her devotion to the American Trucker and her new affiliation with the Healthy Trucking Association of America (HTAA). Lindsay is one of many country music artists who have signed on to promote the HTAA and help improve the health of our nation’s professional drivers. But most of the other people at Tootsie’s didn’t come to interview Lindsay–they came to hear this 5-foot 3-inch ball of fire belt out her brand of hot country at this legendary live music venue, and by the time she finished her encore at the end of the night, the people knew that they got exactly what they came to see.
After an action-packed performance that included leaving the stage at one point to stroll across the top of the bar, Lindsay appropriately wrapped her show up with her original song, “Truckers and Rodeo Crowds.” After spending some quality time talking with her fans and signing autographs, Lindsay made it back to our table to sit down and answer a few questions for our readers.
Tell our readers a little about yourself,
Lindsay – where are you from originally?
I always call myself a Red River Girl. I was born in Oklahoma and raised in Dallas but I have family in both states. So basically, I spent my time between the two.

What were you like as a little girl? Did you start singing when you were young?

I was definitely NOT a shy child! I’ve always been a total ham. My family would constantly find me wandering off performing for strangers and I would jump up on stage any time possible. I grew up singing in school, church, community theater and local honky-tonks…anywhere I could possibly get some-one to look at me! Country, gospel and Broadway music are my roots and what I sang growing up. Then in college at the University of Oklahoma, I was music chair in my sorority and lead singer for a rock band. I believe that is what changed my life.

How did you settle into country music?

After college I moved to Los Angeles and fronted another rock band and got to perform at the Viper Room, Whisky A Go-Go and The Roxy. It was a great experience, but after being in L.A. for a few years, I saw a void of passion in my music and desperately wanted to return to my country roots. On a whim, I packed my bags and moved to Nashville to pursue my true dream, which I am now living! I perform three days a week here at the famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in downtown Nashville, which is incredible. I love country music more than anything. I love the stories it tells, I love the longevity you can have with it and I love the values it instills.

Tell us about your popular song ‘Truckers and Rodeo Crowds’

My father and a lot of family friends work in the trucking industry, so trucking has always been a part of my life. I found out I would be playing at various trucking conventions in the future and wanted to write a song that would be a fun anthem for these shows. So one day at a writing session that started out with a love song, I scrapped the ballad halfway through and proclaimed, “I need a fun trucking song for my peeps!” and so “Truckers and Rodeo Crowds” was born. It basically speaks of my upbringing in Dallas surrounded by country club goers and socialites, and me?always wanting to break free from the mold and explore the country! I’ve met some amazing people, including a lot of truck drivers passing through town, many of whom I have stayed in touch with! In fact, one driver just got engaged and asked me to sing at his wedding! I love my truckers and I’ve never met a trucker I didn’t think would be fun to hang out with, so this song is for them!

Tell us about your new CD

I finished my self-titled EP in July featuring five original songs, all of which I co-wrote. It’s got a rocking country feel, and I’m very proud of it. I am blessed to be able to work with some of the most talented songwriters and musicians in Nashville who made my project come to life. Since then, I have written a bunch of new material that I will be recording soon, and I?plan on having the full record completed this spring. (You can currently hear the EP online at lindsaylawler.com.)

Why do you feel it’s important to support the Healthy Trucking Association of America?

The Healthy Trucking Association of America is such an important cause, and I am thrilled to take part in promoting it and working alongside. Without the trucking industry our economy and way of life would plummet, so keeping our hard-working truckers healthy is crucial. They sacrifice so much being away from their homes and families, so I’m inspired to help promote a healthier, happier way of life for them.

Tell us about the Trucker’s Blog you’re writing for the HTAA Web site

I was inspired to start a Trucker’s Blog after meeting two truckers stuck in Nashville over-night on New Year’s Eve. They couldn’t make it back to their families that night, so they had to spend New Year’s in Nashville. I spoke with one of them about his girlfriend back home and convinced him life was too short and he needed to go home and propose! Sure enough, he called me two weeks later and said that he popped the question! I love these kinds of stories and connecting with people, as it must get lonely sometimes on the road. I look forward to starting a blog to stay in touch and highlight a trucker of the month!

Would you like to tell us about any new material for future release?

I just finished a song called “High-Tech Redneck” that makes me laugh. It fits great with the constant evolution of technology in every industry, and can very easily translate to the trucking industry. And for the record, I call myself a redneck in many ways, so I mean this as a compliment to all my fellow all-American rednecks! I also have a new duet with another Nashville artist, a great mid-tempo song called “Cowgirl Fairytale” and some super-fun new rocking country songs. It will be a CD in which each song is very different, and I love that.

You have a lot of fans out there who are truck drivers. Is there anything you’d like to say to them?

I salute all of the hard-working men and women who spend so much of their life on the road. I have become attached to the industry and have loved hearing their stories from the road, and more importantly hearing that they listen to my music on their long hauls! I thank you all so much for the support and hope to continue to write music that inspires you and keeps you truckin’! - Driver Health

Thursday, January 7, 2010
Lindsay Lawler won me over in the first few seconds of being in the room with her. There was a warm and embracing personality that immediately draws you to her and her excitement about her music fills the room.??Ms. Lawler began performing very young throughout the South, although not always in the country genre. Her career began in the church not so different than many young singers; but found herself front and center of a rock and roll band that recorded and toured the Southwest. After graduation, Lawler packed up and moved out West to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of being on stage. Quickly she joined the band Ciattic as the lead singer and packed houses all along the Sunset Strip. Lawler never ceased to amaze audiences with her powerful vocals and stellar stage presence at the likes of the famous Whisky-A-Go-Go, Viper Room and The Roxy.??The young and charismatic singer / songwriter is currently living in Nashville, TN and writing with some of Nashville’s most prominent writers, recording, and performing full-time. She can be seen on stage at the famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Broadway weekly. We enjoyed taking time to visit about what brought her to Nashville and what her dreams are.???Bev: Lindsey what a pleasure it is to meet with you and talk about your current project. What are you doing right now? Recording, promoting???LL: I play downtown at Tootsies and I travel to out of town shows a lot; I’m starting to book the upcoming year. I want to stay busy on the road next year promoting the record. I recently did a show in Minnesota where stations are totally picking us up. Right as we are pulling into town my song came on the radio and that to me is just fun. The people who showed up to the shows were requesting music and knowing the words and that’s nice to see.??Bev: What’s your initial reaction when you hear your songs on the radio???LL: I have to admit, it’s so cool! I worked in radio for a long time before I did music full-time, but I was also a singer. The stations I worked at would always put my music on. I think that was the first time I had been driving down the road and it randomly came on and my name came up on the little dial thing, right after “Beer in Mexico” by Kenny Chesney. That was a nice segue. It’s really cool. It’s so refreshing to go out and do your own stuff. It seemed like people were responding more to the original stuff, even though we did some covers as well.??Bev: Are you currently writing your own songs???LL: I have co-written everything on the record that is coming out. I’ve recorded other people’s stuff in the past, but of course with your own music you want to cut it. When it starts out with just a guitar and vocal, to get in the studio and watch all the pieces come together is really an amazing process. I am starting to work with more writers around town and have some songs that are starting to being looked at. There are people putting songs on a hold which is also bittersweet. I have one song I just love that someone is looking at cutting; it’s bittersweet because it has potential to be huge, but at the same time it’s gut-wrenching because I love that song!??Bev: It doesn’t mean you can’t record it as well…??LL: Exactly!??Bev: Do you have preference? If you had to choose would you rather write or sing???LL: Perform. It honestly is my biggest thing. I love writing. I love it all, it’s a catch 22, because writers can have the perks of the business, but can have their own lives as well. My strength is entertaining and putting on a show, running around on stage and that’s what I really thrive on. I love going out and meeting people on the road at shows and even down town. Being able to meet people and create a fan base in Nashville has been wonderful, because you can accomplish it without ever leaving lower Broadway. We get people from all over the world. As difficult as life is on the road, it’s what I want to do.??Bev: What’s the biggest venue or stage you have performed on???LL: Considering I am just now back to doing it full-time and being 100% artist, but in a different music genre because I played all over L.A. and we played Whiskey, Roxy and Viper. In Dallas, where I am from, I played Billy Bob’s when I was younger, much younger.??Bev: Are you currently the opening act for established artists???LL: Not yet. It is all on me right now which is a little more difficult, but its fun.??Bev: What are you doing promotion wise to get your name out there???LL: I am currently doing radio promotions. I’ve gotten a great radio response out of Tennessee, New Jersey, Texas and Minnesota. I’ve been doing a lot of radio interviews, newspaper and such. I potentially have a corporate endorsement coming up which would be lovely. I’ve really been using Tootsies and the Broadway opportunities and really staying in touch with everyone I meet. I like having one main person per state; like this one woman back in Minnesota, she randomly heard me one night at Tootsie’s while she was in town. I started talking to her and she went back to Minnesota. Now she has gotten all this press around there for me and she’s the one who has potentially found this corporate sponsorship for me, and it’s just gone on fire. I looked at that and said that’s what I need to do. So I try to connect with different people around town and from different states. I pay them when they book shows they get free merchandise, can come to the shows for free and they are excited to get involved. It is great, because you go into these small towns and they are actually really excited and you can stand out. The whole town came out to my show the other night, probably because it was the only thing to do, but still whatever gets them there. The woman I know up there said the week before she was getting her teeth cleaned and the dental hygienist was like “did you hear about the girl coming to town from Nashville? I hear she’s like the next Kellie Pickler.” That made me realize those are the people who care, that’s how you build a fan base. They care and they appreciate it, they buy CD’s and merchandise.??Bev: Have you had any bizarre things happen while being an artist???LL: No, Luckily I have really nice fans. Nice, normal fans so far. I have people I have met (I hate the word fans by the way it sounds bizarre), but people are great about spreading the word. I have had people show up with stuff they have found from bands when I was in college. I don’t even know where that is. People will show up with old music and old pictures, so that’s a little bizarre. If you saw the front of my CD it looks like I’m about to get run over by a semi; one of my investors in my record is the insurance carrier for the major trucking companies across the country. He is booking me for a lot of their big trucking conventions. Truckers and bikers have been my people so far and now farmers up in Minnesota.??Bev: In my opinion this is a good audience, because they listen to music all day while they work.??LL: Exactly, which is why we wrote a song called Truckers and Rodeo crowds. That’s actually the song they were playing up in Minnesota. I’m going to start doing that and hopefully they’ll start carrying it with some of their products. Like you said, thinking outside of the box.??Bev: Besides things from your past, what is the weirdest thing people have brought up for you to sign???LL: Mainly just old music and old flyers from my band that people have shown up with. I was in a band in college and my drummer always made flyers for our shows; the most bizarre flyers. This one guy had come to one of my shows and he had had one of those flyers, we’re really not sure how he got it and he wouldn’t say. So that was weird. I did sign some chests in Minnesota and I always think it’s so weird why people ask for that. I’ve never understood autographs in general; pictures I understand but autographs? Maybe if it’s on your picture, but not on your body.?Ohhh I do have one weird thing; the “little fisherman’s friends”. I had this one guy come in the other night when I was singing in Nashville and I was eating on stage. I had to spit it out real quick because the song was starting and he’s like “do you mind if I take that?” I was like uhhh ok I guess? That was odd, it was a little weird.??Bev: With that, let’s move one. (chuckling) What has been the song so far that means the most to you or is the most personal to you???LL: The song that I am most proud of so far is called “Spin The Bottle”, I wrote it with Chris Roberts. He is in the band One Flew South and is my main co-writer. It was the first song he and I wrote and it came so quick. It’s a lonely person’s song. I wrote it because of this one woman who stood out at the bar one night when I was playing. The lyrics are “am I going to go home alone tonight? its closing time, am I going to go home alone or am I going to go home with this person next to me; to not have to be alone.” It is a really sad song but it is the one a lot of people come up to me and say they can really relate to it. There was a man that came up to me and told me he was a recovering alcoholic, he said “I’m in AA and this song could really be our theme song”. I hadn’t thought about it that way but it’s true. He said he played it for everyone at his AA meeting and everyone was crying. It struck a chord and that made me feel like I can do this as a career. It was the first time I felt like a writer. Because when I lived in L.A, I did more pop/rock. I started out singing country and gospel and in L.A. and fell into rock and pop because that’s more of what goes on there. I never really felt fulfilled with it. It doesn’t have the story telling that country music has. I wrote another with Wade Paddle called “I Don’t Anymore”. It’s really depressing, but it’s a great song.??Bev: The comment you made about the alcoholic, or the guy who was recovering; how does it make you feel when you have written a song or recorded a song and now is perceived with a different intention by the listener, now all of a sudden it means something entirely different to somebody else.??LL: Initially, people say I like your music; that’s great and exciting. I never can relate to everyone’s personal experiences, so it broadens your thinking as you write.?It has helped me not rush songs too. Experiences like the man from AA help me think different. This is my job; this isn’t a hobby. This is something that is affecting other people and I really need to take it seriously. That experience was so satisfying, I’ll never forget what he looked like when he said that.??Bev: During your career, both in the country genre and before, who are some of the bigger names you have performed with???LL: I’ve gotten to sing with Kid Rock a couple times, one night at Tootsie’s I opened (quote un-quote) for Kenny Chesney, Kid Rock and the Whalers. I got to share the stage with them and then Kid Rock once while out in L.A. as well. Those are some of the bigger names as far as country. I’ve played with. I would love love love, to do something with Sugarland. I love Jennifer Nettles. Everyone always asks me if I could do a duet with anyone who would it be and I would love to do something with her.??Bev: Whether you’ve performed with them or not, is there anyone that has passed down some words of wisdom that has really hit home, that you could relate to???LL: Wade Battle said “when your picking songs for an album, get three songs, that if you put this CD on you could undeniably say this is me.” That’s my current struggle in life --- figuring out exactly who in the world am I??I’ve learned to tune people out no matter what, because even on my level, everyone has their comments and wants to tell you how to do things a certain way. I’ve really had to refocus and do it my way. I’m trying to find a happy medium and take their advice while still keeping true to myself and that’s my inner struggle.??Bev: Do you have anything you do before you go on stage, any prayers? A routine???LL: I always pray. I eat potato chips and have a shot of Jim Beam. That’s really healthy! That’s my thing. Jim Beam and potato chips and I think I have poker face on there. It’s God, prayer, whiskey and potato chips. Weird combination.??Bev: Are any members of your family here???LL: My immediate family is all in Dallas. My parents, my sister and her husband are all in Dallas and my grandmother and great aunt who are the funniest, most amazing, 92 year-old identical twins. They’re so funny, still dress alike, same hair cut, same thing, their little jumpsuits monogrammed, They’re so supportive, so excited, love what I’m doing. They’re always listening to new artists so they can tell me what’s going on! They’re a hoot! All my extended family is in Oklahoma. There’s no way I could be doing what I’m doing today without my family. They’ve been so, so super supportive. Both emotionally, financially, everything; on every level.??Bev: Have any of your family members been involved in music at all???LL: My father kind of dabbled a little bit in everything. He played saxophone in a band for a long time, he plays piano, guitar and a little bit of everything. He is an attorney and he did some work for Leann Rimes a little while ago and also Neal McCoy. My grandmother and great uncle both played piano and had a lot of musical talent and I grew up singing with them. My sister went to Vanderbilt in Nashville and worked for MCA; then did marketing for Pizza Hut for 12 years. She has been great at helping me on the marketing front. My mom has been helping me with merchandising.??Bev: I was going to ask if they get to travel a long and do those things with you, as many artists do tend to lean on family members in that way.??LL: They haven’t been traveling yet, but they’ve been doing a lot of behind the scenes stuff. I just had a showcase back in August and they all were here in town. They set up all the food and drink, and ran everything. My mom had a banner made; they’re amazing and all so super supportive. I’m really blessed in that capacity. I look at so many people here that I know that don’t have that support. I took it for granted for a long time, it really annoyed me how involved they were. I didn’t realize until recently how great I have it. I literally thank God for that. For whatever reason, all these people that are falling into my little camp, have all just started because they want to help and started doing it on their own out of their own generosity. I am so lucky to have these amazing people who want to see me succeed and believe in me.??Bev: Lindsay, I have all the confidence in the world you are well on your way to seeing all your dreams come true, you have such an amazing personality and positive outlook. Thank you so much for your time and sharing a part of who you are with me.??Lindsay: Oh the pleasure was mine, thank you for being interested in my music and helping me get the word out. I cannot wait to do it again.??For more information on Lindsay Lawler visit http://www.myspace.com/lindsaylawler??TRANSCRIBED BY: JENNIFER KARDELL

"Lawler Lays Down The Law"

The truly original showcase introduction was a welcome surprise when Tiffany, yes, “the” Tiffany, took the stage to introduce her talented friend at Nashville’s 12th and Porter. She went on to talk about an artist’s relentless passion to perform anytime and anywhere, well exemplified when the lights went down as Primo, the club’s primo sound engineer, played a recording. It was a short audio clip of this superstar (who once gave Debbie Gibson a run for her money) singing at the age of three. That’s how to intro an artist in her showcase.
In a multi-colored flood of lights, Lindsay Lawler blazed onto the famous stage like a pony that had just been let out of its stall. It only took seconds for the electrified artist to get and then keep our attention. The more we heard, the more we wanted to hear from this Sooner-born singer who didn’t sound like anyone but herself.
Just by the design of her logo, we knew in advance that this would probably be no ordinary performer. With a group of musicians well-versed in the fusion of country and rock, Lindsay’s passionate vocals were accented throughout by her equally zealous stage presence. Setting her apart from others, her dance moves created a moving illustration on the stage, not just the usual rocking to the beat but focused arm and hand movements completing the picture, much like a figure skater’s motions that were seasoned with a smidge of the Jagger hip swing. It could be no surprise to learn that this performer has opened for Kid Rock, played Sunset Strip’s Viper Room and enjoyed being a nationally syndicated radio personality on Kidd Kraddick in the Morning.
As this Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge crowd favorite began with “I’ve Always Been a Rebel”, we could easily connect the delivery with the image portrayed on her new CD as she poses at the grill of a semi. In a black fringed mini and the highest of heels, she ran through “My Name Ain’t Baby”, meaning just what it says, “Spin the Bottle” and the up-tempo “Truckers and Rodeo Crowds”. “Dirt on her Dress” was as country as can be in this fiery set of songs that were all co-written by Lindsay, recorded at Villa Sound and mixed at the celebrated Sound Stage Studio. She saved a surprise for the end then she blew it all out with a song she had written for Whitesnake (must have been before she was born). We recognized the opening chords instantly for “Here I Go Again”.
A performance you shouldn’t miss, a site you must visit and listen up, a CD you’ll have to have, and a career you’ll want to watch - that would be Lindsay Lawler. Speaking for a good part of Nashville, we think we’ll keep her.

Nashville Country Club: Lindsay Lawler

Lindsay Lawler
Tuesday, September 1, 2009 at 3:08pm


In her own right, Lindsay has accomplished more than what most indie artists can dream. After creating a popular music reputation out in the LA area, Lindsay made listeners take notice of her edgy appeal & power-house vocals. Since breaking into the industry isn't easy, natural talent most of the time isn't heard by the right people. With that noted Lindsay was not waivered by competing with the other acts & caught the interest of local TV channel: the WB.

Her musical successes allowed her to choose Country as her preferred genre, which lead her to move to the Nashville area. Lindsay's showcase at 12th & Porter brought a sizeable crowd to watch the petite songstress belt out tunes, including 80's rock-band covers. Even though music is her first passion, Lindsay has also landed gigs such as participating in the radio show: Kidd Kraddick in the Morning, which is syndicated in 80 markets. It's no wonder Lindsay has the savvy-ness to be heard in the music industry for the right reasons.

"Up and Coming New Nashville"

Lindsay Lawler is no stranger to the music scene as she has been performing all over the country from a young age. Lawler was born in Oklahoma and raised in Texas. She began singing in the church and at various country venues throughout the South. While attending the University of Oklahoma, she fronted a rock and roll band that recorded and toured the Southwest. After graduation Lawler packed up and moved out West to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of being on stage. Quickly she joined the band Ciattic that she fronted for packed houses all along the Sunset Strip. Lawler never ceased to amaze audiences with her powerful vocals and stellar stage presence at the likes of the famous Whisky-A-Go-Go, Viper Room and The Roxy. In addition, her band recorded a full-length album and toured subsequently. Lindsay Lawler was then discovered in LA by producers Marshall and London Jones (Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, Marcos Hernandez). She recorded several songs for them, one of which received airplay across the country and another that was sought after by the WB. It was shortly after that Lawler saw a void of passion in her music and quickly decided to return to her roots. She has since relocated to Nashville, TN and is currently writing, recording, and performing downtown. She currently can be seen on stage at the famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Broadway. Lawler’s true charisma is personified in front of a crowd…it is a live performance you won’t want to miss! In addition to her music, Lindsay Lawler is known to many for her radio personality. She has been featured for several years on the nationally syndicated Kidd Kraddick in the Morning show based out of Dallas and broadcast to almost 70 markets. The show continues to support Lindsay and has featured several of her tracks. An exceptionally strong live performer, Lindsay Lawler exudes classic charisma & sensuality on the big stage, captivating audiences of all demographics. Expect to see big things from this performer in the coming years. That Nashville Sound had an opportunity to sit down with the lovely Miss Lawler for an interview about her career in music... You can listen to her HERE.

That Nashville Sound- What brought you to Nashville?

Lindsey Lawler- I came to Nashville in 2007. I was living in Los Angeles at the time and was brought here by a manager and producer to cut a demo. I have since parted ways with that group, but feel blessed it happen as it got me here and back to my country music roots which I am now heavily pursuing.

TNS- Looking over your career thus far, what do you rank as a couple of the highlights?

LL- I currently sing at Tootsie's in downtown Nashville which has led me to meet so many wonderful, interesting people. It has become such a big part of my Nashville experience. I have also gotten the chance to play at the likes of Whisky-A-Go Go and Viper Room in Los Angeles, as well as sing alongside several big name performers. I am currently writing and working with some great writers in Nashville and looking forward to recording a new EP this spring, which we will be showcasing this summer. It's an exciting time!

TNS- What might people be surprised to find out about you?

LL- I would say one of the most surprising things that people tell me is that they are shocked when they hear such a big voice coming out of such a little person. I always love hearing that!

TNS-What kind of music are you listening to? What's in your iPod?

LL- I love Miranda Lambert (and she's a fellow Texan!!). I'm also a huge Sugarland, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban fan as far as country goes, so they're all in the ole ipod. Outside of country, I'm also a big fan of Pink, but also have Billy Joel and the Black Crows in my CD changer today.

TNS- If you had a crystal ball and looked forward ten years, what do you see for yourself?LL- I see myself in 10 years still living in Nashville and still making music. Definitely writing much more as the years go by as well, both for myself and others. I have really started to connect with that aspect of the business as there's nothing better in the world than watching one of your songs come together. I plan being around in country music for a long time to come. It's such a great genre due to it's longevity that other formats don't necessarily give all artists. Come see me at Tootsie's!

Bio

Lindsay Lawler is no stranger to the music scene as she has been performing all over the country from a young age. A “Texahoman,” Lawler was born in Oklahoma and raised in Texas. She began singing in the church and at various country venues throughout the South. While attending the University of Oklahoma, she fronted a rock and roll band that recorded and toured the Southwest. After graduation Lawler packed up and moved out West to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of being on stage. Quickly she joined the band Ciattic that she fronted for packed houses all along the Sunset Strip. Lawler never ceased to amaze audiences with her powerful vocals and stellar stage presence at the likes of the famous Whisky-A-Go-Go, Viper Room and The Roxy. In addition, her band recorded a full-length album and toured subsequently.

Lindsay Lawler was then discovered in LA by producers Marshall and London Jones (Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, Marcos Hernandez). She recorded several songs for them, one of which received airplay across the country and another that was sought after by the WB. It was shortly after that Lawler saw a void of passion in her music and quickly decided to return to her country roots. She has since relocated to Nashville, TN and is currently writing with some of Nashville’s hottest songwriters and is set to release her debut solo album this summer. She was a featured performer for over 2 years at the famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Broadway in Nashville, TN and is currently preparing for a summer tour. Lawler has also recently become the face of the Healthy Trucking Association and will be appearing at conventions and events across the country this year. Lawler’s true charisma is personified in front of a crowd…it is a live performance you won’t want to miss!

In addition to her music, Lindsay Lawler is known to many for her radio personality. She has been featured for several years on the nationally syndicated Kidd Kraddick in the Morning show based out of Dallas and broadcast to almost 70 markets. The show continues to support Lindsay and has featured several of her tracks.

An exceptionally strong live performer, Lindsay Lawler exudes classic charisma & sensuality on the big stage, captivating audiences of all demographics. Expect to see big things from this performer in the coming years!
