When you are out there on the road and in the studio grinding throughout the year as a country artist, it can be rather hard to carve out time for the important things in life, such as marrying the love of your life.
Yet for country musician and two-time Canadian Country Music Awards Roots Artist of the Year Lindi Ortega, the fall season allowed her to take that special step to wed musician Daniel Huscroft at Storm Mountain Lodge near Moraine Lake in Alberta, Canada. Known for her distinctive dark wardrobe, the pictures show her looking downright ethereal in a vintage white lace gown.
It’s enough to take your breath away.
“Getting married is obviously huge life change,” says Ortega in a recent press release announcing the autumn ceremony. “When you’re in a that kind of deep, committed partnership with someone, you no longer function to serve only yourself. Now you have to function as a team. I think marriage can be a great lesson in selflessness if you allow it. I learn something new every day.”
The wedding was yet another bright spot in the life of Lindi, who is carving out quite a career in country music, having recently toured with Chris Stapleton, Dwight Yoakam and many others.
“It was really interesting, because before that [Stapleton] tour started, I played for a preschool. And when that tour ended, I play a house concert,” she says in a recent interview with Rolling Stone about being picked specifically by Chris to go out on tour with him. “I bookended it with real humbling experiences. At arena shows, it’s hard to create that intimacy with the crowd. You’re so separated from them.”
She also has big plans for 2018, including the release of new music and a North American tour that will have her on the road from January through early May. And while she will still be making plenty of stops in her native Canada, including Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec, Lindi has already gotten awfully cozy in Nashville. In fact, her much-anticipated album, set for release in 2018, was reportedly recorded at Battle Tapes Recording, a studio in East Nashville.
“There is a charm to the city, and that’s the reason I decided to stay,” she says of her Tennessee home in the Rolling Stone interview. “When I first moved there, it was like a city with a small-town charm. But it’s exploded … I’ve had condos go up in my backyard, side yard, everywhere.”
We know what you mean, Lindi.
Whatever lies ahead for this dynamic artist, we pray that it is fulfilling and filled with joy. Congrats to the happy couple!
