Holly Spears Releases Country Album, While Filming Her Acting Debut in the Upcoming Faith-Based Film, Nail 32
(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) — Singer-songwriter Holly Spears is pleased to announce the release of her first country EP, Boots and Bling, which is available now at iTunes
and www.hollyspears.com. The 8-song EP from Girl on a Mission Music is the follow-up to her 2014 Christian music EP, Audience of One.
“Boots and Bling is my attempt to get back to my roots and
embrace who I’ve grown into, says Spears. “I grew up in a little
country town and dared to moved away from it at the young age of 18. I
moved five hours away from everything I had ever known in pursuit of a
music career. Back then, I couldn’t wait to move to the city. Now, I
can’t wait to live on more property and get more horses. I grew up as a
tomboy, and when I moved away, I became more girly.’ Today, Im a good
mix of the two.
As if she wasnt busy enough with promoting her new album, Spears is currently in Texas filming the upcoming faith-based film, Nail 32. Along with Spears, the film stars Brad Johnson (Always, Left Behind), Lea Penick (American Hoggers)
and more in an exhilarating and emotional true-life story of an
ordinary man from north Texas who served an extraordinary purpose. The
film depicts the grueling travels of the rodeo circuit, from the
backbreaking bull riding to the musical oasis of the honky-tonks. It
portrays both the picturesque culture of the American rancher while
dispensing cowboy pride and simplistic life solutions. Just as 32 nails
attach the shoes to a horse, Nail 32 clenches the importance of men being courageous, honorable, and truly God fearing.
Spears wrote five of the songs on Boots and Bling, many of which
will be featured in the upcoming film. On her new EP, Spears examines
her life with songs like Brothers” and a song about her Grandpa called,
Sunshine. Says Spears, “My Pap’ was the glue that held our family
together. I could definitely see Jesus in him, as well as an ornery
side, which made everyone love him!
The EP also includes cover versions of John Denvers Country Roads,”
Paula Coles Where Have All the Cowboys Gone and the Dixie Chicks hit,
Wide Open Spaces – which Spears calls the theme song of her teen
“For so many years, I rejected where I grew up, chasing someone I
wasnt, says Spears. “Now, I am learning to be at home in my own skin
and to embrace all the parts of me – the boots and the bling. My hope is
that this album inspires everyone to be proud of who they are and where
they come from and to know to their very core that they always belong.”
