Brand new track ‘Living Instead’ out today from Olivia Lane

Following her UK tour dates earlier in the year and recent appearances on BBC Scotland’s Quay Sessions, and Music Life on the BBC World Service along with Kane Brown & Holly Macve, Texas-born, Nashville-based independent artist Olivia Lane returns today with her new single ‘Living Instead’ which you can listen to HERE. Premiered on American Songwriter yesterday, the song is available to stream/download everywhere now.

Additionally, she has announced the launch of a brand new weekly podcast of the same name, starting this Monday (11/5) with “Peaceful Barb” Schmidt as her first guest – subscribe here.

Describing the single, Lane said:

This is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. The last few years I decided to dive into self awareness and self growth. I started going to therapy and did a lot of healing during that time. One day in particular I had a breakthrough where I realized how mean I was being to myself and I was done with it. I opened my phone and recorded the melody and words of the chorus. The idea felt so close to home and personal that I had to write it ASAP that week with my co-writers Skip Black and Lance Carpenter. They got the idea right away. I think we all struggle with getting too much in our own heads. This song is very universal in a sense that I think we all struggle and strive for that inner peace in our heads, hearts and our lives. I’m not always good at it, but I try not to live in my head so much with the over-analyzing and overly critical part of me.

Hi, I’m Annette, I have been a huge country music fan since the early 90s those were the days we were lucky enough to have CMT in the UK. I enjoy nothing more than listening to country music whilst having a cold beer (or a moonshine) with friends. I try to as many gigs as I can here in the UK and in the USA; I think of Nashville as my second home and I am lucky to have made some amazing friends in Tennessee. Think Country is something I am very proud of, I just want to share my love and passion of all things country music related with you all.
