NASHVILLE, TN (June 17, 2015) – Saturday afternoon (6/13) was a momentous occasion for Olivia Lane who hosted the second annual “Diva Jam”
at The Listening Room Cafe in Nashville, TN. The three-hour event, with
a wall-to-wall audience, featured performances by Nashville’s top
emerging female artists including: Olivia Lane, Annie Bosko, April Kry, Hannah Blaylock, Mary Sarah, Minnie Murphy, Rae Solomon, Ruthie Collins, Sandra Lynn and SaraBeth.
“I started this event last year as a way to really showcase some of the
incredibly talented females in Country music,” said Olivia. “It was so
popular last year that we brought it back again this year. I couldn't
wait to bring all these beautiful voices together for a second year."
Fittingly, Olivia’s song “You Part 2” was the most-added single by a
female at Country radio last week (6/8). She co-wrote the feisty,
female-empowerment break-up song with producer/musician/songwriter Ilya
Toshinskiy and Danny Myrick (Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw). Recently, the
newcomer was selected as one of only five emerging Country acts for the
Top 25 Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star artists and she released the sassy, fun lyric video for “You Part 2.”
Previously opening for Wynonna Judd, Frankie Ballard and Randy Houser,
this summer the songstress can be seen performing throughout the country
including dates with Easton Corbin and RaeLynn. In the fall, Olivia
joins Trace Adkins, Neal McCoy, Joe Nichols, Charlie Worsham and many
others for the weeklong “Country Cruising” voyage departing from Miami,
FL, on October 23.
The talented singer is working on new music with producer/musician Ilya
Toshinskiy, and is writing with some of Nashville’s top tunesmiths
including Jim Beavers (Dierks Bentley, “Sideways” and Luke Bryan, “Drink
A Beer”) Catt Gravitt (Jake Owen, “Alone With You” and Jana Kramer,
“Why Ya Wanna”) and Danny Myrick (Jason Aldean, “She’s Country” and Tim
McGraw, “Truck Yeah”). Since releasing her debut single “Steal Me Away,”
Olivia has garnered national attention and was named in Country Weekly’s
2015’s Who’s New feature. The fresh-faced newcomer made the move to
Nashville, TN, over a year ago to pursue music, eagerly following in the
footsteps of her mother who was a Country singer. Ever since she can
remember, the 23-year-old has been immersed in the craft and tradition
of Country music and knew that Music City was where she would land after
graduating from USC with a focus in music, songwriting and acting.
