Thursday Night, new country artist Shelly Rann plays at Birds in Concert!
Join us on Thursday, August 18th, from 7pm – 8:30pm to enjoy Raptor Project music, followed by the new Nashville-signed country artist, Shelly Rann.
Shelly Rann is a charismatic performer with natural beauty, genuine charm and a sense of humor that immediately endears her to audiences everywhere. In her young career, Shelly has had her songs featured on the NBC network award-winning prime time shows The West Wing and Third Watch. In addition, Shelly has shared the stage with Vince Gill, Trace Adkins, and Alabama, and has performed on the Capital Lawn for the President of the United States and 20,000 others to honor fallen officers at the National Fraternal Order of Police Memorial Service.
Shelly is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky. Following in the footsteps of many legendary performers from the Bluegrass state, she moved to Nashville to pursue her musical career. Her songwriting talent and uniquely gifted voice quickly caught the attention of the Nashville songwriting community and she has collaborated with some of the very best writers including Gary Burr (Christina Aguilera), Kent Blazy (Garth Brooks), Larry Cordle (Alison Krauss), and Mark Nesler (Tim McGraw). Her songs are introspective, and reflect her life experiences casting her as a true artist. As one of Nashville’s first call session singers she possesses one of the most beautiful, passionate, and expressive voices in music today.
Shelly has recently finished “Afterwords”, her first major studio album produced by Henry Paul of the multi-platinum country group BlackHawk and Dale Oliver (Bucky Covington), writing 9 of the 11 songs. This highly anticipated album is now available at Amazon.com and on iTunes.
