Audra McLaughlin Releases New Single ‘Headed For The Fall’
Audra McLaughlin has released her brand new single Headed For The Fall and we’re delighted to feature it as our Country Release Friday pick with MAM Roots. In contrast to the fun summer anthem (Can’t Buy) Fun Like This, released earlier this year, Headed For The Fall showcases Audra’s phenomenal vocal range and gives us a real taste of the edgier side of this Queen of Country Soul. With an infectious chorus and the magical blend of guitars, you’ll want to enjoy listening to this song with the volume cranked up!
Talking about Headed For The Fall, Audra revealed, “It’s a song about knowing that you love this person but you know your not good for each other. I dove back into my feelings from a past relationship. I knew deep down I loved him but I knew it would never work in the long run. I think sometimes it’s hard to realize that when you have built a life with someone. Sometimes you can love someone but it’s just not enough if you don’t see eye to eye”.
Singer-Songwriter Audra McLaughlin grew to national fame in the USA as a member of Team Blake on season 6 of NBC’s “The Voice” where she reached the live shows and finished in the Top 6 Artists.
Following her time on the show and after touring with the NASCAR band for two years, the Pennsylvania native moved to Nashville after needing vocal surgery and rehabilitation stemming from a cyst on her vocal chord. During her recovery process, she began working with leading vocal coach Kati Hendricks, who would later connect her with industry veteran Jimmy Mattingly in 2019. Audra inked a co-publishing deal with Jimmy Mattingly and Johnny Garcia. Both of whom worked with Audra on this latest single – co-writing, producing and also featuring as musicians.
“Audra is truly the best unsigned vocalist I’ve ever heard, and I don’t say that loosely. I’d rank her up there with the likes of Martina McBride, Mariah Carey, and yes….even Trisha. She has amazing chops, incredible control, and an astounding range. I can’t wait for folks to discover her!” – Jimmy Mattingly
