With Somebody’s Gonna Pay, her debut project for eOne Music Nashville, Mickie James has set out to carve a new path for herself. An entertainer and athlete since childhood, the TNA Impact professional wrestling star – a multi-time world champion – has spent the last decade as part of some of the biggest pro wrestling organizations in the world. But now she’s using a microphone to rev up concert crowds rather than run down wrestling opponents, taking on the music world full-force.
“I recognized the fact that I’m starting from square one, all over again,” Mickie says. “And I kinda want to keep those two worlds separate because I want my music career to be taken seriously, and not just ‘Hey, it’s that girl that wrestles!’
“This is something I’d always wanted to do, and I’ve never held back on anything I’d been dead set on doing in my life,” she continues. “I feel like that passion and that drive is what really molds you as a person of character, and people connect with that. It’s not necessarily something you can teach, you either have it or you’re scared of it.”
Listeners can connect with that passion and drive from the very first notes of Somebody’s Gonna Pay’s title track. Produced by hitmaker R.S. Field (Alison Moorer, Todd Snider, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and many more), the Jamie Hartford-penned tune showcases Mickie’s high-energy style, something she’s honed not only in the ring, but also via recent performances opening for the likes of Gretchen Wilson, Randy Houser and Montgomery Gentry.
