Info zu Milestone

Die kanadische Country Music Hall of Famerin Michelle Wright mit ihrem neuen Album "Milestone".

Michelle Wright gehört seit ihrem Debüt im Jahre 1988 zu den erfolgreichsten Country-Musikern Kanadas. Ihre größten Erfolge feierte sie in den 1990er Jahren als ihr auch einige Hits in den US-amerikanischen Country-Charts gelang. Mit ihrem bekanntesten Song »Take It Like a Man« hatte sie hier 1992 einen Top-10-Hit. Zwischen 1990 und 2000 gelangen ihr insgesamt zehn US-Hits, »New Kind of Love« (1990) und »He Would Be Sixteen« (1992) erreichten immerhin noch die Top 40.

Darüber hinaus erhielt sie 1992 bei den ACM Awards als erste Kanadierin die Auszeichnung als Newcomerin des Jahres. Weitaus größer waren Wrights Erfolge in ihrer Heimat Kanada. Dort gelangen ihr ab 1986 etliche große Hits in den Country-Charts. »Take It Like a Man«, »One Time Around« (1992), »Guitar Talk, One Good Man« (1994), »Nobody's Girl« and »Crank My Tractor« (1996) standen auf Platz eins. Letztmals in den Top 10 wurde sie 2000 mit »I Surrender« notiert. Die wichtigste Country-Auszeichnung Kanadas, die Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA), konnte Wright gleich mehrfach in Empfang nehmen. So wurde sie zwischen 1990 und 1993 gleich vier Mal als Sängerin des Jahres ausgezeichnet.

Michelle Wright
Like so many country artists, Michelle Wright cut her teeth playing six nights a week in clubs throughout Canada. In 1988, after teaming with Savannah Records President Brian Ferriman, Savannah Records released her first CD, Do Right By Me, in Canada. Michelle and her band set off to tour North America.

Do Right By Me was a major hit in her homeland, with seven charting singles and over 40,000 copies sold. That success opened many doors, landing her a deal with the brand new Arista/Nashville label. Arista/Nashville made Michelle one of its flagship artists, and, in 1990, they released her first U.S. album, Michelle Wright. American audiences enthusiastically responded to “that girl singer from up north with the snow in her videos.” Her first single, “New Kind Of Love,” became her first top thirty American hit.

In 1992, Arista released her second CD Now & Then, producing a total of six singles including “One Time Around,” “Guitar Talk,” “He Would Be Sixteen,” and the song that changed everything, “Take It Like A Man.” After the latter was released in February 1992, Michelle became the first Canadian‐born artist in the modern era of country music to have a Top Ten hit in America. She went on to secure a number one video on CMT‐USA (also for “Take It Like A Man”) as well as winning the Academy of Country Music’s “Top New Female Vocalist” award.The song also catapulted Michelle to superstardom, receiving a total of twelve music industry awards, including the 1993 Canadian Country Music Association’s Fans’ Choice Entertainer of The Year Award, and double platinum honors for Now & Then the same year.

Her career has been a dream come true. Her total of twelve album releases have sold millions of copies and produced twenty‐five Top Ten radio hits. She went on to win a total of 18 CCMA Awards. Michelle enjoys an international career that has seen her grace concert stages across North America, Europe, Africa, South America, Australia, and Asia. To date, she has garnered forty major awards, including her 2011 induction into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
