Cary Laine, the blue eyed beauty from the beaches of Alabama may be the biggest thing to enter the Alt Country music scene since Dolly Parton. Armed with an acoustic guitar and a powerhouse voice, her tone can put it's listener at immediate attention as she delivers her message with no apologies. Since her national introduction on NBC's The Voice (and turning all four chairs) in 2014, Cary has been touring the country and writing new material, all while promoting her newly released, first ever full length album, Miss Alabama.
Growing up along the Gulf Coast of Alabama gave Cary her southern drawl as well as her roots in country music. "I remember fishing trips in the Gulf of Mexico listening to Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, and Merle Haggard. I have a connection to the south that I am proud of." From there, Cary began writing and performing locally and as she became a young woman, her musical tastes broadened to that of classic rock artists like Stevie Nicks, Alanis Morissette, and Adele. "I admired any woman out there singing from her gut about their inner thoughts and things that weren't typically sung in country songs".
Just when Laine was beginning to get noticed around the southeast, her family had a job offer in Wyoming and she had to make a difficult decision to stay in Alabama or follow her family and start all over again. She took the road less traveled and said goodbye to everything she knew and headed to Wyoming. It proved to be her destiny. While keeping her chops up performing at local venues in the small town of Pinedale, Wyoming, seeing no future for her musical career, she was contacted by NBC's The Voice. Apparently, her homespun videos on YouTube along with her modest social media promotion got the attention of the producers of the show. Out of nowhere, the next thing she knew, she was performing on national television for millions of viewers.
The Voice was a catalyst to Laine's career, growing her fan base to hundreds of thousands within days. After parting with the show, it was only natural to get back to writing and begin recording her debut album. Laine has something to prove, something to say. She is more than the girl on The Voice with the red cowboy boots. So she made another life changing decision to get back to her roots and move back to Alabama. Teaming up with Anthony Crawford (Neil Young, Steve Winwood, Dwight Yoakam) and Admiral Bean Studio in Loxley, Alabama, she began recording her debut album, Miss Alabama, which was just released early 2016.
