New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Maven Recording artist, Shari Rowe is back again with the new esoteric single, "Southern Spells." The alluring tale kicks off with a live performance on KGUN Channel 9's Tucson's Morning Blend May 18 in Tucson, Arizona. The single will be released to all digital formats on Monday, May 22 and will be available for fans to preorder May 12.
A bewitching acoustic guitar riff begins the track and sets the tone for the raw power to follow in the tune. Listeners will hear Shari Rowe's familiar bluegrass and classic country elements, but she brings an edgier, more outlaw country vibe to "Southern Spells." The band incorporates all of the proper elements of a Western-style groove with a squealing fiddle filling in where the vocals rest. The song tells a cryptic tale of a charming yet deceitful Southern Belle, sending out a warning to those she encounters, saying "you will recognize that look in her eyes and you'll know, you better look away, you better run."
"'Southern Spells' is one of my favorite songs to play live, and I cannot wait to bring that energy to country radio," says Rowe. "It was such a fun song to write and is definitely a fan favorite at every show." The energy of a live performance truly is captured within this song with passionate, spell-binding vocals backed by a solid foundation of talented musicians.
"Southern Spells" follows the successful release of "Take That Shot," a tune cowritten by Rowe, which led to a social media kindness campaign. The two tracks were produced by Grammy award-winning studio The Rukkus Room (Justin Moore, Thomas
Rhett), and feature a stellar, all-star lineup of some of Nashville's best musicians, including Jimmy Mattingly on fiddle (Garth Brooks, Keith Urban), Jimmy Nichols on keys (Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill), Tommy Harden on drums (Reba McEntire, Blake
Shelton), Joeie Canaday on bass (Keith Urban, Cam) and Steven Sheehan on acoustic guitar (Trisha Yearwood, Alabama).
