Fox411: Women Belong On Country Radio

Laura Bell Bundy is releasing her first studio album in five years on June 9, and the Broadway veteran and television actress told FOX411 Country she’s excited about her return to country music. Bundy also shared her thoughts on radio consultant Keith Hill’s controversial comments to take women off of country radio.

FOX411 Country: It’s been five years since you last released a record.
Laura Bell Bundy: It’s been way too long! It wasn’t up to me. I would be lying if I didn’t tell you that this record was pretty much in the can two years ago at least. I was signed at Universal…and when the new regime came, things kind of got pulled and new songs were added and things of that nature. And then eventually we decided to go our separate ways and I signed with Big Machine and we released two songs off of the record.

FOX411 Country: As a female artist, how do you feel about radio consultant Keith Hill saying, “If you want to make ratings in country radio, take females out?”
Bundy: That guy is not gonna get laid. That is my official word [laughs]. I do agree with that there should be more women. I’m the type of person who likes to hear women. I like to hear from our perspective. I like the tambour of a woman’s voice; I like the subject matter that women are speaking about. I think the thing that’s interesting is the women who do get through on the radio– like really get through– they go on to become divas. Those men don’t have those types of careers – they don’t make the impact that the five women getting played on the radio are going to make. Well it’s 20 men, but you’ve only got five women. Let’s look at the careers of them.

NASHVILLE, TN (May 15, 2015) – Known for her outgoing persona and array of talents, Laura Bell Bundy will release ANOTHER PIECE OF ME June 9 on Big Machine Records. The worldwide release across all digital retailers includes 15 tracks with LBB co-writing or co-producing more than half, while collaborating with producers Nathan Chapman, Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and Tyler Cain.

 

The effervescent entertainer will give fans an early preview – and surprisingly candid look – across her social media platforms. Beginning today, LBB will reveal new content including photos, video, audio snippets and behind-the-song stories. See a preview here. Pre-order ANOTHER PIECE OF ME on May 26 – with two full tracks made available leading up to the official release – and watch the brand new music video for “I Am What I Am.”

 

“Much of my career has involved playing characters that have been created for me but this album is something completely different and the most personal body of work I’ve ever done … it is the real me,” shared LBB. “I’m thrilled to show fans that we all have a spectrum of emotions throughout our lives. ‘Kentucky Dirty’ and ‘Two Step’ show my playfulness and humor to crank up for a random dance party. But ‘China and Wine’ and ‘Another Piece Of Me’ are more introspective, reflecting how I’ve dealt with the occasional sadness and messiness that life throws you. I hope everyone truly feels like they know ANOTHER PIECE OF ME after listening.”

 

With an infectious energy and wealth of dynamic skills, LBB sprung into the national spotlight with prominent roles on television shows (Hart of Dixie and Anger Management most recently) and on Broadway (Legally Blonde and Wicked, among others), where she garnered a Tony Award nomination. A songwriter since the age of 14, the Kentucky native effortlessly reveals her versatility with punchy melodies, playful lyrics showcasing both vulnerable and empowering themes.

 

LBB will take on the Belk Park Stage during CMA Music Festival in Nashville on Friday, June 12 from 4:05 – 4:30P. She will perform new songs as well as “Two Step,” which she performed while touring with Rascal Flatts. For tour dates and more, visit laurabellbundy.com.
