Girl Talk with Laura Bell Bundy
Trading Broadway Musicals for Nashville, the Singer, 29, Gets Playful with Her New Album Achin' and Shakin'
I learned a lot from Elle. That's when I started to be true to myself and honest with others.
• AT 11, YOU HAD BRITNEY SPEARS AND NATALIE PORTMAN AS UNDERSTUDIES IN RUTHLESS! THE MUSICAL.
Britney was quiet and sweet. Natalie and I had sleepovers, played dress up and made prank calls. She's been to my [Broadway] shows.
• WHICH MUSICAL HEROES DID YOU CHANNEL ON YOUR ALBUM?
My Achin' country ballads are the love child of Loretta Lynn and Otis Redding. And on the Shakin' side, I was going for a country Amy Winehouse.
• AS A KENTUCKY GIRL IN NEW YORK, WHAT WAS LIFE LIKE?
You see just how southern you are and appreciate it. I avoided a debutante ball, I like gentlemen, and I want my own country music variety show-bring Hee Haw back!
