On her national debut ‘Bridges,' 20-year-old singer and songwriter Mary Sarah made history by being the youngest artist to record an album of duets with some of country music’s biggest names, on 12 captivating songs.
Amazed by the Texas ingénue’s voice and talent, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Vince Gill, the Oak Ridge Boys, the late Ray Price and others all signed on to sing with Mary Sarah on their most iconic hits. Dolly’s “Jolene,” Willie’s “Crazy” and Merle’s “The Fightin’ Side of Me” are just a few of the songs interpreted by Mary Sarah and her A-list collaborators. Produced by Kent Wells, long time guitarist, producer, and band leader for Dolly Parton, the project was also overseen by executive producer, the late Freddy Powers who helped Mary Sarah assemble her dream team of collaborators.
With glowing reviews from outlets including The Associated Press and The New York Times, Mary Sarah’s most recent national spotlight came through NBC’s The Voice where she finished in 5th place overall while competing on #TeamBlake, on Season 10 - 2016.
Following a week of performances and media appearances during CMA Fest and making several “Best Dressed” lists from walking the CMT Music Award"s Pink Carpet, she is back to pen and paper writing for a new project due out in 2017.
Mary Sarah made her Grand Ole Opry debut on May 31, 2016, and looks forward to gracing the iconic stage more frequently in the future.
