Take classic Country, mix in some southern Rock and you have the perfect blend of LiveWire's new album Livin'.
The album is packed with a very powerful mix of songs about living, loving and heartache. I don't think LiveWire could have followed up their debut album any better than this.
Well written lyrics, strong vocals and catchy songs that each seems to tell it's own story, from “Livin” — a song about being young and in love, growing together though life and settling down; to “Lies,” a song that has you memorizing every word and singing it over and over again because it's ability for many to relate about the break-up experience.
LiveWire has often been referred to as one of the best live bands in the circuit, they have received airplay on CMT pure, finalists in the 2009 Colgate Country Showdown and have graced the stage of the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
After a brief break, LiveWire came back with a new vision, energized and ready to merge to the top. There is no doubt that this a band to watch closely, Country Music at it's finest, I definitely see this band well on their way to much deserved success.

Since forming in the mid-'90s, LiveWire has forged a reputation as one of the top-draw live acts in the Midwest by regularly packing venues in the band's home state of Missouri and in the surrounding states of Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas. Along the way, this homegrown talent has taken the members of the sextet across America opening for Country superstars including Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Montgomery Gentry, Diamond Rio and Kix Brooks. The group experienced a brush with the “big time” as finalists in the 2009 Colgate Country Showdown. LiveWire released a self-titled EP in 2011 which included the group's debut radio single,
“Tater Fed,” a stirring backwoods rocker that quickly became the band's anthem. After signing with Way Out West Records in late 2011, LiveWire released a video for “Tater Fed” and a benefit single and video of “Miracle Of The Human Spirit,” which benefitted the group's tornado-ravaged hometown of Joplin, MO. LiveWire's music has found success at Country radio, both in the U.S. and in Europe, and its videos have received airplay on CMT Pure, The Country Network, Yallwire and other outlets.
