Waylon Jennings, Sarah Marince articles
- View SourceGreetings,
In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever <http://www.perfectsoundforever.com>, you'll find (among other things):
The story of "Honky Tonk Heroes"
"On the face of it, the story sounds apocryphal. An unknown songwriter named Billy Joe Shavers is hanging out pulling guitars with friends when a country music legend, Waylon Jennings, hears him singing and announces on the spot that he wants to make an entire album of Shavers's songs. The record that finally gets made is an enormous hit, and signals a sea-change in the way albums get made in Nashville."
A great new country voice
"Marince has opened concerts for such singers as Lonestar and Gretchan Wilson, Tricia Yearwood, Taylor Swift and Jake Owens.
Sarah was also invited to perform at the South by Southwest Music (SXSW) Festival. There she opened for Rachel Fuller and Pete Townsend. Sarah has a beautiful voice, so it was no surprise that she was offered these invitations to open for these shows and probably why she also sings The National Anthem regularly at the Pittsburg Steelers, Pirates and Penguins games."
