While fans nationwide may have come to know and love Laci Kaye Booth as a contestant on American Idol in 2019, the Nashville-by-way-of-Texas newcomer is reintroducing herself with a self-titled debut via BMLG Records. The 8-track set blends her raspy yet velvet alto with the echoes of her Country influences from Merle Haggard to The Chicks and Shania Twain.
“My whole life, I prayed, and I wished for this to happen. I prayed for it every night, and every time I’d blow out my candles on my birthday cake, I’d wish for it,” Laci says in a press statement. “In my heart of hearts, this is exactly what I always wanted.”
A season favorite on Season 17 of American Idol, her unique Country sound drew multiple record labels around town to the young artist. However, after meeting with Big Machine Label Group’s Scott Borchetta and Jimmy Harnen, the singer chose to work with them alongside 19 Recordings and producer Dann Huff.
Nathan Chapman, James Slater, Charles Kelley (Lady A), Sam Ellis, Laura Veltz, Jimmy Robbins, Liz Rose, are some of the songwriters who chose to work with Laci, who co-wrote every track on this collection.
