Sultry smokey singer-songwriter Lanie Lane will be bringing her sassy style of blues-jazz-pop to the football field on Saturday the 14th of July.

Thanks to the AFL’s Live at the Footy program Lanie Lane will perform before the Geelong v Collingwood clash at the MCG as well as providing half time entertainment. The grand final rematch will be soundtracked by the songs from her debut album “To The Horses”.

The past 12 months have been the stuff of dreams for Lanie, with pretty much everything a girl could reasonably wish for coming true. In no particular order these include: recording her “Ain’t Hungry” single with Jack White in Nashville; signing with Ivy League Records; seeing her debut album To The Horses enter the ARIA charts at #12; playing her first sold out national tour plus slots on a string of top notch festivals; gracing the covers of countless quality publications; tours of the US and UK; winning the FBI SMAC Awards for Record of the Year, and perhaps most importantly, having the time of her life whilst doing it all

Live at the Footy is a joint project between the AFL and Radar Music that aims to support and showcase Australian artists, and build on the natural link between Australia’s game and Australian music. Live at the Footy is also supported by Triple M, Channel 7 and Frontier Events.

AFL General Manager Strategy and Marketing Andrew Catterall said: “Throughout the season so far we have had some great Australian acts on stage at the MCG and Etihad Stadium. We are proud to be able give an artist like Lanie Lane the opportunity to perform in front of 80,000 people on Saturday night and at the same time giving footy fans a chance to see such an exciting emerging Australian performer live at the footy”.

Lanie Lane’s To the Horses album is out now through Ivy League.
