" 'I’ll Fly Away'" has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl, and I’ve covered it for as long as I can remember,” Mikayla shared. “It was an easy decision to select this song as a favorite cover to record. It’s been even more special getting to meet and know Jackson Brumley, the son of writer Albert Brumley, during the recording process.”
Mikayla recently launched her exclusive line of high-end western fashion, The Mikayla Lane Collection, which features handbags custom made by Alamo Saddlery in Del Rio, Texas. She will host a pop-up shop showcasing her new brand on Jan. 25 at The Showroom Nashville. For more information, visit mikaylalanecollection.com.
Additionally, Mikayla made her “Song Suffragettes” showcase debut at The Listening Room Cafe in Nashville on Aug. 29. Her newest single, "Ambush," was released on July 29 and debuted at No. 1 on OneRPM's "Country Bound" playlist on Spotify, and also landed on CMT’s "The Round Up" playlist on Spotify and Apple Music. Written by Mikayla and John Conrad and produced by Jimmy Ritchey (Jake Owen, Clay Walker, Mark Chesnutt), "Ambush" “brings a spunky, cowgirl-themed tale of unexpected love on the range and offers up a western-esque vibe.”
