To continue to celebrate the release of her sophomore album Cigarettes & Truckstops, acclaimed Nashville-based artist Lindi Ortega is set to embark on a nationwide solo tour in 2013. Full details on reverse. Ortega has toured extensively throughout 2011-2012, opening for acts like Social Distortion, Dierks Bentley, and James Vincent McMorrow.

Cigarettes & Truckstops, the highly anticipated follow-up album from the singer-songwriter is available now on Last Gang Records. The record has already garnered attention at Triple A Radio as #5 most added at Americana, with Billboard hailing it "heartfelt and mood-inducing, a uniquely bluesy twist on pre-outlaw country."

Recently Ortega appeared on Episode 6 of ABC's new hit series "Nashville" performing the first single off the record "The Day You Die" with her band. The video for the track, which premiered on CMT Pure channel and CMT Edge, can be viewed here. The new video for "Cigarettes & Truckstops," that Ortega filmed on her iPhone, is out now here.

Cigarettes & Truckstops, which follows Ortega's JUNO award-nominated debut album, Little Red Boots, was largely inspired by Ortega's move to Nashville from her hometown, Toronto, bringing her closer to the Origins of many of her influences, including Hank Williams. By reading a biography of Williams, Ortega discovered his mentor Rufus "Tee-Tot" Payne, the street performer who taught Williams to play guitar. This sparked Ortega's interest in the influence of blues on early country-a Fascination that comes through strongly on the record. Ortega brought on praised producer and T-Bone Burnett musician Colin Linden (O Brother Where Art Thou, Lucinda Williams, Bruce Cockburn) for the project when she found that he shared her interest in blues and The Roots of country music.

In addition to launching Metric, Death From Above 1979, MSTRKRFT and Crystal Castles, the label has combined successfully with LIGHTS, Chromeo, The New Pornographers, K-OS, Boys Noize and Tiga on varied licensing deals.
