The Queen of Country Soul, Audra McLaughlin is set to release her stunning new single ‘I Don’t Wanna Feel The Sun’ on August 26th and it’s going to break your heart!
|Back in June this year, Audra made her very first trip over to the UK to perform at Buckle and Boots Festival where she took to the main stage with a full band and gave the audience an incredible show. With her high energy and flawless powerhouse vocals, it is safe to say that this Queen of Country Soul made a lot of new fans during her visit and left them wanting her to return as soon as possible. Her festival set list included the song ‘I Don’t Wanna Feel The Sun’ which was received with a deafening round of applause from the audience and so upon her return to Nashville, she started to plan for the single to be released which we are sure will delight her fans on both sides of the pond!
|‘I Don’t Wanna Feel The Sun’ will resonate with anyone who has had their heart broken. The kind of pain that leaves you hiding away from the world so you can go through the excruciating process of letting go. Some people lean on their friends and family for support but others just want to be left alone to pour a whiskey and allow themselves to drown away the memories of their lost love.
|This new single sees her teaming up once again with Nashville Veterans Johnny Garcia and Jimmy Mattingly as co-writers and producers. There is the unmistakable sound of Garcia on electric guitar and Audra’s soulful, husky voice gives us a spine tingling range of notes throughout. The polished production is what we have come to expect from this powerhouse trio and we’re not sure how they are going to top this one!
