Amanda Shires is renowned for her carefully crafted, evocative songs. Her influences include Leonard Cohen and John Prine, the latter a mentor. Amanda says she uses songwriting as a way to “get through my own emotional stuff, which is cheaper than a therapist.” We had her on our radar well before she married Jason Isbell, and we’ve always liked her introspective, lightly country- and Americana-flavored songs. Amanda sounds a bit like Dolly Parton, which is always good, and she’s been a commercial role since she co-founded country supergroup The Highwomen in 2019. It’s been a few years since Amanda’s last studio album, “To the Sunset,” and we are eagerly looking forward to hearing her latest material.
