The newest member of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, Michelle Wright delivers a robust seventeen-song live set featuring more than 67 minutes’ worth of engaging acoustic music.
The Wright Songs: An Acoustic Evening With Michelle Wright captures the magical essence of the more than 40 acoustic trio concerts Canadian country music star Michelle Wright performed in Canada during the past two years. Recently inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, Wright has chosen to spotlight songs from her CDs both old and new on this, her first live album. The Wright Songs features sparkling acoustic arrangements of many of Wright’s biggest hits, including her career-making smash, “Take It Like A Man,” the SOCAN–award winning “I Surrender,” her ground-breaking look at adoption, “He Would Be Sixteen,” her successful collaboration with pianist Jim Brickman, “Your Love,” and thirteen other fan favourites recorded at theatres in Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Olds, Alberta, at various times during 2009 and 2010.
A listen to The Wright Songs reveals Michelle in her element: remarkably at ease with her audience and comfortable with the melodies that have won her deserved recognition as one of Canada’s great vocal talents. Whether as an important collectible acoustic companion to the earlier electric versions of these songs, or as a prized remembrance of concerts gone by, The Wright Songs is sure to be a must-have for Wright’s legions of loyal fans.
Since accepting her first award in 1989, Michelle Wright has walked on stage in music centres like Toronto and Los Angeles taking home another 40 awards. The Academy of Country Music, the Junos, MuchMusic and the Canadian Country Music Association all have honoured Wright over the years. With 25 Top Ten hits in her homeland (seven of which hit #1), 5 gold and 2 multi-platinum albums, record sales nearing 1,000,000 units in Canada alone, plus touring travel across North America and to Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and Australia, Michelle Wright’s career is one of which many artists can only dream.
