When did you decide that a career in music was for you?

I decided music was for me back in 2016, but before that, I wasn’t sure if such a thing was possible!


Who are your musical inspirations and why?

I don’t have people as inspiration per se, just genres themselves since I grew up on such a variety of music. 


Can you tell me 3 things about yourself that people might not already know?

I like to have fun, I work hard, and i consider myself an expert whistler 


What song of yours best describes you and why?

“Drunk Off You” ,definitely because I feel this is the song that I wasn’t afraid to push the boundary with my music! 


What has been the best gig you have done to date and why?

Farm Aid, I was able to express myself through original music and I learned so much 


If you could perform a gig at any venue where would it be and why?

Right now, I have the dream of playing StageCoach. It’s the perfect right of passage for a country artist like myself. 


What has been your best achievement to date and what would you like to achieve in the future?

My biggest achievement so far is having my music be on CMT. That has been a dream for a while and it’s so cool that it’s now a reality 


Tell me a story from backstage or after a gig?

After my show at FarmAid, I wasn’t expecting so many people to come up to me and tell me how much they enjoyed my music. I was swarmed by people. It was really cool! 


What do you like best about being a musician and why?

The best part is doing live shows. Being able to help connect people through music is such a cool thing to experience 


If you were not in the job you are now what would you be doing?

I think I would be trying to find a way to do what I’m doing now, or perhaps acting. 

What has been the best gig you have been to as a fan and can you tell us about it?

Seeing Alicia Keys play was really cool. I am a sucker for stage sets and that concert had literally everything. I’d never seen anything like that before 


What would your ideal festival line up be and why?

Of course, I would want to be on the bill, but Tyler Hubbard, Sam Hunt, Chris Young, Lainey Wilson, and Chris Stapleton are a few artists that I would love to see and play with at a festival 


What would you say is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

Never stop even if someone tries to deter you. Keep going and follow your dreams, no matter how long it takes. 


What things make you happy and what things annoy you?

Being able to interact with like minded people that are following their dreams in and out of music is what makes me happy. 

Negativity is the thing that annoys me. 


What things do you like to do when you are away from music?

I like to go hiking! It’s so relaxing to me. 


Do you think social media and the internet are a good thing in the music industry?

I think it’s great! Though I try to be careful to not compare myself to others. It’s hard not to do sometimes, but all in all, I think it’s a great tool to use 


How important do you think your look and image is when it comes to being in the music industry?

I think it’s cool to stand out but at the same time, that look should reflect that individual. Otherwise, it won’t work in my opinion. That’s for me, at least. If I’m uncomfortable, it’ll show. 


Can you tell us about any tattoos you have and the significance of them to you?

I don’t have any tattoos, actually! 


If you run the country for a day what would you change about it and why?

That’s a loaded question, and I’ll sum it up with I wouldn’t dare try to run the country. 

I don’t think anyone could pay me enough for that kind of job. 

What would your ideal day consist of?

Write songs  during the day, do a gig at night, and still have time to relax at the end of the day. 


If you could say one thing to your fans what would it be and why?

Thank you! There is still a long way for me to go for me to get to where I want to be, but having true support makes me feel like I can get to where I need to be! 


How would you answer the question Who is Lori Rayne and what are the differences between you as a music artist and you away from music ?

There’s definitely “me” in my artistry, but Lori Rayne the artist makes me feel like I can be myself on another level apologetically 


What was the first record or song you purchased and why?

To be honest, I don’t remember. I remember the last CDs I bought were Daughtry and Nickelback from a Hot Topic 


What would say to someone thinking about becoming a musician and getting into the music industry?

I’d say do your research and learn to hear the word no a few times. Not everyone is going to like what you do, but don’t let that stop you. Keep doing what you do, because someone is going to like it and give you that “yes” you’re looking for! 


If you could collaborate with any other band/singer or musician who would you choose and why?

I have always wanted to collaborate with Tyler Hubbard. I feel like when he and Brian Kelley came out with FGL, it made it cool to incorporate so many sounds in country music  while also still being able to tell the story. 


If you could have written one song from history which would it have been and why?

There are so many songs that I love, but I don’t think I would have one that I wish I wrote. I would rather pull inspiration and create something fresh 


What things make you uncomfortable?



If you wrote a book about yourself what would it have in it? 

It would definitely be a book full of Lori Rayne’s random quotes. 


What has the rest of the year got in store for you?

This year is definitely a year of sowing seeds with songwriting and releasing new music
