For those who have followed McNally’s nearly twenty year career, the essence of what she brings to Americana Blues music is all packed into her performance. McNally’s voice oozes with nostalgia of Blues music history to almost hypnotize and transports her audience back to a time when life was simple and music was outlaw. With a large and growing catalogue of songs and a star-studded list of peers with whom she has written, recorded and toured with, McNally continues to create music that transcends.

When Shannon McNally signed with the artist collective Blue Rose Music, she was given the option of recording … well, whatever she wanted. Which would be a dream come true for most of us, corporate backing with no demands on our artistic output. But where many singer/songwriters would choose to record their own material, McNally—who already has several releases of original material under her belt going back nearly two decades—chose to record not only an album of covers, but an album of songs originally cut by one of the most iconic country legends ever, and a male legend at that.

The Waylon Sessions is McNally’s upcoming album of Waylon Jennings material on Compass Records, set to drop on May 28. With tracks like “Only Daddy That’ll Walk the Line,” “I’ve Always Been Crazy,” and the current lead single, “Ain’t Livin’ Long Like This,” McNally enlisted friends Rodney Crowell, Buddy Miller, Lukas Nelson, and Jennings’ widow Jessi Colter to help out, as well as a top-notch band assembled by guitarist Kenny Vaughan of Marty Stuart’s Fabulous Superlatives.

Listen to “I Ain’t Living Long Like This” Written by Rodney Crowell Made Famous by Waylon Jennings sung by Shannon McNally on the new album, ‘The Waylon Sessions,’ out on Compass Records.
