New Music From Melonie Cannon

Melonie Cannon
Melonie Cannon

Rural Rhythm Records is very proud to announce the first single radio release by MELONIE CANNON titled I Call It Gone.” The song is from Melonie’s highly anticipated upcoming new album titled, “AND THE WHEELS TURN” set for release on October 7, 2008. “Melonie is an amazingly gifted and talented individual and we are thrilled to have Melonie as part of our growing Rural Rhythm Records family.”

AND THE WHEELS TURN is the perfect vehicle for Melonie’s pure and powerful voice to shine as she moves through a variety of hand picked songs that showcase her soulful down home vocal style including the up-tempo, fun and liberating first single, “I Call It Gone.” Other album highlights include the passionate and reflective “Cactus In A Coffee Can”, “I’ve Seen Enough of What’s Behind Me” written by Ronnie Bowman and Tammy Rogers King, and “Mary Magdalene (Why You Cryin’), co-written by Ronnie Bowman, Melonie Cannon, Marla Cannon-Goodman and Buddy Cannon.

Also included is “Back to Earth” the beautiful duet performed with and written by country legend Willie Nelson. “Melonie Cannon is one of the best singers I know. Her new bluegrass album is fantastic. I love her voice anyway, but singing with a great bluegrass band was a good idea. They blend well together. The fact that I got to sing with her on a song I wrote makes it even better. Go Melonie,” said Willie.

The album is backed by an impressive list of musicians that reads like a “Who’s Who” from the Bluegrass & Acoustic music world including: Dan Tyminski, Adam Steffey, Tim Stafford, Randy Kohrs, Aubrey Haynie, Wyatt Rice, Jody King, Barry Bales, Deanie Richardson, and background vocals by Ronnie Bowman, Garnet Imes Bowman, Sonya Isaacs and more. Dan Tyminski stated, “Melonie Cannon’s heartfelt vocals will make you want to listen to her songs again and again.

Raised in the wings of the Grand Ole Opry, Melonie mingled as a young girl with the royalty of country music. She knew them through her father, songwriter and producer Buddy Cannon, a giant himself in Nashville, “Melonie’s voice is a gift, not just to her but to everyone who hears her sing. There are those who are great technical singers and then there are those whose voices transport a listener from where they are into the heart of the song. Melonie’s voice lives there. She was just fourteen when she sang on her first recording session and since then has appeared on many major artist albums including: Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, Sammy Kershaw, John Michael Montgomery, and many more.Melonie’s impressive debut solo album in 2004 received a very warm welcome by the media, radio, her peers and especially bluegrass and country music fans. AND THE WHEELS TURN again for Melonie as she clearly establishes herself as new important emerging artist out from the shadows of those major artists that have known what some are now just discovering – MELONIE CANNON has arrived!
