music stars such as Ronnie McDowell, Hank Thompson, Narvel Felts,and others as an opening act. Along with her singing and songwriting talents, Laurie plays rhythm guitar and has performed at opry style shows, with bands, at various fairs, and as a solo act around Florida.

Laurie started writing songs in the 90â€™s; hoping to be able to record them someday. In June of 2000 Laurie decided to pursue her life long dream of recording her own album.
Under the direction of veteran producer/engineer Bobby Croft (owner of Grey Area Studio in Umatilla, Florida), Laurieâ€™s album titled â€œLittle Townâ€ was completed in October, 2001. Eight of the songs on the â€œLittle Townâ€ album were written by Laurie McCann. â€œWe Were Meant To Beâ€ and â€œLook At You Nowâ€ were co-written with her sister Patty Buzze.
The title song â€œLittle Townâ€ boasts about the social life of Laurieâ€™s hometown of Lake Pasnasoffkee, Florida, however the lyrics play to all small towns that dot the American scene. â€œDaddyâ€™s Storeâ€ is a nostalgic recall of when Laurieâ€™s father had to close his beloved business, Harvleyâ€™s Appliances, after 51 years of service to the community. The song â€œOver Thereâ€ is a tribute to all our past, present, and future veterans who have fought for the everyday freedoms we enjoy. McCannâ€™s collection of original country music is being played on country radio stations around Florida.
Laurie McCann is currently working on another album in collaboration with her sister Patty Buzze . This album includes songs written by her parents Tom & Patty Harvley as well as songs written by Laurie and her sister Patty.
