Bundy video debuts

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 – Laura Bell Bundy released a video today for "I Am What I Am," the first single from her upcoming "Another Piece of Me" (Big Machine), coming out June 9.

Director Becky Fluke shot the video in Switzerland. From biking on an abandoned road to singing on mountaintops, Bundy enlisted others to do the same.

"There is not another place in nature I feel more connected to my higher source than in the mountains so when I found out I'd be performing at the Gstaad Country Music Festival - in the midst of the Alps and the same setting as my favorite film The Sound of Music - I was stoked," said Bundy. "Filming in the same place Maria Von Trapp sang seemed like the perfect place to tell that story, a story about being okay with being yourself and feeling free."

"I want to send the message that being who you are is not only a beautiful courageous thing, it's a necessary thing."

Bell is better known as an actress, having been in "Hart of Dixie" and "Anger Management" on TV and "Legally Blonde" and "Wicked" on Broadway.

CD reviews for Laura Bell Bundy

Another Piece of Me CD review - Another Piece of Me
It's been five years since Laura Bell Bundy's last album, "Achin' and Shakin'." Her latest, "Another Piece of Me," was finished two years ago. But after a spat with Universal, she signed with Big Machine to get this one out. LBB seems determined to make up for the lost time. She comes out swinging on the first two tracks with the rocking opener, "Love Me Like A Lady" followed by a sassy, hip hop duet with Colt Ford ("Two Step"). »»»
Achin' and Shakin' CD review - Achin' and Shakin'
Back in the '70s, country entertainers really lived up to the name. Multi-threat artists like Dolly Parton and Barbara Mandrell used variety show platforms where they could sing, dance and generally goof around. Laura Bell Bundy wants to know where those folks went, and is officially applying for the job. Fresh from stints on a soap opera and Broadway (as the lead in Legally Blonde), this Kentucky girl has put together a dozen songs with the aim to do it all. She wants to make you cry in the »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Old, new, it's all good for Platt & The Honeycutters – Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters were not mounting the stage with anything particularly new to push.

In a well-delivered 85-minute set, Platt and The Honeycutters turned that ancient... »»»
