Tuesday afternoon, an overcast sky and I found myself walking up to Cain Production Studios to Meghan Linsey‘s album release party. Guests were welcomed by Linsey’s lovely mother as they stepped into the studio waiting to hear what The Voice runner up had delivered in her new project. The intimate group mingled and shortly gathered round as Linsey took the stage with Tyler Cain to showcase a few songs off the new album. Starting with title track, “Bold Like A Lion” Linsey displayed that raw soulful voice that many have come to love. This fearless songstress proves she has no fear as she mentioned later this is her 13th year in Music City and continues to push boundaries to pursue her dream.

The session continued as Linsey performed “Lover“, “Hearts Against The Wall” and “Say It To My Face“. Say It To My Face, a duet written with Aloe Blacc is a tongue and cheek approach to addressing all the internet trolls. After Linsey performed a few of her latest, everyone turned to the screen to get a preview of the “Mr. Homewrecker” music video. The song, Linsey, revealed was inspired while a roommate of hers was dealing with a divorce after her husband cheated on her with a stripper. The music video is sure to strike a chord with viewers through the lyrics and display of emotion and heartbreak.

After the release party ended I got to have a few words with Linsey, the strong woman who has spent over a decade chasing down her dream in Nashville, continues to inspire to stay strong and never give up. In a world full of so much darkness, Meghan hopes anyone who listens to the CD walks away with a message of power and boldness.

I am a country music loving asphalt cowgirl with a passion for helping kids with cancer. I was born and raised in Orlando, FL where I currently reside. Although I was born and raised in the city don’t let that fool you. If you run into me, there’s no doubt you will find me wearing one of my many pairs of cowboy boots! There’s really not a time I can recall as a child where I wasn’t jammin’ out to country on the radio with my mom and two sisters in the car. Country music has always been a strong part of my life; recalling when I was 5, I sat on Santa’s lap and all I asked for was an Alan Jackson CD. Who knew a year later I would attend my very first concert to see Mr. Jackson. When not submerged in country music, I am a professional photographer, social media junkie, and most importantly spend my time devoted to my involvement with children with cancer. My passion started when a family friend was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the tender age of 12. What began with putting together some material, making her a blanket and wanting to get involved, turned into making blankets through her organization for her friends and other kids at a local hospital. One day I picked up a crochet book and decided to add crochet hats to the packages. Pairing that decision with my passion to help eventually turned into my own organization, “Unraveled by Samantha Dawn”. Word started to spread about what I was doing and parents began contacting me to crochet hats and wigs for their own child suffering from cancer. From 2012 to 2016, I’ve crocheted almost 200 hats and wigs, and just added dolls in the last year that have shipped to kids all over the United States, England, Holland, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil and Canada. I have been fortunate enough to meet a number of the kids and their families here in Orlando, in Nashville and along road trips to North Carolina. Jesus has blessed me with this opportunity and I am forever thankful for it. I look to Country Music for comfort, joy, and relaxation. It’s cool to be part of the very best fan base ever! I’m so lucky that my passion for these kids has effortlessly paired with my love for this genre and I hope one day to start a program to get these down to earth artists involved in more children’s hospitals around the US.
