Shafer went on to write some of the most momentous country songs of the last four decades, including “I Just Started Hatin’ Cheatin’ Songs Today” (Moe Bandy), “Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind” (George Strait), “All My Ex’s Live in Texas” (George Strait) and “I Wonder Do You Think of Me” (Keith Whitley), and his tribute to his friend, “Lefty’s Gone” (George Strait).

Holly Spears Releases Country Album

Holly Spears Releases Country Album, While Filming Her Acting Debut in the Upcoming Faith-Based Film, “Nail 32




(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) -- Singer-songwriter Holly Spears is pleased to announce the release of her first country EP, Boots and Bling, which is available now at iTunes and www.hollyspears.com. The 8-song EP from Girl on a Mission Music is the follow-up to her 2014 Christian music EP, Audience of One.

"Boots and Bling is my attempt to get back to my roots and embrace who I've grown into,” says Spears. "I grew up in a little country town and dared to moved away from it at the young age of 18. I moved five hours away from everything I had ever known in pursuit of a music career. Back then, I couldn't wait to move to the city. Now, I can't wait to live on more property and get more horses. I grew up as a tomboy, and when I moved away, I became more ‘girly.' Today, I’m a good mix of the two.”

As if she wasn’t busy enough with promoting her new album, Spears is currently in Texas filming the upcoming faith-based film, Nail 32. Along with Spears, the film stars Brad Johnson (Always, Left Behind), Lea Penick (American Hoggers) and more in an exhilarating and emotional true-life story of an ordinary man from north Texas who served an extraordinary purpose. The film depicts the grueling travels of the rodeo circuit, from the backbreaking bull riding to the musical oasis of the honky-tonks. It portrays both the picturesque culture of the American rancher while dispensing cowboy pride and simplistic life solutions. Just as 32 nails attach the shoes to a horse, Nail 32 clenches the importance of men being courageous, honorable, and truly God fearing.

Spears wrote five of the songs on Boots and Bling, many of which will be featured in the upcoming film. On her new EP, Spears examines her life with songs like “Brothers" and a song about her Grandpa called, “Sunshine.” Says Spears, "My ‘Pap' was the glue that held our family together. I could definitely see Jesus in him, as well as an ornery side, which made everyone love him!”

The EP also includes cover versions of John Denver’s “Country Roads," Paula Cole’s “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone” and the Dixie Chicks hit, “Wide Open Spaces” - which Spears calls the theme song of her teen years.

"For so many years, I rejected where I grew up, chasing someone I wasn’t,” says Spears. "Now, I am learning to be at home in my own skin and to embrace all the parts of me - the boots and the bling. My hope is that this album inspires everyone to be proud of who they are and where they come from and to know to their very core that they always belong."

Pull Your Savior In was produced by Ben Surratt and Larry Stephenson and includes Larry Stephenson, Kenny Ingram, Colby Laney, Danny Stewart with special guests Jimmy Fortune, Aubrey Haynie, David Parmley, and Dale Perry. "Celebrating their 25th anniversary with their latest CD, The Larry Stephenson Band has put out a collection of bluegrass and gospel songs that explain the longevity of their success. The songs will also make you feel really good. You can resist feeling good all you want, but I swear, by the time track 7 starts, and the Band eases their way into How Great Thou Art; I promise your ears will tell your soul to smile," says Parchbench in a recent album review.
 
Larry Stephenson has celebrated numerous other awards during his impressive 25 year career including his induction into the Virginia Country Music Hall of Fame, two International Bluegrass Music Association Recorded Event of the Year Awards, the 2012 SPBGMA Mandolin Player of the Year Award, and five SPBGMA Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year Awards.
