Delnora first came to Nashville as an A&R signing for a Major Record Label. Two subsequent deals and a few independent projects helped pave the way to refining her craft. Her undeniable growth shines through as both an Artist and a Songwriter on this new solo album, "MY SONG".
Delnora wrote the backbone of the album - 6 of the 10 originals - with Reed Nielsen (who's written hits for Vince Gill, Lorrie Morgan, Tim McGraw, Billy Ray Cyrus, Montgomery Gentry, Joe Nichols, Emerson Drive, Kenny Rogers, Sonya Isaacs and Confederate Railroad, just to name a few). The title cut, "My Song", and "Good Intentions" were co-written with Jeff Dayton (best known for his work as Glen Campbell's guitar player). "Battlecry", co-written with Ashley Roxanne Wells, reflects the fusion of Americana & Indie/Pop as does "Hot Air Balloon Ride", which was co-written with Merry Ellen Kirk.
The album features a host of skilled musicians:
Harry Smith - Guitar (Clay Walker)
Jim Medlin - Keyboard (Martina McBride)
Glen Snow - Bass (Martina McBride)
William Ellis - Drums (Montgomery/Gentry)
Ken Smith - Drums (Clay Walker)
Tyler Collins - Dobro/Banjo (Darin & Brooke Aldrige)
Paul Harrigill - Mandolin/Banjo (Flatt Lonesome *courtesy of Pisgah Ridge/Mountain Home Records)
Charli Robertson - Fiddle (Flatt Lonesome *courtesy of Pisgah Ridge/Mountain Home Records)
Reed Nielson - Acoustic Guitar on "Closer"
Paul Nelson - Cello (Belmont University - "Cellist to Stars")
All songs were Mastered and Recorded by Harry Smith at 3GH Productions.
Produced by Harry Smith and Delnora Reed
Delnora is a PERFORMING/Songwriter so it's only natural that "My Song" is a true reflection of the energy that she brings to her 'live' show and yet another example of what happens when award-winning Songwriters team up to write the music they feel and enjoy.
