Shannon Whitworth Shows Off Her New “Love”


Shannon Whitworth first caught my attention in 2008 when I was traveling through Asheville, N.C., on a business trip. She was playing a laid-back show at a rural pottery store, and as soon as I heard that voice, I was hooked. Even better, the album turned out to be a bounty of beautiful and well-crafted original material. Since then, she’s stretched beyond her acoustic base, when she often accompanied herself on a banjo, to a thicker sound, as on her new single, “You Are in Love.” Despite the cheerful title, this song isn’t hopefully romantic, but it does capture that feeling of knowing somebody better than they know themselves. Check out “You Are in Love.”
