Big Machine Records artist Laura Bell Bundy has been added to the impressive list of country music stars who will perform during the Brickfest Music Festival on Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28 during the Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The multifaceted entertainer will perform on the IMS infield stage Sunday morning, July 28 at the Brickfest Music Festival and also will sing “America the Beautiful” before the start of the Crown Royal Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard Powered by BigMachineRecords.com.
The spunky starlet, who began writing songs at age 14, co-penned “Two Step,” her first single on Big Machine Records. The punchy melody and playful lyrics, which are all about independence … “I’m gonna do my two step … watch where you step, you’re two steps behind," quickly move from mundane to oh my. The energetic single is available digitally now and officially hits country radio playlists Aug. 5. Watch the video.
Bundy, a native of Lexington, Ky., sprung into the national spotlight after garnering prominent roles on Broadway (“Legally Blonde” and “Wicked,” among others) and television shows (“Hart of Dixie” most recently), showcasing her vocal ability, acting skill and animated personality. She also scored a Tony Award nomination and a lead role in CMT’s first original movie, “To The Mat,” for her dynamic talents.
