Opening for Diamond Rio will be Lawton’s own Cori Emmett.  She just released her first studio album on May 3rd recorded in Nashville at “Alex the Great Studio”. The album titled “Released” paints contemporary country with an assortment of flavors from fun nights out, relationship revenge, to break ups and new found love. This album has songs written from some of the top writers in Nashville. It blends powerhouse vocals and well-written music tracks that “SCREAM” radio play.
