Meet Laura Bell Bundy…
Born in Lexington, KY, Laura Bell first found success (and a Tony Award-nomination) in New York by originating the lead role of Elle Woods in the Broadway musical, Legally Blonde. She also originated the role of Amber Von Tussle in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Hairspray and played Glinda in the smash hit Wicked.
Laura Bell Bundy isn’t a typical country artist and created a bold concept album for her first release Achin’ and Shakin’, which is essentially two separate albums within one project: Achin'– a collection of slow and sultry country songs — and Shakin', a group of sassy songs that are equal parts humor, confidence and attitude. One side presents a modern-day mixture of Loretta Lynn, Minnie Pearl and Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw; the other unveils country's answer to Norah Jones.
“'Two records, one woman' is my motto,” jokes Laura Bell, who penned all but one of the songs on the album.
