Discover: Amanda Shires Fiddles With Our Hearts

View Comments

Prior to getting settled in her own “solo” world, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Amanda Shires [/lastfm]spent time working on her musical skills in both [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Thrift Store Cowboys [/lastfm]and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Texas Playboys[/lastfm]. She recently released her third album Carrying Lightning, which again blends her lyrical, vocal, fiddle/violin and ukulele talents. (I personally like her choice to cover [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Barbara Keith[/lastfm]’s “Detroit Or Buffalo). Heck, maybe you even spotted her as one of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Gwyneth Paltrow [/lastfm]’s bandmates in the film Country Strong. Recently she and a guy who has his own strong career going as well, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rod Picott [/lastfm]stopped by our studio for a Discover session.
