Out this Friday is country crossover star Jessica Lynn’s latest single ‘Roadhouse’: a rip-roaring, roof-raising celebration of those American joints that brim with vibrant excitement. The song has become a firm fan favorite from Jessica’s acclaimed live shows and her stage spectaculars, but not been recorded or released until now.
Speaking about her upcoming single, Jessica says, “’Roadhouse’ has been one or my favorite songs from my live show for a few years now and I felt it was about time we recorded it! I was inspired to write this song after performing in dive bars for years, so maybe that’s why I’m so connected to it as well. It’s definitely a piece of me and where I came from, paying my dues as a musician throughout the years.”
It’s a busy time for Jessica, who did not rest on her laurels during lockdown but instead became a leading livestream performer, bringing her music —particularly piano livestreams — to her fans, becoming one of the top-rated livestreaming artists (ranking in Pollstar’s Livestream Top 10, often weekly), and being named a Top 40 Livestreamer of 2020, as well as a Top 20 Livestreamer of Q1 of 2021 by the ticket-reporting industry giant.
During lockdown, Jessica also worked hard laying down new material in the studio and releasing several singles which charted worldwide, as well as music videos which can be seen on VEVO and her YouTube channel. She also spent quarantine time pursuing many charitable endeavours, raising close to $20,000 for various animal, music, and veteran organisations via online streaming concerts, as well as being named an elite member of American Music Abroad by The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs: a role which will have her traveling to countries across the globe as an ambassador for the USA, spreading American music and culture.
