The Highway Queen Tour Rocks Stagecoach, KCRW, and CONAN

Nikki Lane is off to a hot start for her 2017 Highway Queen tour. The international tour has won over hearts at the Stagecoach Festival, as well as listeners on major radio and television stations.

Her blending of affection and rebellion within music creates a special dichotomy. The Nashville-based country singer produces a soulful mix of alternative California country rock. Brandi Carlile is from Seattle, but reminds me of Nikki Lane’s spirit.


There is a revolution taking place in the music industry with a large influx of strong women leading the pack.

Preview ‘Jackpot’ performed live on CONAN. Also check out that track and ‘Send The Sun’ from KCRW in Los Angeles. Browse over upcoming international tour dates for the Highway Queen tour.
