NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Emerging Australian songstress Lily Grace celebrates her journey with the release of her single, “Follow My Road,” available everywhere today. Written by Lily with Chaise Flanders and Kirsti Manna, who co-wrote Blake Shelton‘s No. 1 hit “Austin,” and produced by Australian Award-Winning Michael Flanders with Caleb Flanders, the lyrics bring a confident narrative to this rising singer-songwriter’s story as she ventures from Australia to Nashville with an upbeat, catchy tempo to compliment.
“I wrote ‘Follow My Road’ to empower people to follow their dreams and set out on their own path. This song is about being independent and not needing to be reliant on anyone else; a man, a parent, etc. It’s important to know your own values, attitudes and beliefs and put these first. Stay true to yourself, your emotions and trust that you’re the captain of your own ship,” Lily shared.
In 2022, Lily was the supporting act for Vance Joy at Riverstage in Brisbane, playing to a crowd of over 10,000 and most recently performed at Tamworth, Australia’s largest country music festival. She released her single “The Two of Us Meet,” which has now garnered over 1 million streams on Spotify alone, debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Australia Country Chart and landed her on Spotify’s New Music Nashville, CMT’s Australia Playlist and many others. The song also rose to the Top 30 on the Music Row Indie Chart and climbed to CMT Australia Top 30 as well.
The demand for her music in the U.S. has drawn her to Nashville, where she spent over 6 weeks doing radio interviews, television appearances, podcasts, songwriting, recording and performing in 2022. She performed at Live on the Levee in Charleston, W.V., toured with the Davisson Brothers Band and performed at the Barefoot Country Music Festival in Wildwoods, N.J.; Freedom Fest in Monterey, Tenn.; songwriter’s rounds at the iconic Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and other well-known Nashville songwriter’s venues. The future of this young artist certainly looks bright.
