  • Vices and relationships are the theme of Achin' and Shakin', which is the second album from the stage actress who has appeared in productions of Hairspray and Wicked. In our interview with Laura Bell Bundy, she admitted, "The time I was in my life was the time where I was coming into my own and I stopped judging myself for trying these things, and for making mistakes. Yeah, I wrote a song called 'Bourbon and Boys Give Me the Blues.' Yes, I've gotten too drunk off of bourbon."
