Exclusive: Olivia Lane Talks the Inspiration Behind New Self-Titled EP

From the country-rich state of Texas, by way of Houston, comes effervescent singer/songwriter Olivia Lane, whose self-title EP drops today (July 29).

“The inspiration behind this EP is the life I’ve been living, going for my dreams in Nashville,” says Olivia. “Each one of these songs, I’ve poured my heart and my soul into. As soon as I put them out there in the world, they are everyone else’s songs, so I hope each fan takes the songs, internalizes them and is like, ‘This is what this song means to me,’ because that’s what music is about. The fact that some people show up [at my concerts] and already know some of the words to these songs, it’s so cool that people are relating to something that I’m going through and we’re all going through the same thing.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
