Outlaw country music queen and fashion icon Nikki Lane will bring her swagger to the MSU Riley Center for a 7 p.m. concert on Thursday, Aug. 8.

Tickets are $20-$65 and available at msurileycenter.com.

Lane, a singer-songwriter and the 2018 Ameripolitan Music Awards winner in the Outlaw Female category, has released four albums, including her 2017 breakthrough, “Highway Queen.” She has also been featured on “Breaking Up Slowly” with Lana Del Rey on Del Rey’s 2021 album “Chemtrails over the Country Club.” She and Del Rey co-wrote the song.

For her most recent LP, 2022’s “Denim & Diamonds,” Lane enlisted Joshua Homme, leader of the rock band Queens of the Stone Age, as producer. The roots-music journal “No Depression” applauded the result: “Her brash kiss-offs, lovelorn pleas and plenty of that good old-fashioned American grit come out to play with producer Homme’s thrashing rock and roll sensibility – a deliciously satisfying combo.”

Lane has built popularity through live performances, winning over audiences across the country with the authenticity at the heart of such hit songs as “Right Time,” “Jackpot,” “First High” and “Denim & Diamonds.”

She is also known for her retro-inspired stage outfits, as chronicled in her Instagram feed. She has her own vintage-clothing boutique in Nashville, Tennessee called High Class Hillbilly.

Her life experiences, good and bad, come out in her music, with online music publication “Pitchfork” stating, “She sings with the authority and weariness of someone who’s been through the wringer, the cool insistence of her voice giving her an air of earned wisdom.”
