Lindsay Broughton will be heading up the BVJ Warm Up at Knoxville's Tavern in Edmonton July 23 and playing the BVJ main stage at 1 p.m. on July 29.

Award-winning country music singer Lindsay Broughton will be the headlining artist in the Rising Stars of Country Music show at Festival Hall Centre for the Arts in Pembroke on Saturday, April 25 at 7:30 p.m.

Known as much for her unforgettably captivating and foot-stomping live performances as well as her heartfelt and soulful lyrics, Brooklin, Ontario native Lindsay Broughton has carved her way in to the minds of Canadian country aficionados as one of the most accomplished and talented young musicians to watch out for.  

Initially gaining inspiration from her mother, also a country singer, Broughton began performing at a very young age. She was well and truly bit by the bug in high school when she learned to play the guitar and joined the local songwriting club. As part of a field trip, she visited the capital of country music itself Nashville, Tennessee where her eyes were immediately opened to the possibilities that country music could bring to her. Arriving back to Brooklin, excited by her Nashville trip, she was more determined than ever to hone her craft and pursue a career in music. 

And pursue it she did. In just a few short years Lindsay Broughton has established herself as one of the most accomplished newcomers in Canadian country music. Winner of a Country Music Association of Ontario Rising Star Award and having her self-titled EP rise to #1 on the best selling Canadian country album charts in Canada in 2013, Broughton is just getting started. With the release of her debut full-length album "Take Me There," with her single tracks, "Take Me There" and "Stay With Me" having seen considerable success on the music charts and with the music video for "Take Me There" being played on CMT Canada, Broughton's gritty, inspiring blend of music is sure to get toes tapping and hands clapping.

Currently she has just released an Internet-only music video for the song "Heart to Break." The song's theme fits in well with the album as a whole, which centres around the cycle we have all gone through at some point - love, loss, and redemption. "Heart to Break" focuses on what happens when someone has been hurt so much, the only thing left to do is harden themselves so they can't be hurt anymore.
