Nationally acclaimed singer, songwriter, author, producer, and survivor, Kelly Lang has released her latest single “Life Sentence” along with a new music video that was premiered by American Songwriter. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, Lang wanted to pay tribute to those who fought the true fight of their lives and are thriving today. She enlisted the help of her friends and followers on social media to send in photos of themselves holding signs that offer hope to others who are currently battling cancer. As a result of the life-altering diagnosis that she received seventeen years ago, Lang has a different outlook than most and encourages all to live EACH day to its fullest and enjoy everything life has to offer. Lang has dedicated “Life Sentence” to her dear friend, the late Dame Olivia Newton-John, and it is available on all digital platforms today!

“I wrote the song “Life Sentence” with my friend the late Bruce Burch,” shares Lang. “He had heard me say that a cancer diagnosis could sometimes feel like a death sentence, but I decided to change the way I looked at it. I began looking at it as my “Life Sentence.” By that I mean, I am more appreciative of everything in my life. I try to encourage others to use the good china, take those vacations, burn your candles and do the things that make you happy. We are not guaranteed tomorrow, so live life to the fullest and more boldly while you can.”
Earlier this month, Lang was invited to perform at the 29th Annual A Tennessee Waltz at the historic Tennessee State Capitol. The event is the prestigious annual fundraiser for the Tennessee State Museum Foundation. The sold-out gala, hosted by Governor Bill Lee, showcased Lang’s talent. She performed her popular single “I’m Not Going Anywhere” as well as the beloved Tennessee State Song, “Tennessee Waltz.” Lang also performed her self-penned single “Under A Tennessee Moon ” showcasing many of the reasons people from around the world travel to Tennessee to experience everything it has to offer from the Great Smokey Mountains to Graceland and the Grand Ole Opry.
