“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result,” Albert Einstein is often misquoted as saying.

Basically, if you always do what you’ve always done, you always get what you’ve always gotten, and that is the quandry Laine Lonero finds herself in on her new single, ‘Trouble.’

The follow-up to her recent release ‘Broke’, 'Trouble' was co-written with Justin Williams and Ryan Scott Smith; a love song that knows it shouldn’t be doing what it’s doing but keeps on doing it anyway.

"It’s actually about me and the stupid decisions I make,” Laine explains. “That day, I walked in and pitched the idea to Justin and Ryan about always getting myself in trouble. I think the best way to describe the inspiration is that I cannot seem to learn from my mistakes. I definitely have a type, and continuing to fall for the same type of guy has not served me well in the long run.”

She knows how it’s going to end as soon as one of those types walks into the bar she’s in, and she immediately begins second guessing herself and getting herself in to the same old crazy mess she always does.

Taking its cues from Maren Morris’ distinct brand of playful, R&B-infused country pop, ‘Trouble’ is powered by a wheezing synth groove, big drums and an even bigger chorus. It’s a soul record in the most literal sense from one of Nashville’s brightest up-and-coming stars.

“I am hoping that this song resonates with listeners who have been in the same situation. Hopefully, one day, I’ll make the right choice for all the right reasons.”

‘Trouble’ is premiering exclusively on Holler below.

Born and raised in The Pelican State of Louisiana, Laine grew up performing in musical theatre and opera, penning her first song when she was just 12. She went on to win the Nashville Dreamin' songwriting contest for her original ‘The Little Girl in Me,’ inspired by her grandmother's battle with cancer.

In 2016, Laine caught the attention of Kidz Bop producers who featured her on four CDs, while Radio Disney Country supported her debut single ‘No Sweat.’ Laine currently resides in Nashville, where she attends Belmont University's prestigious songwriting program.

Laine Lonero - or Lai-Lo as we're now calling her - is well on the way to being the Gen Z pop country artist to watch out for.

'Trouble' is released on July 28th.
