Update from the Slaughters

Shannon and Heather Slaughter & County ClareWe heard this week from Shannon Slaughter, with an update on his and Heather’s upcoming band project, and some major milestones in their personal lives.

Shannon tells us that the new album, from Shannon and Heather Slaughter & County Clare, will be titled One More Road, and is due from Elite Circuit Music in March. Of the 14 tracks, 8 are written or co-written by Slaughter. Other writers include Heather Slaughter, Shawn Lane, Dale Felts, Mike Bentley, Terry Foust, and Rodney Crowell.

On the home front, Shannon reports that he and Heather have moved into their new home in Pell City, AL where he continues to teach U.S. History and coach football at St. Clair County High School. Both of them have completed Masters degrees (Shannon in Gifted Education and Heather in Special Education), and they have recently found out that they are expecting.

Sounds like a busy year in the Slaughter household – a new CD in March and a new baby in September!

Here’s a taste of their second single, especially pertinent this year.


The debut single, The Lives Of The Innocents, is available to radio programmers now from Airplay Direct.
