Mickey Lamantia To Make Nashville Debut Opening for Mickey Gilley

Rising Country Star Mickey Lamantia To Make Nashville Debut
Opening for Mickey Gilley
March 14, 2017, Nashville, TN…Rhode Island-based, outlaw country artist, Mickey Lamantia,
will make his Nashville debut on St. Patrick’s Day opening for Mickey
Gilley.  Lamantia has a very interesting background working as a
correctional officer for the state of Rhode Island for nearly 20 years. 
As a songwriter, he is inspired by the loneliness of the enclosed
walls, and the slow passage of time. “The prison has given me a lot of
perspective that I apply to songwriting. You have to be rough around the
edges to work here. I’ve dealt with some evil people, and I’ve dealt
with people who just made mistakes,” he says.
Leveraging social media, Lamantia has developed an impressive following through his Whiskey Wednesdays,
Facebook Live series, which is sponsored by the spirit brand Sons of
Liberty. He often plays live from their distillery and averages between
10,000-40,000 views on the weekly show. He has nearly 1 million views on
a video for his original song “How Do I Say Goodbye?” which has been
shared over 25,000 times on Facebook. 
Lamantia will soon  release his second album, Outlaw Life, which satisfies
fans’ requests for more traditional country music on the
radio.  Lamantia will perform solo acoustic on March 17, at the Nashville Palace at 7 p.m. as part of Mickey Gilley’s St. Patrick’s Day Urban Cowboy Style party.
