WATCH LOU RIDLEY PERFORM "DELIVERED" ON 'TODAY IN NASHVILLE'
Born in a small town right outside of Houston, Texas, now Nashville-based Lou Ridley has had a passionate affinity for music since her early childhood and attributes her creative inspiration to her strong Texas roots and upbringing. Her sound is refreshingly unique and draws from personal experiences of tragedy and triumph. She released her first single of 2021 titled “Hometown” which received praise from Houstonia Magazine, Sounds Like Nashville, and was placed on Spotify Fresh Finds Playlist. She released her debut EP cowgirls don't cry in 2019 which featured the soulful track “attention of any kind.” In addition to producing, performing, and writing, Ridley takes pride in being a human rights activist and lends her time to be in service to organizations that work with those struggling with substance abuse or homelessness and feels that being in service to others is her life's purpose. She aspires to lead by example and use her talents to break down doors for others and push past any boundaries of what is viewed as possible for female artists across the board.
