Blue Kentucky Girl Sings Bluegrass!
What do you get when you mix a commitment to traditional bluegrass with a background in Western Swing? A fiery redhead, bursting onto the bluegrass scene:
Shay began her musical journey playing in family members' bands and singing in church in Indiana and Kentucky. At a young age, she began learning the guitar to compliment her song-writing.
After playing in country and western bands for several years in Texas and learning the ropes of the music industry, Shay has developed her style into what she laughingly calls, Western Grass or some just call it blueSgrass! With a big nod to Emmy Lou Harris and a love of traditional bluegrass and the instrumentation of the genre, Shay is working on a new CD to be finished in fall 2006 which will please even the choosiest bluegrass fan!
As a seasoned songwriter, Shay has several songs that are in contention for major label cuts and is excited to be writing with some of the top writers in Nashville.
Shay is also looking to expand her playing in 2007 by adding many new festival events!
Featuring this performer during your festival will surely delight the fans! Set lists and photos are available to help promote your event. Shay will feature all the events at which she will be performing here on the site!
She will also be collecting stories/photos from the road to feature here!
