Mila Mason Returns To The Artist Side of Things with "Run Like a Girl"

12 years after her last release, Mila Mason has returned with a brand new single on a new label called Plateau Music- and it is making some noise on the charts. "Run Like a Girl" made the jump from 129 on the Adult Contemporary chart to number 60 this week and some insiders believe that it could crack the key top 50 this coming week. Several country stations have added the new single as well. Mila's new CD is expected to be released in Late June of 2015. You can listen/watch the lyric video created for the single below.

Blake Mevis discovered Mason back in 1993. Known for producing recordings by George Strait, Vern Gosdin, and Keith Whitley, uncovered Mason and facilitated a record deal with Atlantic Records and then-Vice President Bryan Switzer. She made her debut on the country music scene in 1996 with the release of That’s Enough of That, which produced three hit singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. The title track cracked the Top 20 as did the follow-up single, “Dark Horse.” That album was followed by 1998’s The Strong One, from which two more singles were released; “Closer To Heaven” was a Top 30 single and the title track just cracked the list.

After her sophomore release, Mason left the label to focus on the two true passions of her life: songwriting and family. She would release one more album in 2003 on the independent Twinbeat Records called Stained Glass Window. Numerous artists took those songs and added them to their own albums in the 90’s. But during that window of time between records two and three, she crossed paths with cousins Gary LeVox and Jay DeMarcus. She introduced the guys to producers Marty Williams and Mark Bright and the rest is history with Rascal Flatts. The discovery of the super-group set Mason on a new path of working with new artists and songwriters in Nashville. A decade after that discovery, she is still doing that work today.
