Hot off the back of winning ‘Female Artist Of The Year’ at the recent Golden Guitar Awards as well as being inducted into the Galaxy of Stars at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, Amber Lawrence drops her fifth single Rise, a collaboration with Casey Donovan, from her acclaimed album, Living For The Highlights. 

Rise is a blues-tinged song reminding us that we all have good and bad days, but with the help of friends and loved ones you can rise up and overcome whatever obstacles are in your way, ‘when you can find the rain in rainbows, you can change your mind, and rise’!

The title and lyrics epitomise both Amber and Casey’s resilience and perseverance in their respective careers and personal lives, with both in the most amazing space of their lives.

Amber says, “Rise is a powerhouse song vocally, and the inspiring lyric of this song was best shared with two voices, so I couldn’t have dreamed up anyone better to sing with than the amazing Casey Donovan. She’s an incredible singer, artist and person, and I'm just so proud of the musical moment we’ve achieved together with Rise.”

Out officially on February 3, Countrytown brings you the music video today in this premiere exclusive. It's our Song of the Day! Watch the video below!
