“We are thrilled to be working with Kerry. She is an outstanding singer, songwriter & musician.” – J.K. Coltrain – Colt Records | Nashville
NASHVILLE, TN (03 MARCH 2014) – Songs to Sing and Tales to Tell is Kerry Wallace’s début album. However, don’t let the word “début” fool you. Kerry has nurtured this bumper crop of compositions since early childhood. Now, with fourteen tracks, Wallace is finding chart success with her bountiful blend of heartfelt, authentic Americana and country songs – all ripe and ready for radio!
Songs to Sing and Tales to Tell has been a life-long project for Wallace, who’s spent years living in rural Wyoming raising everything from livestock to crops – as well as a family. The album features an imitable incarnation of her own compositions juxtaposed against some of her favorite cover songs and traditional selections to which she is sentimentally attached.
“This album was an intensely personal project for me as there are several songs on it that I was taught as a child,” states Wallace. These include a cover of Tom T. Hall’s “Don’t Forget the Coffee Billy Jo,” as well as “Til’ I Gain Control Again” – originally written and recorded by Rodney Crowell and performed by Emmylou Harris. Wallace’s version of the traditional classic “Bury Me Beneath the Willow” became her first charting song in early 2014, rising to number fourteen in the well-respected Americana charts of the Roots Music Report.
However, the real gems on Songs to Sing and Tales to Tell are Wallace’s three original offerings, which include “Love Rains Down,” “Alone Again” and “Cold Wind Blowin’.” Kerry released the first single off the album, “Love Rains Down,” in late 2013 with the help of Nashville’s J.K. Coltrain’s Colt Records. During 2014 Wallace expects to officially release “Alone Again” as well as “Cold Wind Blowin’” to radio. All three of the original tunes show Wallace’s ability as a songwriter to take the listener on an introspective journey.
Kerry Wallace sums it up best, “I want the listener to feel my heartfelt conviction, passion and sensitivity when I sing so they experience it like they were living it. Which many are!” Within Songs to Sing and Tales to Tell is an amazingly authentic adventure in real, Americana and country music. Kerry Wallace has carefully cultivated her bumper crop of compositions and it is starting to pop up in rows – perhaps soon, even Music Row?
