Preview Highway Queen by Nikki Lane.
Visit the Nikki Lane web site.
I first heard Nikki Lane's name from Whitey Morgan who said he'd done a show with her out in California how great she was. If he recommended her, I had to check her out. Yeah. Everything about her screams, “I'm not afraid to get dirty. I'm not afraid of hard work.” She doesn't exactly wear her blur collar heritage like a badge of honor like so many singers do. But at the same time she doesn't hide it either. I like that about her. I'd say her sound is half rock & roll, half outlaw country. Whenever you have a new tough country singer on the scene, people automatically compare the newbie to Wanda Jackson or Loretta Lynn. Personally, I don't see it. Maybe there's some Loretta Lynn in her vocals. But her persona is all her own. Nikki Lane's Highway Queen is good driving outlaw music for your next elopement to Las Vegas, your next high speed getaway, or your next party on the back forty.
