Laura Bell’s 2010 album on Universal Records, Achin’ and Shakin’ debuted as Top #5 albums on The Billboard country music charts. Laura Bell penned all but one of the songs on the album. Her breakout hit from the Shakin’ set was “Giddy On Up” which reached #31 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Charts and landed her a show stopping performance on the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards. She was nominated for CMT Breakout Video of the Year with “Giddy On Up.” “Achin & Shakin” earned a Gold Record in Norway and eventually led to her touring in Europe and internationally. Her 2013 single with Big Machine Records, “Two Step” featuring Colt Ford, answers the age-old question of what happens when you combine HOT, country, dance tracks and hip-hop beats. Bundy was featured in Rolling Stone for being the first female country artist to incorporate hip hop and dance beats into her music. Her 2015 Big Machine album was released to rave reviews and her single “I Am What I Am” was Top 10 in Australia’s Country Music Charts and was heavily rotated on CMT. Laura Bell wrote, directed and produced all four of the music videos for this album.
