Info for A Country Soul



'The beloved actor, singer and all-round entertainer Shane Richie will fulfill a lifelong ambition when he releases his contemporary country music album ‘A Country Soul’ on November 10th.

With ‘A Country Soul’, Shane Richie has made a record that’s true to him and true to his passions. It’s a collection of interpretations of his favourite country, and country-ish, tunes, topped off with a handful of originals.

At the heart of the album are Shane’s authentic performances of some of the classics of the 21st century country music scene. Songs such as ‘Heartache on the Dance Floor’ (Jon Pardi), ‘Wave On Wave’ (Pat Green), ‘What Hurts The Most’ (Rascal Flatts), ‘I Loved Her First’ (Heartland) and ‘Wagon Wheel’ (Darius Rucker) are smash hits in their homeland, with audiences falling head over heels for their combination of open emotion and highly accomplished songwriting.

‘A Country Soul’ also finds Shane reimagining other old favourites so they fit seamlessly into the album’s style. His take on Nik Kershaw’s ‘I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’ switches the original’s shiny 80s production in favour of a boot-stomping Pogues-esque vibe which reflects his Irish roots.. Given the context, it’s only natural that Shane’s take on ‘Drift Away’ feels equally as close to Dobie Gray’s 1973 favourite as it does to Uncle Kracker’s crossover smash from 2003.

Earning their places among such hallowed cuts are some brand new compositions, including ‘Shut Up (Cause All I Want Is You)’ which Shane wrote with his son, Rixton frontman Jake Roche, and ‘That Bottle Ain’t Your Friend’ which examines the struggles of alcoholism.

Initially disinterested by the idea of running through the usual covers, Shane was instead offered carte blanche to make the album he wanted to make. Cue a country music passion project, unwavering support from his new record label, and sessions with London-based producer Nick Southwood, a country fan with the Nashville feel.
