The rising Americana singer-songwriter flips the script on her ambitious seventh LP, with help from husband Jason Isbell. Being mediocre was never an option for Amanda Shires, drafted at 15 into the ranks of western swing legends the Texas Playboys – playing fiddle no less, just like late bandleader Bob Wills. When she shifted from sidewoman to singer-songwriter, she kept aiming high. One of her best tunes has a narrative involving Leonard Cohen.

The most quietly devastating song I heard last year was the one where Jason Isbell starts to come to terms with the idea of death, the one thing that can tear him away from his life. In close harmony, Isbell’s wife, Amanda Shires, sings those exact same words. They’re singing to each other, about each other, and it knocks me out every time

Album · 2018 · 10 Songs. Nashville-based singer-songwriter and violinist Amanda Shires’ take on Americana is heavy on poetry and introspection. With a breathy, earnest yowl that recalls a young Dolly Parton, Shires sounds commanding on the hurts-to-love-you opener Parking Lot Pirouette and the playful Southern rocker Break Out the Champagne, while producer David Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton) shines up her more vulnerable side on Mirror Mirror

A dictionary and a paper shredder are crucial to Amanda Shires’ songwriting process. The dictionary - a 1940s model around six inches thick - to inspire and clarify, the shredder to desiccate any lyrics the singer-violinist deems unworthy. I feel like if I died in some tragic way, I would hate for anybody to see those piss-poor ideas, says Shires, who turns some of her discarded journal pages into compost for her tomato plants. Her careful pruning - not to mention a 2017 . degree in poetry - worked wonders on the 10 precise and passionate songs populating her seventh album, To The Sunset (out 8/3), which features a guitar assist from hubby and former Drive-By Truckers member Jason Isbell. Shires spoke to EW from her laundry room about the new record, frightful plane rides, and poetry, as she struggled to fit two touring operations’ worth of clothes into one suitcase.

One of the highlights of Amanda Shires' new album To the Sunset, "Break Out the Champagne" was inspired in part by an in-flight emergency on a plane. adios!" The song swirls various personal calamities into a worldview. Those two songs make up only a small part of the world Shires develops on To the Sunset. Love stories play their part, and Shires writes the memorable phrases to keep hers outside the norm. On the album's first track, "Parking Lot Pirouette" provides one of those unforgettable phrases.
