Internationally acclaimed artist Amy Sheppard is packaging up her pop stylings and fusing them with country influences, today releasing her debut solo single Nothing But Wild. While definitely not her first official foray into the genre, previously already a Golden Guitar Award winner for her vocals on Lee Kernaghan’s Spirit of the Anzacs, Nothing But Wild offers an up-tempo and affably jangly stomper that fans can also catch in action this weekend at the Toyota Tamworth Country Music Festival and KIX Live in the Park, as well as CMC Rocks QLD later this year.
The first time I heard slow burn by Kacey Musgraves I was blown away. It was one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Kacey has a very authentic and modern way of writing country music. I her attitude, aesthetics and song writing very captivating.
I grew up listening to the Eagles. They’ve had a huge impact on the way I songwrite. Their story telling, their hauntingly beautiful harmonies and their legendary songs are something I will forever strive towards.
The way Taylor Swift has blended the country and pop world is second to none. Her extremely personal lyrics, attention to detail and love for her fans shines through and makes her so relatable.
As part of Sheppard, I had the absolute privilege to tour with Keith Urban. It was a dream come true and he certainly lived up to the hype. He was professional, talented and so kind. His music will always hold a special place for me.
She’s the queen, what more can I say! She’s fun, she’s talented, she’s fabulous. A true icon.
