NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 20, 2015) — Just days after her single “I’m Making Mine” soared into the Top 10 of the MusicRow CountryBreakout ™ Chart,
the sensational young singer Erica Nicole has released another
soon-to-be-smash to Country radio.  “Like I Do” draws deep from Country
music’s ballad tradition.  Vickie Raye and Billy Ryan Droze wrote it as a
dialog between two women over the love of one man.  Its emotional
narrative and dramatic melody provide a perfect vehicle for Erica and
Grammy-nominated star Jamie O’Neal, who premiered the song together at
the 2015 Country Radio Seminar in Nashville.  On the single, each takes a
solo turn and then both join in a thrilling finale.  As classic Country
singing and lyric interpretation, “Like I Do” is a triumph by any
musical measure.
a great feeling to be on a stage and in the studio with Jamie,” Erica
says.  “If I’m going to be the best I can be, I’ve got to compete with
the powerhouse voices of Country music — and her voice is certainly one
of them.”
making great music, the Georgia-born artist is making chart history
too.  No other truly independent female Country artist has made it into
the MusicRow CountryBreakout ™ Top 10 since 2004, when Jill King
became the first to earn that distinction with “98.6.”  Erica is also
the first female artist on an independent label to loft three
consecutive singles into that chart’s Top 20, following “I Listen To My
Bad Girl,” “It’s Comin’ Down” and “I’m Making Mine.”
on the music of Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Reba McEntire and other
Country music legends, Erica Nicole moved to Nashville with a dream to
follow in their footsteps.  She is already well on her way, having won Best Female Country Artist of the Year
honors from NIMA (Nashville Music Industry Awards) in 2014.  In June
she made her first appearance onstage at CMA Music Festival.
Plans for 2016 tour dates, including possible appearances with O’Neal, are being discussed now.

Erica Nicole’s first two Country Radio hits (“I Listen To My Bad Girl,” “It’s Comin’ Down”) broke the MusicRow Country Breakout Chart’s
Top 20, and propelled the Georgia native to national prominence in the
process.  Inspired by classic Country icons George Strait, Dolly Parton
and Patsy Cline, Erica Nicole channels the magnetism of a more unusual
musical influence – Tina Turner – during her live shows.  This talented
entertainer brings high-energy, laser-like focus and rafter-raising
vocals to the stage night after night to her ever-expanding fan base. 
She’s opened for superstars Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Brad
Paisley, headlined her own shows, and sung the National Anthem at Fenway
Park (Boston Red Sox) and CitiField (NY Mets).  Fans of this engaging
singer/songwriter know they’re in for a no-holds-barred, swing for the
fences performance every time the blonde bombshell steps into the
spotlight.  The 2014 winner of the Nashville Industry Music Award for Best Female Country Artist of the Year is
an avid animal lover and supporter of the charity Educated Canines
Assisting With Disabilities (ECAD).  Her passions include college
football, comfortable clothes and Hershey’s Kisses.
