NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A cowgirl with “vocals unable to be fenced in (American Songwriter),” singer-songwriter Mikayla Lane showcases her sentimental side with new single “Love You Like I Want To,” available everywhere today. The track was co-written by Mikayla, demonstrating yet again that the country songstress has a “knack for storytelling that proves she’s wise beyond her years (CMT.com).”

“‘Love You Like I Want To’ is an upbeat backroad driving kinda song. I wrote it around an “Oklahoma love story,” and it’s how a lot of these real life stories go!” shared Mikayla.
Mikayla was just announced as a performer during Boot Barn’s takeover at Hard Rock Cafe Nashville June 8 – 11, alongside Brian Kelley, Lucas Hoge, Hailey Whitters, Tenille Arts, David Nail and more. The Oklahoma-raised singer will also be performing at Legends Event Park in Chickasha, OK on June 2 and Billy Bob’s iconic stage in Ft. Worth, TX on June 3, as she opens up for country legends Shenandoah.
Last month Mikayla opened up for Aaron Watson in Midland, TX at the Horseshoe Arena for a special Fossil Fueled event put on by Innovex. The show benefited Oil Patch Kids, a volunteer organization that supports children of the permian basin by providing funds to organizations that serve at risk children who are victims of abuse, neglect or poverty.

With heart, vision and talent beyond her years, she knows what she wants and she is determined to chase her dream; her pursuit began early on. Mikayla was just 13 when she earned a spot on Blake Shelton’s OIe Red talent roster, which originated in Shelton’s hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma and Mikayla’s home state. She has become a staple at the venue in Tishomingo and has appeared on the Ole Red stages in Nashville, Gatlinburg and Orlando. The country music starlet has become a “fan-favorite” at a variety of notable venues, including Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa where she opened for Jon Wolfe. She is the venue’s youngest supporting act to date.
In September 2021, Mikayla introduced her sophomore recording project, Miles From Nowhere, featuring four originals that embrace her western lifestyle. In keeping with family tradition and their mutual passion for rodeo and the lifestyle, Mikayla was recently named as the official spokesperson for the nation’s largest youth rodeo, the Vegas Tuffest Junior World Championship.
“Rodeo Money,” Mikayla’s previous single, premiered exclusively on People.com with a music video where she “mulls a romance with a cowboy who is more in love with the rodeo life than anything else.” “Rodeo Money” was filmed in Mikayla’s hometown of Tulsa, Okla. at the Ford Truck Arena and was directed by Justin Mayotte, executive produced by Cole Johnstone with storyboards by Mike Harris. The video was also added to CMT.com‘s music videos page today.
