Wed, 20 May 2015 11:41:32
She's a country cutie! Hear Olivia's song "You Part 2."
Today's Take Aim opponent is country cutie pie Olivia Lane. She is more like Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott than she is like Taylor Swift, in terms of her country style and sound, but she is equally as adorbs. Lane has such a unique, rich tone to her voice. It's assertive, not girly or vulnerable, at least not in "You Part 2," her rad single, which you will be able to rock below.
Plus, you will soon find out that Lane, Olivia is quite handy around the house.

… A teacher of some sort. Maybe a Zumba fitness teacher. Or a kindergarten teacher!
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
I love watching HGTV and have really gotten into remodeling my house. I just finished back splashing my kitchen and now going to tile my fireplace! I like building and remodeling things.
Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
Writing my song 'Mama Raised Hell' was one of the more emotional writes I've had. I had this idea for six months and I kept pitching it at writes and no one was biting. Finally, I got together with one of my favorites humans and songwriters Roxie Dean and she loved the idea. I cried after we worktaped the song. Not only because I thought we had something special, but because it was the first time I felt like my voice as a songwriter and artist was so clearly coming through in a song and to find writers who trust your ideas and your thoughts is such a special thing. We got emotional together haha! 'Mama' is a special song to me for more than one reason.
Finish this sentence: Olivia Lane is the artist that…
…wants to put a smile on people's faces and remind everyone it's okay to be human.
