New Single: Terra Lightfoot, “Norma Gale”

Terra Lightfoot

JUNO Award nominated songwriter Terra Lightfoot is sharing another track from her forthcoming album, “New Mistakes” – a song which Lightfoot considers to be her first ‘songwriter’s song.’ “Norma Gale” was inspired “after meeting a Canadian woman named Norma Gale who was a near-famous country star in the 1970s,” says Lightfoot. “She played all over the world but specifically had a great following in Nashville, played with Loretta Lynn, Charlie Pride, Waylon Jennings, and Conway Twitty. The song chronicles the life of Norma as a musician in the ’70s, and trying to bring up her young son while she’s gunning for sustainable success. I kept in touch with Norma and her son and let them know when I finally made it to Nashville to do some writing, but unfortunately she had passed away two weeks earlier.”

You can preorder “New Mistakes” (available 13 October) from your independent record store or from the following sites/platforms:
