“Thoughts of You” is the title track off Olivia’s EP, which showcases the fifteen-year-old’s original material that continues to impress audiences. Last fall, Olivia opened for Lady Antebellum and Old Dominion at Coastal Country Jam with her band Olivia Ooms and The Resistors. Olivia’s summer calendar is full of new releases and high-profile appearances. On June 1, Olivia opened for country music icon Tanya Tucker in Ashland, Ky. Tanya, whose path Olivia can certainly relate to as a teenage songstress rising to fame, invited Olivia onstage for an encore performance of “Delta Dawn.” Recently, Olivia performed and signed autographs for fans during CMA Fest.
The rising singer-songwriter is also the first female country artist featured on Radio Disney’s new station RDYou. The station was created to spotlight emerging artists. By downloading the Radio Disney App, fans can listen to “Thoughts of You,” which she wrote and recorded in Nashville.
