Over here at Raised Rowdy we absolutely love music that lives a little left of center. Things that when you hear them, they stick out and put a smile on your face – a song or sound that makes you pay attention. That is exactly what happened when we first heard a clip of Royale Lynn’s new single “Runs in the Water”.

Royale Co-penned the track with Elysse Yulo, Nell Maynard & Autumn Buysse, but the song they came up with that day (while having pretty classic country lyrics) ended up evolving into something different.
“I’ve always been heavily influenced by bands such as A Day To Remember, Avril Lavigne and Nickelback but I thought I would have to hide my love for those genres because I wanted to write Country Music. But over the last few years, I started to realize that I could write about growing up in the middle of nowhere and while using punk characteristics… that’s when we started creating ‘Punktry’,” Royale told us.
Over here at Raised Rowdy we love us some music that we affectionately call Butt-Rock (Nickelback, Creed, Seether, 3 Doors Down, etc.), and this definitely gives us those vibes in spades. The production has rock drums and guitar.
We have been fans of Royale’s for a while (she played our first ever event in Nashville) and it is great get to see artists’ sounds evolve. We can’t wait to hear even more from Royale and what she terms as “Punktry.”
So without further ado. this is “Runs In The Water.”
Whether it’s a backroad or a rock show, music is the soundtrack to our lives and we hope y’all find something here that helps keep your heads bopping and puts a smile on your face. Music is always changing and we think that the Country genre is about to have some major genre-blending things happening. Get ready for a Rock revolution and it’s coming for you from the Nashville and Texas music scenes.
