I was blessed when Shantell reached out to me. The more I got to listen to her music and read her bio and lyrics I became ever so intrigued to learn more.
But first, Shantell has a new album coming out on 12/17/2013 titled “Better At Goodbye” that in my opinion is a MUST have! Yet I’ll further comment on the new album a bit later as I want to share with you more about the artist.
Shantell Ogden’s songs have been recorded by multiple artists, receiving airplay on more than 145 commercial country radio stations nationwide. “Great American Song” reached the Top 50 Music Row Breakout Chart in 2012, and another of her tunes broke onto the Top 100 Music Row Charts in 2011. Four of her songs were featured on the CW’s popular TV series Hart of Dixie and another was included in the 2013 feature film Storm Rider.
As you can see this is one talented artist that is swiftly making a name for herself in country music.
Now back to her soon to be released album. There are 8 songs on the album of which “The Lie I Tell Myself” and “Better At Goodbye” are two of my favorites.
Shantell has been at her best on ballads and she immediately shows this off on the lead single and title track “Better At Goodbye” It’s such a wonderful song. I’ll be surprised if no one elects to cut the song next year or two. I see Faith Hill or Sara Evans signing up for this one.
Shantell sings quite well by showcasing a vocal many of the “young guns” could learn from while “Love Shouldn’t Hurt” is one song about how ”Love Shouldn’t Hurt” and in its true honest fashion conquers all, no matter how angry and mad we can feel at times, when we’re killed with love and kindness, all the anger and negativity simply moves away. It’s a strong message song and Shantell delivers again here.
All in all the album is well worth your listening time and spend.
