Sincerely Blue from Shannon Wright

Melton & Miller Music has a new single for Shannon Wright, who though she may be new to the bluegrass market, is an experienced singer and songwriter of nearly twenty years’ tenure.

Living now in Nashville, Shannon is a Georgia native who released a couple of records of original country music written with her husband, Adam Wright. The pair met cute, when Adam filled in on a show with her band back home in Georgia. Adam is also a cousin of country superstar Alan Jackson, who has recorded a number of their songs on his projects. Shannon’s songs have also been cut by Balsam Range and Special Consensus.

Her new bluegrass single is also a Wright and Wright composition, Sincerely Blue, a lonesome, mid-tempo grasser of lost love and heartbreak which she sings with a distinctly mountain sound. Wright is supported here by Milan Miller on guitar, Seth Taylor on mandolin and banjo, Tim Crouch on fiddle, and Buddy Melton on bass. Miller adds the harmony vocals on the track.

It’s a fine introduction to the world of bluegrass.

Have a listen in this lyric video.

Sincerely Blue is available now from popular download and streaming sites online. The single is available to radio programmers via AirPlay Direct.
