Fiona Culley Talks New Single “Act Like A Lady,” Upcoming EP, and Working with Darius Rucker

How often does an amazing British country artist come out with new music? Well, Fiona Culley has released her debut radio single, and we cannot get enough of it!

“Act Like A Lady” has a Carrie Underwood feel with Culley’s unique twist on it. The lyrics are absolutely genius and are so empowering to women by showing their equality and strength.

On top of releasing a new song, Culley recorded a duet with Darius Rucker called “Life On The Line,” which is the theme song for the new Lionsgate film starring John Travolta. Talk about a big deal!
