Just two EPs into her career, Aubrie Lynn is quickly making a name for herself in the country music community.
The College Station native continued the momentum of her debut EP with her latest release, a self-titled EP, in 2018. The three songs on the EP have gone on to achieve more than 5,000 views on Spotify combined, as well as thousands more on YouTube.
As Lynn prepares to release a new single in February, learn a bit more about her influences, when she knew she wanted to make music for a living, the stories behind some of her songs, and more in these quick hitting questions!
Pro Country: Who were your biggest musical influences growing up?
Aubrie Lynn: Loretta Lynn, George Strait and Dolly Parton
PC: Was there a specific moment you knew you wanted to make music for a living?
AL: My first trip to Nashville!
PC: You got a fairly late start in music, not playing guitar until you were 20. What was it about music that drew you in at that point in your life?
AL: I had been playing for a while, and got tired of paying a guitar player! (laughs)
PC: Were you feeling any type of pressure, internally or externally, as you were preparing to release music for the first time with the “Get Lost With You EP”?
AL: No, I was SO excited!
PC: “Waiting on You” earned a few thousand streams on Spotify, as well as thousands of views on YouTube. What kind of validation is it for you to have your fanbase connect with a song the way they have connected to that one?
AL: It’s rewarding to say the least. I do this for the people who listen!
PC: “Slow” is another song that has really connected with people and has gotten off to a good start. Why did you decide to make this the lead track on your new EP?
AL: It was a fun song and something I had never tried!
PC: “Come On Home” is one of the standout tracks in your catalog. Can you talk about the inspiration behind that song?
AL: Traveling as much as I do, it’s always nice to know I can come home whenever!
PC: “Put Your Records On” sounds like it comes from a variety of different influences and styles, but still fits in with the rest of the EP. Is it at all important for you to showcase a versatility in your sound?
AL: Super important! I have a wide range of music styles. I always enjoy showing off my artistry!
PC: What do you hope people take away from your self-titled EP after listening all the way through?
AL: I hope they go through all of the emotions and finish listening with a smile on their face!
PC: What are your plans for the near future?
AL: More new music!! I have a single releasing in late February that I’m SO proud of!!
