‘Game Changer’

Jim Lauderdale’s New Album

Out August 26, 2022

Urbane Americana/country songwriter, singer and host Jim Lauderdale kicks off Game Changer – his 35th full-length album – with the first single “That Kind Of Life (That Kind Of Day)” a rollicking ode to what Jim calls “the sentiment and wishes for others to have a good life.” Lauderdale had the instrumental twin guitar/steel hook in his head when he sat down to write the song.

“For some reason, the first line – ‘When a baby tastes a little bit of sunshine, kicks their legs and bounces up and down, Grins and laughs and everything is so fine, We wanna keep em’ that way for a while’ – just tumbled out, I wasn’t really sure where it was going but that image popped into my head and I went with it”

In addition to the news of Lauderdale’s new album, he’s also just been named a 2022 nominee for the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Lauderdale, along with eleven other of his contemporaries, will be celebrated at the Songwriters Hall of Fame Gala in October where the Class of 2022 Hall of Fame inductees will be announced.

Operating under his own label, Sky Crunch Records, for the first time since 2016, Lauderdale recorded Game Changer at the renowned Blackbird Studios in Nashville, co-producing the release with Jay Weaver and pulling from songs he’d written over the last several years. “There’s a mixture on this record of uplifting songs and, at the same time, songs of heartbreak and despair—because that’s part of life as well,” he says. “In the country song world especially, that’s always been part of it. That’s real life.”  The album also includes a co-write with Mary Gauthier and Jaimee Harris.
