Amanda Shires Changes That Nashville Sound

In the year and a half since Shires last visited World Cafe, she's finished her Masters of Fine Arts, raised a toddler, made a new record, won Emerging Artist of the Year at the Americana Music Awards, toured in her husband Jason Isbell's band, and called up a country radio station to give them a piece of her mind after hearing a steady stream of only male voices.Shires shares some of those stories, and performs live music from her new record To The Sunset.
