ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There is only one way to experience Mary Ann Kennedy - The Trail Less Traveled. Just listen to it. There is no format for it. There is no category for it. There is no precedent for it.

There are very few people in this world whose lives have not been irrevocably changed by a relationship with an animal. This new work by Mary Ann captures those significant moments in every song. From her tranquil farm in Middle Tennessee, Mary Ann sees, breathes and feels the strength of nature, the communication between and among animals and converts both to lyrics, music and arrangements with amazing clarity. It captivates the listener.

Mary Ann has 20+ years of traditional success in the country and pop fields with cuts by Emmy Lou Harris, Sting, Art Garfunkel, Reba McEntire, Patty Loveless, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Restless Heart, LeaAnn Rimes and Pam Tillis, among others. Her first grammy nomination was for her single, "Ring On Her Finger, Time On Her Hands," recorded by Lee Greenwood and Reba. Restless Heart's "I'll Still Be Loving You" earned a second grammy nomination for Mary Ann and co-writers Pam Rose and Pat Bunch.

"The songs on this new CD were inspired by the deaths of my two soul-mates: my dear 15-year-old pug, Choy, and my forever-friend, Tonka, the colt I raised and rode for 9 years. Both their souls flew away together in August, 2000," Mary Ann explained. "The healing process is an amazing thing."

This new project is innovative, hauntingly spiritual, sometimes hilarious and powerfully insightful. Every horse lover will smile at "I Wish I Had a Horse," about Mary Ann's childhood dream; every horse owner will relate all too closely to the universal truth of horse ownership, "Gotta Go Feed"; and no one can sit still to the syncopation of "Paso Fino." "Goodbye", a painfully emotional experience common to all animal owners, will stay with the listener long after the music ends - but, then, so will the silliness of the haughty "Barn Cat." Each cut on this CD evokes a new memory or emotion.

Just listen to it.

Katy Pistole

Fabulous music, heartthumping lyrics
I love the whole album. I've now given it to everyone I can think of! I play it everyday while I "play" with my horses. They love it too. My Arab neighs in response to "Gotta Go Feed." Keep it up Mary Ann. Can't wait for the next one.

Paints the picture in music
Mary Ann Kennedy has made a tremendous effort to paint you a picture of “A Trail less Traveled. She brushes a canvas with her melodic harmonizing and at some times haunting Sounds. You can see every picture with your eyes close. The music is spirited with fun and mischievous aspects. She has a time taking you around every rhythmic turn and guitar pickin straight-away’s. She pulls you in because her hook is like a big juicy candy coated red apple that you just have to bite. From Allison Krauss to vintage Linda Ronstadt to aspects of American Indian tones and a wee bit of the Irish. This Country has no borders and has its feel good foot thumpin songs as well as the one’s that pull you in and make you feel like you are right on the range looking at the sunset. We all need to wander down this road from time to time to lighten our load recharge our batteries and count our blessings. Put it in hit random and enjoy the ride down “A Trail less Traveled". Once you hit play, it will be hard to take to it out.

The Road Less Traveled

Great--makes me laugh and cry.
I ordered 5 of these to send to my friends and have received their sincere "thanks" and "where did you get this?" They are having a gathering of people that they have riden with for 20 years and plan to play the CD. If you love animals you will love this and if you happen to have a Paso Fino well---.

I received my new CD, The trail less traveled and it was great to hear these songs about our beloved friends. I especially feel great when listening to the title song and I want a horse. It brought back some special feelings I had forgotten about when I was a young girl and wanted a horse. Unfortunately, I didn't get one until I was 21. Thanks for the the wonderful music on this CD and I look forward to hearing it everyday. Susan

Susan Hartman

I love it
I have always loved horses and have wanted one for as long as I can remember. Some of her songs are talking about me. I also love dogs and all animals and nature. She has a great voice and I love her style and lyrics.
