KELLY LANG RELEASES ‘THROWBACK’ WITH SPECIAL GUESTS OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN, PAUL SHAFFER AND LEE GREENWOOD
Album Accompanied by Special Nashville Show on March 29 at 3rd and Lindsley Presented by Springer Mountain Farms Chicken
 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 16, 2016)
– Recording artist and acclaimed songwriter, Kelly Lang, will take the
stage at Nashville’s 3rd and Lindsley on Tuesday, March 29, 2016 at 7PM
to perform songs from her brand new album Throwback. The show
will spotlight songs from the star-studded project, which includes guest
appearances by entertainment icon Olivia Newton-John, “God Bless the
U.S.A.” singer Lee Greenwood and former band leader on “Late Show with
David Letterman,” Paul Shaffer. Tickets for the show are just $15 and
are available in advance at www.3rdandlindsley.com
and at the door. The Springer Mountain Farms Chicken sponsored show
will take fans on a roller coaster ride with a very special surprise.

“In recording these, it was strictly out of honor for the artists who
recorded it before. I’m trying to pass along my appreciation for these
artists to future generations,” says Lang. “I heard a very interesting
quote, which pretty much sums it up: ‘singing an old song is like
visiting an old friend.’”

The latest album, which hits the highest and lowest of emotions, is available now on iTunes, Amazon and kellylang.net.
The inspiration behind the project comes from a series of “Throwback
Thursday” videos on Lang’s Facebook page, where she sings some of her
favorite ‘throwback’ tunes. Listen in close, as the talented singer
pours her heart out on standout tracks like “How Can You Mend a Broken
Heart” featuring Olivia Newton John, who adds, “My dear friend Kelly
Lang has sung some of my favorite songs on this CD and I loved singing
our hero Barry Gibb’s song with her!” Fans can step inside the studio
with Olivia and Kelly in a behind-the-scenes video HERE.
Also featured on the album is the breathtaking “Last Date,” which
features “Late Night With David Letterman” band leader Paul Shaffer
playing keyboard (check out behind-the-scenes footage HERE). Grammy award winning singer Lee Greenwood teams with Lang on the ballad, “It Turns Me Inside Out,” which fans can preview HERE.

The project, which was recently spotlighted on Billboard,
sees Lang tackling songs originally made famous by top artists like
Kenny Rogers on the track “Morning Desire.” Lang had the honor of
performing at the iconic singer’s Country Music Hall of Fame induction
alongside Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees. The CD also features the cut “I
Can’t Help Falling In Love With You,” which was made famous by the late
Elvis Presley, who was a close friend to Lang’s husband, 21-time country
chart-topper T.G. Sheppard. The project was released via Leopard
Entertainment and produced by Kelly Lang.

Lang is no stranger to success, getting her start in the business as
the winner of the hit television show “Ed McMahon’s Star Search.” Over
the years, she has also excelled as a talented songwriter, penning
multiple songs for Lorrie Morgan, including tracks on upcoming albums Letting Go Slow and A Picture of Me – Greatest Hits & More. The talented singer/songwriter also wrote eight songs on T.G. Sheppard’s latest critically acclaimed album, Legendary Friends & Country Duets.
