NASHVILLE, TENN. – Big Loud Records / Songs & Daughters artist-writer Lauren Watkins returns today with two new originals – “The Table” and “Fine County Line” – out now.
Previewing six-song set Introducing: The Heartbreak, due in full Nov. 17, Watkins sets “The Table,” showing off a new depth of songwriting capability and a continuation of the “thoughtful, insightful study of the human character” (Entertainment Focus) she captures with every track. On “Fine County Line,” Watkins leans into her Southern rock roots for a flirty, upbeat two-step about walking the line before a first kiss – too close for comfort, too tempting to pass up.
“I’m so proud of these songs and I can’t wait for people to get to know me better through them,” Watkins says. “I think ‘The Table’ shows a maturity in my writing that I haven’t really gotten to share yet, and ‘Fine County Line’ is the lighthearted, carefree girl that’s in there too. Two parts of me on the table today; a lot more on the way.”
On tour now with Austin Snell with dates supporting Conner Smith on the horizon, Watkins’ live show is garnering raves nationwide, with Top Shelf Music praising “her commanding stage presence and heartfelt lyrics (that) left an indelible mark” after a performance earlier this year. Her three-night hometown residency – the Heartbreak Supper Club – kicked off earlier this week at Nashville’s Springwater Supper Club to noteworthy reviews. Holler applauds: “While it should be a surprise that an artist still so early in her career has already landed some iteration of a residency, Watkins has spent 2023 making her bones and showing that she’s got what it takes.” Catch a show here.
