About Laura Bell Bundy
Broadway's beauty becomes Nashville's darling (Updated January 2, 2013)
Laura Bell Bundy has done it all. From the Broadway stage, to various film and TV roles, to her time under country music's Mercury Records label, the actress and singer accomplished more in her first 30 years than most seasoned performers do in a lifetime.
Born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, Bundy originated the lead role of Elle Woods in the Broadway Musical "Legally Blonde." Next came her turn as Amber Von Tussle in "Hairspray" and the coveted role of "Glinda" in the smash-hit "Wicked." But amidst the bright lights of New York City, Bundy found another love. She performed on the nationally televised Academy of County Music Awards and found another career path that led straight through Nashville.
Bundy released her debut country album, "Longing for a Place Already Gone," in the summer of 2007, but it barely registered. Three years later came the single "Giddy On Up," which peaked at a modest number 31 on the Billboard Hot County Songs chart. It was followed by "Drop On By," which managed a climb to only No. 48. Both were part of the sophomore album, "Achin' and Shakin'," which bowed on April 13, 2010. It debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and No. 28 on the all-genre Billboard 200.
"That's What Angels Do," the first single from Bundy's upcoming third album, released to country radio in 2012. The song was selected as part of Supercuts Rock The Cut national TV campaign which aired on various TV networks throughout the end of the year.
