Growing up, Lottie split her time between both Chapman and Montgomery, Alabama, getting a taste for the city during the week for school, and staying tied to her extended family in the country on weekends and summer months. She credits her mother’s taste in “just good music” for helping shape her songwriting style, and it was a cousin’s guitar style that helped awaken a more upbeat sound. Now in Nashville, her music shimmers with Music City’s signature polish, but continues to twang with the soul of the deeper south. Raised in a familial tradition of strong women, Lottie carries this legacy proudly with tunes that stand tall, while remembering where they learned such poise.
