NASHVILLE, TENN. – Fresh off her aptly-named trio of hometown shows, The Heartbreak Supper Club, where exceeding-capacity crowds forced a venue change, Big Loud Records / Songs & Daughters Lauren Watkins releases her second EP of the year today, six-song sequel Introducing: The Heartbreak.
Written alongside decorated experts like The Warren Brothers, Nicolle Galyon, Jessie Jo Dillon, Rodney Clawson, David Garcia, and more, Watkins completes her musical introduction with “Jealous of Jane,” and “Fly On The Wall” featuring labelmate and Texas Country Music Awards Male Artist of the Year Jake Worthington. Both songs join previous releases “Fine County Line,” “Stuck In My Ways,” “The Table,” and “Cowboys on Music Row” with fellow country riser Carter Faith.
“An EP would not be complete without a couple of jealousy songs, so ‘Jealous of Jane’ and ‘Fly On The Wall’ are kind of the cherry on top for me, I’m so happy that they’re out finally,” Watkins says.
“This project is me just going one step further in introducing myself to the world,” she continues. “I feel like these songs are a perfect taste of the type of songs that I love; love to listen to and love to write. I wrote all of them with people that I love, that I’ve looked up to for a while and have learned so much from, so to have them on this project is amazing, not to mention the artist collaborations that I got to do with Carter and Jake. I’m just really excited and happy to put this music out there and see where it takes us.”

Rounding out a breakout year, the new set follows spring release Introducing: Lauren Watkins that earned her comparisons to Kacey Musgraves, Miranda Lambert, and Ashley McBryde. Throughout the end of the year, Watkins will be on the road supporting Conner Smith, ahead of a monumental 2024 where she’ll debut at Stagecoach and support several stadium dates for labelmate Morgan Wallen.

ABOUT LAUREN WATKINS
Drenched in authenticity and rife with barstool charm with an addictive, Tennessee limestone gravel in her voice, Nashville-born and bred songbird Lauren Watkins writes, breathes, and lives country music. The 24-year-old original grew up on the outskirts of Guitar Town, mesmerized by a jukebox rotation of country music, from outlaws like Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow to chart-toppers Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, and Chris Stapleton. Moving back after four years at Ole Miss, Watkins’ unyielding, turn on a dime lyricism quickly caught the attention of GRAMMY-nominated multi-hyphenate Nicolle Galyon, who signed her to publishing and recording contracts with Songs & Daughters / Big Loud Records almost instantly. Honing in on a sound that’s both reverent of the genre’s roots and in lockstep with where it’s headed next, she’s introducing her take on country music now with a double shot debut: seven-song set Introducing: Lauren Watkins, released in April, and six-song sequence, Introducing: The Heartbreak, out now. Watkins spent the summer touring notable fairs and festivals throughout North America, alongside treks opening for Jameson Rodgers, Morgan Wallen, Lily Rose, Austin Snell and more. She’s on the road now supporting Conner Smith.
