Amanda Lynn Releases Album - 'Rocket'

Amanda Lynn’s New Album, Rocket, is a Journey Through Self-Discovery, Overcoming Negative Mindsets, and Following Your Truth and the Battle Within, Along With Some Fun Songs Thrown in For Good Measure! (Atlanta, GA)

Amanda Lynn's new album Rocket was recorded at House of Blues in Nashville, TN and at Dark Horse, in Franklin, TN. The album was produced by Grammy nominated Artist and Renowned Producer, Billy Smiley. The album came together after Billy reached out, wanting to learn more about Amanda after hearing some of her music online. He heard her passion for authenticity, and the desire for honest music, in her vocals, lyrics, melodies, and persona. After meeting a few times, Amanda and Billy began the journey to this totally unique sounding record.

In addition to having Grammy nominated producer Billy Smiley at the helm, the album features players from Kacey Musgraves, Sturgill Simpson, Keith Urban, Vince Gill, The Technicolors, and Amy Grant. Along with a new song written by Natalie Hemby, the album features song Amanda co-wrote with Billy Smiley.

About Amanda Lynn

Amanda Lynn was born in Cartersville, Georgia. And these were her early memories...

“I remember I would set up a stage in the back of my Dad’s Red 1980’s Chevrolet pickup. My audiences were my stuffed animals and baby dolls, all sorted carefully in lawn chairs to view the stage perfectly. I remember using a broom or a rake as a microphone. I would spend all day in my imagination”.

From this young age, Amanda knew she had the gift (or burden) of writing songs. “I always felt like I had something to say and I was on a mission that most people around me would never understand, but I had to do it. Nothing else could ever fulfill me...And as much as I ran from writing songs, they would always seem to hunt me down and find me."

Compared to a female version of Chris Stapleton with a dash of Dolly Parton, Tom Petty, and Sturgill Simpson; Amanda Lynn breaks the traditional mold with stories of her journey through the tiny towns of Southeast. With 2019 singles "Magnolia", "Criminals", and "Music City", Rocket, is sure to be her 2020 success story.
