Shelly Fairchild isn’t new to the industry, but she’s far from old news. And of her latest release Buffalo, she wants everyone to know, “This is the most honest record I’ve ever made.” You’ve been hearing her lead track “Mississippi Turnpike” for some time now on Lightning 100. Now, Fairchild has graced us with a music video as southern as the title. Watch the video below!
A staple in the Nashville music community, Fairchild hit the scene to much acclaim in 2005 with her debut album Ride. The project introduced the young artist’s soulful, gospel-tinged brand of alternative country and spawned a Top 40 hit with “You Don’t Lie Here Anymore.” She toured with some of the biggest names in the format, including Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw, and began to dig her roots in the industry. She again found success in her second release, Ruby’s Money, which came steeped in a thick groove with elements of funk – but it’s Buffalo that marks a milestone in her life and career.
