Debut single from Amanda Fields

fieldsAmanda Fields has released a debut single from her upcoming EP, a lovelorn ballad she wrote with former AKUS bassist John Pennell called Sad Eyed Blue Ridge Girl.

Based now in Nashville, Amanda can lay claim to the Blue Ridge Girl moniker, as she was raised in the mountains of Virginia, and calls Wise County home. The sad eyes you’ll have to decide for yourself.

She is finishing up her EP of all original material now at Sidekick Sound Studios in Nashville, with Mark Thornton engineering. The single features her on guitar and vocals, with assistance from Dustin Benson on guitar, Tim Crouch on mandolin and fiddle, and John Pennell on bass.


The completed EP is expected by the middle of December, but Sad Eyed Blue Ridge Girl is available now for sale online. Radio programmers can download the track from Airplay Direct.

You can find out more about Amanda on her web site or Facebook page.
