Nashville, TN (October 15, 2020) – Singer/Songwriter and verified TikTok star Holly Aunarecently released her new single “Lonely.” The song charted at #1 on iTunes less than 24 hours after its debut. You can listen to “Lonely” HERE!
With pensive lyrics like those aren’t my eyes I’m looking into, and my smile to me, is way too easy to see through, is it just me, ’cause everyone else seems to think, we’re everything happy people should be, Holly Auna reminds us with “Lonely” that things aren’t always what they seem.
“When I was in high school I wrote down the song idea I’m not alone, but I’m lonely and I held onto that idea for years,” Holly explains. “But, I think I had to really live it before I was able to write it. In 2017, I sat down with two of my best friends, Lydia Dall and Dan Kozlowski. We talked, we cried, we wrote. I don’t think I’ve ever been as honest as I was while writing this song and that’s probably why it is still my favorite song I’ve ever written. Ten years in the making, I’m glad Lonely is finally being released into the world.”
