Gotta tell you about someone new – well, new to me anyway. I got to listen to Abbey Cone today. I think she is awesome. She is one of our new young artists, who is helping to bring back the country music a lot of us miss. And, it should be no surprise to our regular readers when we tell you that she’s from Texas. So much great music keeps coming out of Texas, and Abbey is merely the latest addition to that.
That’s the video for the first song I listened to from Abbey. It is called “Love Like Him Again”. It’s a great song! It’s beautiful, it’s well written, and entrancingly sung, there is nothing about it that isn’t 100 percent likeable. This is an artist who sings just like it is the most natural thing in the world for her to do. There aren’t a lot of songs, or a lot of artists, that make you want to listen to ever word. Abbey does. Listening to her sing is pure joy.The biggest surprise for me was the first line of the bio on her web site…it starts out “She’s only sixteen years old”… I wanted to go ‘seriously’ ?? She has got more maturity and personality in her vocals than some of most seasoned artists. And, she writes most of her music! I loved the last night of her bio, where she said, “Ultimately on this music journey, it’s not about me letting people into my world, it’s about people letting me into theirs through my music.” What a great philosophy for this talented young lady to be sharing with all of us!

She has an album coming out on July 10, it is titled “Abbey”. The album was produced by Rocky Gribble and Curtis Jones. She is country, but you can definitely hear a bit of soul and even blues in her vocals. I mentioned earlier that she writes, proof of that is in the fact that she wrote 15 of the 16 songs on this new album.
In addition to her web site, I hope you will all visit her Facebook page, and please remember to “Like” it while you are there! Take a minute to watch her videos on YouTube, too. You will want to follow her on Twitter @abbeycone. If you aren’t already following Country’s Chatter on Twitter, we’d love to have you. You will find us @countryschatter.
Back with more soon. Hope you will check out Abbey’s social media sites, and let me know what you think of her. I think she has a very bright future ahead!
