Image635584491704852571The new album, NEVER JUST A SONG, featuring the smooth voices and ultra-tight harmonies by Shannon and Heather Slaughter is now released.

The husband and wife duo focuses on fresh, original material and also wrote or co-wrote 8 of the 14 tracks.

Shannon and Heather’s innovative arrangements and soulful instrumentation shine on cuts like their recently released single, “Moonshiner,” that made its debut at #10 on this week’s Bluegrass Today Top 20 Song Chart.

What folks are saying…

"Shannon and Heather Slaughter have been making great bluegrass music for some time now with their band County Clare, but this recording raises the bar quite a few notches, not only for Shannon and Heather, but for the rest of us who tried to play bluegrass music as well. Heather is a fantastic vocalist and extraordinarily versatile. Her voice is equally at home with straight-ahead bluegrass or country, as is Shannon's dead-on baritone. You'd be hard pressed to find two better vocalists in any group. The fact that they are spouses gives it even more emotional depth. In addition, Shannon is one of the most fluid lead and rhythm guitar players in bluegrass music. The groove here is always tight, and that owes a great deal to Mr. Slaughter being in the house. This is truly one of the best recordings of 2015 in my opinion and hopefully will bring the Slaughters what they so richly deserve: a place at the forefront of bluegrass music." - Tim Stafford (Blue Highway)

"Shannon and Heather have a great new record on their hands! Solid songs showcasing vocal chops that are powerful when they need be and an understated appropriateness that makes them sound like classics. I was thrilled to get to be a part of this project!" - Randy Kohrs

"I highly recommend this new cd to anyone who loves good bluegrass music, I especially enjoyed the original material, congrats on another fine cd!" - Aubrey Haynie
