Lainey Edwards took the stage on Thursday May 21st at The Rutledge in Nashville to showcase her new CD titled “Lucky Girl”. Jody Williams of BMI introduced Lainey as one of the industry’s hottest new female acts to hit town.
Music row executives, family and a room packed with friends and fans listened as Lainey performed many of the songs from her album in which she co-wrote with some of Music City’s finest song writers. One of the songs performed “I Found A Good Man”, was precluded with a heartfelt and special thanks to her co-writers, Kent Blazy and Cory Batten. The lyrics encourage listeners to not rush, but wait to fall in love with the right person. Lainey also sang a powerful version of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” accompanied only with piano. Her astounding and soulful sound gave the song a new life and garnered an enthusiastic and loud applause from her guests.
Brett Beavers, another well known name in the music industry produced “Lucky Girl” and has said “She can write 'em.....and she can really sing 'em. I have been a huge fan of her smoky, soulful, powerful voice since the first recording I heard of her. I love the classiness of her style, her steady work ethic, and her sharp business sense.”
