After less than a year in Nashville, singer-songwriter McKenzie Lockhart made her way back to Florence, Alabama, ten minutes away from her hometown of Muscle Shoals.
“I thought moving was what I had to do to really ‘make it,’ but I was absolutely miserable,” she says. “I missed my small town. I missed my church, my family. I missed home.”
The return home came with a new passion for the creative community that has been cultivated in Florence, as well as the motivation to make music on her own terms. This newfound motivation resulted in her second EP, Suburbs, which released February 23, 2018. Produced by her husband and recorded in their first home as a married couple, Suburbs examines the ideas of faith, relationships, and the pursuit of music.
