Vocal powerhouse and critic darling, Meghan Linsey, exclusively premiered her debut single as a solo artist, “Try Harder Than That,” this month on Sirius XM’s The Highway as an official “Highway Find.” This is the first single from her forthcoming EP (due out later 2014), features Bubba Sparxxx, adding a flavorful twist to the empowering anthem.

About Meghan Linsey:

No stranger to the spotlight, Meghan Linsey was one half of the wildly successful country music duo Steel Magnolia. The pair gained national attention from winning CMT’s music competition show Can You Duet, whichresulted in a major label deal with Big Machine Records.After countless CMA, ACM and Teen Choice award nominations, nearly one million downloads, and tours with superstars Reba, Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton the duo parted ways.  Meghan has spent the last two years writing and honing in on her strengths as a solo artist.  Her debut single, “Try Harder Than That,” is an upbeat empowering anthem, which showcases her signature powerhouse vocals America originally fell in love with.  Her self titled debut EP will release later in 2014.

About Bubba Sparxx:

It seems like Country Rap is starting to take over mainstream. With the recent success of Colt Ford and The Lacs along with current “rap style” hits by country mega stars Jason Aldean (Dirt Road Anthem), Toby Keith (Red Solo Cup) and Tim McGraw (Truck Yeah) one would think that this is a new concept.

But you may recall this movement actual began in 2001 with the release of Bubba Sparxxx’s debut album “Dark Days, Bright Nights”

The video for the first single “Ugly” featured Bubba and pals in the mud with pigs, on tractors and performing in front of a house covered with bug lights. If that’s not the epitome of Country, then nothing is.

Check out “Try Harder Than That” below, and remember to always let Sirius XM The Highway know how much you are loving these #HighwayFind and #OnTheHorizon songs to help these newer artists break out.

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
