Nashville, TN (LANTANA Official Website/ www.lantanamusic.com) - The vibrant country music trio, LANTANA, knows that everything is bigger in Texas
- and they picked the largest audience possible for their hometown debut. The trio plans to kick a** with an energetic live show as they kick off their first CD-release party for UNBRIDLED (BGM Records) at the State
Fair of Texas
on October 6. The group will rock the Toyota Stage at 3 p.m. with a 90-minute set.
'It's the biggest weekend of the year in Dallas,' says Biz Haddock, referring to the University of Texas vs. Oklahoma University football game, 'Go Longhorns!' Karol Ann DeLong explains with a laugh, 'We always do things BIGGER in Texas and we wanted to stir things up - the State Fair of Texas should do just that. Dalene Richelle, a former Calgary (Canada) Stampeders' cheerleader, is excited, too. 'Millions of people attend this fair," she says. "This will be the Fair's biggest weekend, and the rivalry should have the crowd pumped."
LANTANA knows the feeling well. The trio has kicked up more dust than a Texas twister, and their career is sparking interest wherever they go. UNBRIDLED hit store shelves this week; they have done countless media interviews and visited over 40 radio stations on their CD-promotion tour. LANTANA'S debut single, 'Country As A City Girl Can Be,' is climbing up the Texas Music
Early reviews are in. Country Stars Online calls the album 'A pleasing blend of ballads, thigh-slappers and good, rockin' country,' and Dallas Morning News touts the hometown trio's disc as well. ' (They) kick up their sassy boot heels on this 13-song debut.' Not to be outdone, Countrymusic.About.com calls the CD ' A joyful listen that sounds as good on repeated listening as it did the first time.
