Amanda Shires is a singing, songwriting, fiddle-playing damn Texan. She is also the Americana Awards Emerging Artist Of The Year.

Amanda has been touring and playing music for 20 years, first as a fiddle player with the Texas Playboys and Billy Joe Shaver, then as a singer-songwriter in her own right. She is also a member of The 400 Unit, the formidable backing band for her husband, Jason Isbell.

Amanda Shires | 8:00 PM
Amanda Shires is not an entertainer. She isn’t looking to help listeners escape their everyday lives or soundtrack celebrations. She isn’t reaching for celebrity, and she isn’t concerned with cultivating a personal brand. She is an artist in the true sense of the word, meaning she creates because she has a real need for the process of creating.

That is not to say that the songs on My Piece Of Land aren’t entertaining, but that quality is a by-product. The real intention here is to relate.

Ms. Shires began her career as a teenager playing fiddle with the Texas Playboys. Since then, she’s toured and recorded with John Prine, Billy Joe Shaver, Todd Snider, Justin Townes Earle, Shovels & Rope, and most recently her husband Jason Isbell.

Along the way she’s made three solo albums, each serving to document a particular period in her life while improving on the perceptive qualities of the previous record. more >>>
