Rising Country Music Star, Olivia Lane Sends A Message of Comfort with Latest Single “You Got Me”

You Got Me by Olivia LaneDynamic entertainer and one of Country music’s most promising young talents, Olivia Lane, is celebrating the release of new single, “You Got Me.” The Skip Black produced track was written by Olivia along with Aaron Scherz (Maddie & Tae) & Tim Nichols (Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson). Olivia explains,“the song wrote itself pretty quick. In the writing room, we talked about how we all have gone through or have had someone in our lives go through darker times and sometimes hearing someone say they’re there for you and have your back can be so powerful.”

HollywoodLife offered fans a sneak peak at the single and accompanying music video via a world premiere. The leading celebrity and entertainment site has dubbed Olivia a “one to watch” and goes on to explain: “Olivia Lane is just getting started, but she’s already penning the kind of songs that can’t be ignored… and is ready to take her career to the next level!”

The music video was directed by Matt DeLisi and shot in various locations around Nashville. Olivia goes on to explain: “I wanted the video to represent the sentiment of the song which is letting someone know you are there for them. These are two friends who may or may not be more, but regardless of the status of their relationship, it’s clear they have a solid foundation on having each other’s back.”

The long anticipated new material will be a reflection of her growth as not only an artist but a person. Olivia explains, “I wrote this song for anyone who wants to let someone know that they’re there for them. The universal message of this song perfectly describes where I’m at in my songwriting and the kind of artist I want to be. Since my last release of music, I’ve grown up, worked on some self love and ended up discovering this more vulnerable and emotional side of me that I’m ready to share with my fans.”

Recorded at Tonic Recording Studios in Pittsburgh, with engineer, Doug Kasper, Matt Westin’s debut album will be released in early 2018 on MTS Records.

Country singer/songwriter, Hannah May Allison grew up in Palo Alto, California, a town thirty miles south of San Francisco.

Hannah May’s laid back West Coast personality mixed with her southern roots makes her the definition of California country.

Now living in Nashville, Hannah recently graduated from the songwriting program at Belmont Uni-versity and is pursuing a full-time career in music.
