As one of country music’s rising stars, Nikki Lane is one of those songwriters who is really hard to pin down at first. She avoids the pitfalls and cliches of country music, refusing to turn herself into a walking, talking honky-tonk stereotype. Instead, she inverts those tropes, producing thoughtful, enveloping takes on what country music is really supposed to be: real songs about real people with stories that relate to who we are. No glitz or glamour, just great songs. Nikki brings a no-bullshit attitude to the stage, as well, which is where her music really shines. She’ll be headed up north to Chicago’s Double Door to bring some of that vintage Nashville spirit to the Great Lakes. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
