There is a fearlessness about Nikki Lane that is both refreshing and inspiring. She has called herself "the First Lady of Outlaw Country" and has received well-earned comparisons to Wanda Jackson and Loretta Lynn over the last few years. But this vintage clothing expert turned musician, who has spent time in New York City, Los Angeles and now Nashville, has a modern, brazen approach all her own.

Releasing her third album (and her second for New West Records), Lane joined us in Studio A to share a couple of new songs, and she also told us about adding the album and title of Highway Queen to her name.
