Bundy shows "Another Piece"
Friday, May 15, 2015
– Laura Bell Bundy will have a second go round. Big Machine Label Group announced today her second album, "Another Piece of Me," is coming June 9.
Bundy co-wrote or co-produced more than half of the 15 songs, while collaborating with producers Nathan Chapman, Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and Tyler Cain.
Starting today, Bundy will reveal new content including photos, video, audio snippets and behind-the-song stories on social media. She has released a 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," Bundy said. "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."
Bundy has been known for her acting on television shows (Hart of Dixie and Anger Management most recently) and on Broadway (Legally Blonde and Wicked), where she garnered a Tony Award nomination. A songwriter since the age of 14, the Kentucky native released her major label debut, "Achin' and Shakin'" in 2010 on Mercury Nashville. She enjoyed modest play with the single "Giddy On Up," which reached 31 on Billboard.
Bundy will play the Belk Park Stage during CMA Music Festival in Nashville on Friday, June 12 from 4:05 - 4:30 p.m. She will perform new songs as well as "Two Step," which she performed while touring with Rascal Flatts.

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"). ...
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 ...
