NASHVILLE, TENN. – With “an effortlessly smoky quality” (Billboard) hazing across three-and-a-half minutes of vitriolic kiss off, Lauren Watkins returns today with new song “Mama, I Made It” just in time to debut at her hometown’s largest play, Nashville’s Nissan Stadium, opening shows for Morgan Wallen this weekend.

Driving in the same sonic lane as Kerosene-era Miranda Lambert, the upbeat toe-tapper written by Watkins, Rocky Block, and Lauren Hungate and produced by diamond-certified studio ace Joey Moi, finds Watkins in the eye of the storm, heartbroken and breaking things over a relationship gone off the rails. Pissed off and vengeful, she turns her co-penned phrases on a dime with fire and a wink, bragging: This train’s a wreck / it’s such a mess / and mama, I made it.

“I’ve been dying for y’all to hear this one,” Watkins shared on socials last night. “Hope ya love it.”

Give It A Listen

Previewing her anticipated full-length debut due out this summer, Watkins’ first taste of new music bolsters her developing reputation for “sure-footed lyric sense, a smoky vocal, and deft picking” (MusicRow).

Last week, Watkins owned a dynamic, two-part Stagecoach debut, with The Palm Springs Desert Sun complimenting how “she owned the stage like a singer with years of experience.” Up next, she continues down the road opening for Wallen through early June, before playing more notable festivals including CMA Fest, Country Concert, Boots & Hearts, WE Fest, and more through the fall.
