LYRX Won't Conform To Nashville's Standards of What It Means To Be A Woman In Country Music
LYRX won’t conform to Nashville’s standards of what it means to be a woman in country music. Often being compared to her brother Shay, of the duo Dan + Shay, LYRX reminds us that she has her own style in her debut single “Take The Money.” An upbeat song to tell the boys that girls can have fun on their own, “Take The Money” will have you dancing along. In fact, LYRX introduced a challenge on social media asking fans to recreate the dance featured in the official video for the chance to win a $1000.
Now recording with Grammy nominated producer Mark Needham, LYRX is ready to share her story. Understanding that songs are written from real-time experiences, LYRX writes songs on her own to reflect her personal views and emotions.
Always looking for ways to connect with her audience, LYRX will be hitting the road this summer on a radio tour. Preferring to interact with her audience, the tour will include meet and greets where fans have the opportunity to have a conversation with LYRX in addition to hearing her play.
Already with a radio single in the works and plans to release an EP in the coming year, you’ll want to follow LYRX on social media at @LYRXOfficial and on her website at www.lyrxofficial.com. Plus listen to “Take The Money” on all digital platforms here.

Celebrate International Women's Day with the Highly Anticipated Album from Maren Morris - GIRL
This International Women’s Day Maren Morris releases her highly anticipated sophomore album, GIRL. The album which Morris describes as “a one-woman rally cry of reassurance,” leads with her single GIRL. Coming from an honest place, Morris reflects on her own struggles being a female voice in a male-dominated industry. Addiotionally, the song is a reminder to herself and others to stand up against the haters and the programmers who refuse to play women on the radio.
Following the success of her pop collaboration “The Middle,” skeptics wonder if Morris will continue to dip her toe into the pop genre. However, Morris reassures us that GIRL is every bit as much a country album as her last.
GIRL includes fourteen tracks, including collaborations with Grammy winner Brandi Carlile and The Brothers Osborne. The album which shows a new side of Morris, plays to her flirty side. “The Feels” takes you back to the disco era, while “Good Women” portrays Morris as a bold and sexy wife to husband Ryan Hurd. In theme with the album’s title track, “Flavor” is the girl power anthem we were all promised. Including lyrics such as “I make my dough,” “won’t play the victim,” and “shut up and sing, well hell no I won’t,” Morris is the head chef ready to stir the pot.
To promote the album’s release, Morris is on tour with fellow women in country artists Cassadee Pope and RaeLynn. Selling out the majority of venues, before the album’s release we’re hopeful GIRL will prompt the attention women need in the music industry. Listen to GIRL here.

Today country singer-songwriter, J.Antonette has released her new single titled, “Something I Said." Written by J.Antonette and Ian Mchugh, this song is nothing short of radio quality. It was mixed by Nashville’s Grammy nominated engineer, Bobby Holland and was mastered by multi-gold & platinum engineer, Lucas Pimentel at FunAttic studios. The songs catchy production was provided by Stephan Hovsepian and Mike Avenaim.
“There’s something to be said about working with friends you are so comfortable with. I wrote the chorus while driving to the beach and called Ian immediately. We finished writing it in under 2 hours and “Something I Said” was born. I’d say I’m unapologetically comfortable confronting people who mistreat me. I have no issue, expressing how I feel and sometimes that provokes a reaction. I’m surly my father's daughter. Was it something I said? Was I a bit too honest for you? I think Mike and Stephan captured the emotion of this song perfectly with their production.”
J.Antonette got her start as a background singer for Melissa Etheridge. She has since performed as a background vocalist for Grammy winner Michael Bolton, Gary Douglas in support of South Side Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, and has opened for country star Jordan Davis. She has been featured on country radio such as Nash FM, Big Frog104 and many others.
“Something I said” is now available on all streaming and downloading platforms.
