The title of newcomer Cam’s debut LP, Untamed, couldn’t be more appropriate. After making a splash with her frisky single “My Mistake,” the California transplant is taking her haunting summer scorcher, “Burning House,” all the way to the Grammys—it’s up for Best Solo Country Performance. And the rest of the record, which dropped in December, is just as eclectic. “My album starts off with the sound of the bugs singin’ on a warm Tennessee summer night,” Cam says. “It’s a bonfire party in the woods, in our own world, with our own rules—being ourselves and being free.” camcountry.com
