In 2020, her sister Cathy insisted she come to CRS in Nashville. It wasn’t long Shelley found herself again in the mist of music radio professionals asking when they could hear something new. It was then Shelley ran into long time friend Dean Miller, who was quick to announce he was still producing music. Shelley’s desire for entering the music industry once again was ignited.
Shortly after returning from Nashville, the Pandemic hit. This is when the full flame began once again for Shelley’s professional career. With her strong faith and God given gift she said, “I don’t want to die and have to explain to God why I haven’t given everything I’ve got to my music career. I am going to go back into the industry with my current knowledge and find a way to bring my gift to others”.
In the fall of 2020, the first single from the 4 song LP, produced by Dean Miller, son of famous Roger Miller, Dreams and Gasoline was released. This is a co write with Travis Pickering, friend and guitarist. A song about igniting your lost dreams. When the pandemic hit, Shelley was more than determined to get back to her God given gift and continue chasing her dream of music. Shelley’s songs were emailed to Dean and taken to Beaird Music Group, Nashville, TN. Taking a song from an acoustic level to full production is an art. Add some of Nashville’s greatest pickers and players like Pat McGrath, Billy Noble, Eli Beaird, Scotty Sanders, Grady Saxman and Kenny Greenberg who have worked with some big names like Taylor Swift, Amy Grant, Brooks & Dunn, Wynonna, Toby Keith, Faith Hill just to name a few, and you have some great music. Shelley joined the sessions by zoom, then the tracks were emailed to MCC Studio in Calgary AB. Once there, Shelley recorded the vocal tracks with Grammy Award nominee Johnny Gasperic, then back to Nashville for mixing and mastering.
