“Shelly’s Winter Love” is a beautiful, calming track from the bluegrass group, the Lonesome River Band. The band members show off their skills on bass, mandolin, guitar, and fiddle while bandleader, Sammy Shelor’s vocals retain a sweetness, purity, and lightness like that of Vince Gill’s voice. This is one of my favorite tracks off of their new album, Turn On A Dime, because the crying melodies on the fiddle combined with the bitter story of a woman who only comes around during the winter gives the song a cold, stormy feel. Listen below for this sad, somber tune.
My name is Alexa, and I am from Nashville, Tennessee. For this fall term, I am studying in central London through a program with my college, the University of North Carolina. My favorite type of music is country, but I also love various forms of many genres including rock, hip-hop, alternative, r&b, americana, folk and pop. My dream is to someday work in the country music industry as a songwriter. I have loved getting to know this wonderful city and am looking forward to experiencing the music culture of London and to working at We Plug Good Music.
