Produced by label head Stephen Mougin, the song features Jenee Fleenor (2021 CMA Musician Of The Year) and Brittany Haas (2021 Artist in Residence at East Tennessee State University). This country-infused track showcases Orshaw’s incredible fiddle skills and captivating vocal abilities. “I Can’t Settle Down” was written by Roberta Gordon and Tim Carter and is available anywhere you consume music now.

Musicians: Laura Orshaw (Vocal/Fiddle), Jenee Fleenor (Vocal/Fiddle), Brittany Haas (Fiddle), Alan Bartram (Bass), Reed Stutz (Mandolin) and Catherine BB Bowness (Banjo)

Nashville Noise hosted the exclusive audio first listen.

Orshaw shares: "I used to think of myself as a homebody, but in the past few years I’ve realized that I love waking up on the tour bus, not knowing exactly where I am until I walk out the door. This sentiment paired with the square dance fiddle tune melody, is what drew me to ‘I Can’t Settle Down’.  Jenee Fleenor and Brittany Haas joined me for the triple fiddle section, and we created a rhythmic ‘wall of sound’ that’ll make you want to shuffle around the dance floor!"

Orshaw was a recent guest on Steve Martin’s Unreal Bluegrass to discuss the new single.

“I Can’t Settle Down” is the third single from Laura’s forthcoming album, Solitary Diamond, set to be released on May 27, 2022.

The single is available to DJs and radio programmers on AirPlay Direct or by request to DSR Radio contact, Jana Mougin: [email protected]
