The summer might be winding down, but Amanda Lamb's breezy new single "We Were Here" will keep the heat going for a little while longer. Searing as unrelentless as the sun, the track, produced by Kent Wells (Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire) is the perfect addition to any roadtrip playlist. Despite her previous work at pop and AC formats, she says country has always been in her bones. “I’ve always been a country-girl at heart, and this is the first step to accepting who I am and wanting to share my stories,” she says, noting the song is her debut country entry.
She adds, “I grew up listening to country music. When I was a competitive horseback rider, my trainer would blast country as we tacked and untacked our horses. Those times are my fondest memories of that chapter of my life."
"We Were Here" finds itself landing somewhere between Faith Hill and Taylor Swift, sampling giddy, warm beats and a memorabl hook. As hard as it is for females to breakthrough, Lamb just might put herself on the map with this one. Currently living in Nashville, the 20-year-old has been at the grind, cultivating her songwriter voice and working with such established tunesmiths as Bill Diluigi and Melissa Bollea.
