PREPS INTRODUCING: THE HEARTBREAK FOR LAUNCH – OUT IN FULL 11/17
“COWBOYS ON MUSIC ROW” WITH CARTER FAITH + “STUCK IN MY WAYS” OUT TODAY
HEARTBREAK SUPPER CLUB RESIDENCY LEVELS UP AFTER SPRINGWATER’S SPEAKERS BLOW OUT IN PACKED-OUT HALLOWEEN SHOWCASE
NASHVILLE, TENN. – Adding to a burgeoning catalog that Whiskey Riff calls “unique, original, and country as hell,” Big Loud Records / Songs & Daughters firebrand Lauren Watkins returns today with two more tunes – “Cowboys on Music Row” with country compatriot Carter Faith and “Stuck In My Ways”– out now.
“Stuck In My Ways” celebrates the comfort in the mundane, a routine-riddled toe-tapper about being stubborn and happy, “stuck” in habits that fit like a glove. “Cowboys on Music Row” is a mournful duet, perfectly balanced by Watkins’ Tennessee limestone gravel and Faith’s light-as-a-feather soprano. Wishing for days of old when outlaws had bona fides and country music was just three chords and the truth, they sing:
I’m needin’ a red headed stranger
I miss the real rodeo man
A slow talking, walking lone ranger
Who means it – when he gives a damn
They sang what they knew
And they knew what they sang
I wish I could find one
To whisk me away
Where oh, where oh, where did they go
There ain’t no cowboys on music row
Listen to “Cowboys On Music Row” with Carter Faith + “Stuck In My Ways” here.
Both songs join past releases “The Table” and “Fine County Line,” all of which appear on Watkins’ forthcoming six-song sampler,Introducing: The Heartbreak, out Nov. 17.

Proving her status as a “country superstar in the making” (Holler) with live chops to boot, Watkins’ buzzy Nashville residency the Heartbreak Supper Club reached an all-time high earlier this week with a Halloween barn burner for the books. The up-and-comer literally blew the speakers out at Springwater Supper Club, improvising on the fly and hopping up on a table clad in a Cher costume to finish the set acoustic, leading the crowd in a deafening sing along and delivering an unforgettable good time. Stay tuned for a new, larger venue for Supper Club’s final Nashville show on Nov. 14, and catch Watkins on tour nationwide opening dates for both Austin Snell and Conner Smith.
