Following a long hiatus from the recording studio, in October 2023 Sandy Kelly will release her first solo album in thirty years, in tandem with her self-penned life story, ‘In My Own Words’, published by O’Brien Press The album, ‘Leaving It All Behind’, was recorded at what was Johnny Cash’s personal studio Cash Cabin in Nashville and produced by five- time Grammy Award winning producer, John Carter Cash, alongside Sandy’s son, Willie Kelly and an A-list Nashville session band. Mastered by Pete Lyman (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile, Tanya Tucker, John Prine) at Infrasonic Sound, Nashville. The album’s lead single “How Long Will I Love You” is a cover of The Waterboys hit from their 1990 Album ‘Room To Roam’ and more recently a popular version by Ellie Goulding. However, Sandy’s take is immersed in a classic but contemporary Nashville sound, giving a sneak peek into what’s to follow with her new album this Autumn. Twelve tracks, traversing the lines of classic country and contemporary folk, including re-cut acoustic versions of Sandy’s duets with Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, ‘Woodcarver’ and ‘Against The Wind’, the latter featuring Marty Stuart as a guest musician. As well as a duet with Mike Hanrahan of Stockton’s Wing. ‘Leaving It All Behind’ is a legacy album which will confirm Sandy’s position at the apex of the European country music ladder. “It was my pleasure to sing with my favourite female artist, Sandy Kelly. In America, she has been Ireland’s greatest ambassador. She won the hearts of everyone who saw her. I am honoured to be included as one of the guest artists on her album” – Johnny Cash “Sandy Kelly is, in my opinion, one of the top fifteen female artists in the world” – Willie Nelson “Sandy Kelly has established herself as Ireland’s undisputed Queen of Country Music. She has also consolidated her status as an international star of the highest calibre.” – Colm O’Hare, Hot Press Magazine
