Rising songstress Mikayla Lane releases her newest single, “Ambush.”

“Ambush is your typical love story song but with a twist and some irony mixed in. Many have described it as ‘James Bond meets southwestern music’ and I couldn’t agree more! It’s about a girl who isn’t looking for love and along the way out of nowhere she gets ‘ambushed’ by love when she least expected it,” shared Mikayla.

Preview clips have garnered over 2.7 million views on social media, the eagerly-awaited full version of “Key West & Colorado” from singer-songwriter Chase Rice is out now.“

When we wrote ‘Key West & Colorado’ in Grayton Beach we weren’t necessarily planning on writing a song that day,” recalls Rice of the song’s origin. “We went out on Brian Kelley’s boat that day – it was me, him, John Byron, Blake Pendergrass, Corey Crowder and Hunter Phelps – and he told me that I’d actually posted about a trip I did from Key West to Colorado and he thought it’d be a cool title. Within less than a minute I twisted it to what the song turned into.”
