This year for Labor Day weekend, this Canadian decided to spend some time in America at the Arts, Beats and Eats festival in Royal Oak, Michigan. The Sunday concert lineup on the Michigan Lottery stage featured three awesome country acts including Kip Moore, James Otto and the band I had the pleasure of meeting, Lucy Angel.
Kate, Lindsay and Emily Anderton are a mother/daughters country trio who have been making a name for themselves in Nashville for the past eight years. They created an entertaining experience for the Michigan crowd that afternoon and were more than happy to take photos and sign autographs for a few fans after their set which featured songs from their self-titled debut album. Produced by Noah Gordon and released in early 2015, Lucy Angel features 13 diverse tracks and I had the opportunity to ask the ladies what their favorites were.
While Kate preferred the upbeat melody and heartbroken lyrics of “Slammin’ Door,” Lindsay chose the haunting “You Remain,” and Emily decided on the slow and sweet ballad “I’d Be Lyin.’” As for myself? I’m enjoying their current single, “Crazy Too” which debuted as a Highway Find on Sirius XM The Highway and is consistently making its way up the Billboard and Mediabase charts while in rotation on 62 stations nationwide.
I love being able to sing back lyrics to an artist on stage and for my first time seeing these ladies perform, I’d consider that concert a great success. If you ever get the chance to see this talented group in your city, be sure to let me know by finding me on twitter! @KCarib
p.s. If you’re ever looking for a new concert tee or tank, their merchandise is super comfortable!
