It’s the much-anticipated follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut, Sounds So Good, which garnered spots on many publications’ “Best of” lists. The Wall Street Journal has called her “a potential Loretta Lynn for a new generation.” She appears poised for stellar accolades for “Where Country Grows.” The Washington Post has already named her one of five new artists to watch in 2011, noting, “…Shepherd has a voice that is instantly recognizable – a sharp twang that she brandishes like a weapon.”
