Terra Lightfoot "Norma Gale"
Published Sep 29, 2017After delivering an orchestral live album earlier this year, Terra Lightfoot is busy gearing up for her upcoming album New Mistakes. And while we've already hears its "Paradise," Lightfoot is now giving us the new track "Norma Gale."
As Lightfoot explained, the song was inspired "after meeting a Canadian woman named Norma Gale who was a near-famous country star in the 1970s. She played all over the world but specifically had a great following in Nashville, played with Loretta Lynn, Charlie Pride, Waylon Jennings, and Conway Twitty."
She continued, "The song chronicles the life of Norma as a musician in the '70s, and trying to bring up her young son while she's gunning for sustainable success. I kept in touch with Norma and her son and let them know when I finally made it to Nashville to do some writing, but unfortunately she had passed away two weeks earlier."

As previously reported, New Mistakes will arrive through Sonic Unyon Records on October 13. You can see all her upcoming tour dates here.
