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: LSD tour provides a lot of highs – This was not your grandkids' country, that's for sure. Even the name of the tour - the LSD Tour - was a throwback (albeit far before the principals were making music). But make no mistake about it. With the ever cool country traditionalist Dwight Yoakam, the country with some rock and blues and rabble rousing of Steve Earle thrown in and the... »»»
Concert Review: Alvin, Gilmore fortunately get together – Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore had known each other for decades, but it wasn't until last year that they toured together in a guitar pull setting. What started as a small Texas tour mushroomed into points east and west and eventually the release earlier this month of their blues-based disc, "Downey to Lubbock." And now we have the... »»»

Bigger CD review - Bigger
Sugarland is back with "Bigger," its first studio album in nearly a decade. And its arrival says more about branding, than anything else. Although his voice is heard often enough on this album to make his presence felt, it's still difficult to get away from seeing Kristian Bush in the Oates to Hall or Ridgeley to Michael role in this duo.  »»»

Luke Combs has gotten a lot of life out of his album "This One's for You," which includes his breakthrough hit "Hurricane," as well as the popular single "When It Rains It Pours." This deluxe edition includes five new tracks, many of which are just as strong as the original 12.  »»»
Things Change CD review - Things Change
There may be no other CD title this year quite as apropos as this one. Things have indeed changed for American Aquarium since their previous studio album (2015's underrated "Wolves"). For one thing 80 per cent of the band quit, leaving only lead vocalist and songwriter BJ Barham. »»»
Dancing With The Beast CD review - Dancing With The Beast
Informed by the renewed strength of today's woman's movement, particularly in light of recent cultural social and political upheavals, Gretchen Peters' "Dancing With the Beast" finds her sharing stories about loss, struggle, upheaval, tragedy and turmoil in ways that resonate with a common bond, though told from a woman's perspective. »»»
Hard Times Are Relative CD review - Hard Times Are Relative
Jason Boland and The Stragglers serve up the ninth helping of their unapologetic, get it or not, country, in the past 20 years. This appears to almost be two EP's with the first mostly being a hard country dance cd and the second being a little more "out there" mix of fun and contemplative tunes, much less easy to categorize. »»»

After a four-year-break from recording, Duluth, Minn. sextet Trampled By Turtles return with its eighth studio release of edgy bluegrass and Indie folk/rock. Lead singer Dave Simonett wrote all of the mostly dark themed lyrics with the lone instrumental that showcases the band's topflight musicianship, "Good Land," credited to bandmate Erik Berry. »»»
