- Sherrie played in the "Secrets of the
Heart" series at the
Saffire restaurant, located at The Factory in Franklin, TN on January
12, 2003. This show was an acoustic, in-the-round style
that also featured co-writer, Will Rambeaux, as well as new and
developing artist/songwriter, Jace Everitt. Sherrie used the
intimate audience setting to try out a number of new songs that she's
been working on, including: "Don't Let A Sleeping Dog Lie,"
Cowgirl," "This Town Is That Small," "Fools Like
Us," and a really
awesome piece of writing called, "Streets Of Heaven."
played a few old favorites, such as "Put Your Heart Into
Somethin' Missin' In The Kissin'," and "Lucky In Love."
In talking to her after the performance (so
this is straight
from the 'proverbial horse's mouth'), she said that she'd recently
signed to the new BBR label (whose roster also includes Chad Brock),
and is hoping to have a new CD (tentatively entitled "Ride'm
Cowgirl") out around March or April of this year in the States.
said they expected the first single to be "Streets Of
is a great choice, as it's a very touching, well-written, and
heart-wrenching kind of ballad.) Will Rambeaux also made mention
an effort to get Sherrie playing out more often, in these type of
"songwriter's night" settings, in anticipation of this new
Hopefully, once this new release is out, she'll be back out on the
road promoting with full length concerts.
- Sherrie Austin recently performed at the Fitzgerald's Casino in
Tunica, Mississippi on September 14, 2002. With this casino's
being "The Luck of the Irish," her show was a free event for
part of a special "Halfway to St. Patrick's Day"
set consisted of all the traditional Sherrie Austin favorites, such as
Love," "Jolene," and "Never Been Kissed."
- Sherrie is starting to do a few tour dates here and there, while
she gets set
up with her new management company. So, perhaps one of these
soon, she'll have more going on again. Her official website is
beginning to post some updates a little at a time, including a letter
from Sherrie to the fans, the link is just:

- Sherrie Austin played a lively 7-song set for Fan
Fair 2002, at the
Greased Lightning Riverfront Park Stages, on June 13th. Her song
list included recent hits such as "Jolene" and "Goin'
...as well as older favorites, like "Never Been Kissed" and
Love." She also did a red-hot version of one of her newer
crowd-pleasers; a cover version of the old Aretha Franklin tune,
Of A Preacherman." After her set, Sherrie greeted her
signed autographs by the backstage fence. Her other Fan Fair
for the festival include a public Q&A session at the historic
Auditorium on June 13th, as well as a 2-hour Meet &
session at the Tower Records inside of the Nashville Convention
Center on June 16th.
- "In The Meantime"
- Sherrie has released "In The
Meantime" and it looks like it could make it in the airplay
charts (with a little bit luck) in
Germany. The only country music titles, I can think of, who made in
in the airplay charts in Germany within the last 12 month were Faith
"There You'll Be", LeAnn Rimes "Can't fight the
moonlight" and Lonestar's "Amazed".

- Excerpt from
"Country Music Live" magazine
- Sherrie Austin went to Nashville
with the dream of being a songwriter. Her first two albums
earned her artistic credibility as both a songwriter and a
performer. Now, with a new album on a new
label Austin displays her talents with a renewed energy and
- Followin' a feelin' Austin's
latest offering, and her first on WE Records, is the result of a year
of introspection and
self- examination. Austin probed the
depth of her emotion to co-write nine of the 10 songs in the collection.
The themes are familiar ones, touching on life, love and broken hearts,
but she gives them a unique touch. What makes this CD truly special,
though is Austin's vocal versatility. She changes personas with the
greatest of ease, switching from contented companion to country siren to
a woman wronged. Producer Will Rambeaux wisely lets Austin's
considerable vocal gifts establish the mood in the arrangements.

Since leaving Arista Records, Sherrié Austin has been

Sherrié, you have a winner here! Folks, if you want REAL,
this is it.
