SHeDAISY SHeDAISY makes a rare, Southeast appearance.

Fayetteville will get a real treat this Saturday when the Nashville, female trio SHeDAISY makes their only stop in the entire Southeast on a very limited 2009 tour. Their sound is a traditional country style blended with flavors of pop and rock and every other influence imaginable.

The three girls in SHeDAISY are all sisters originally from Utah named Kristyn, Kelsi, and Kassidy. Because of their family connection, the girls chose their unusual name, derived from a Navajo Indian term meaning “my little sister”.

In 1989, they moved to Nashville and released their first album 10 years later. Since signing to Lyric Street Records in 1999, SHeDAISY has released four Top 10 Country albums which spawned twelve Top 40 Country singles.

Something rarely seen in modern-day Nashville is that Kristyn has written or co-written all of the music the girls have ever recorded, save for 2 or 3 tracks that were recorded for various other projects. They don't comb through 5,000 songs to find the ones that somebody else may think are "hits." They have made their own brand of country music, without apology, whether it fits into a single genre or not. SHeDAISY makes no bones about straddling traditional country music and a contemporary pop sound.

The "girls", as they are affectionately referred to by their family, friends, and the folks at their record label will be debuting new material from their first new album in over 4 years, entitled, A Story To Tell. Although not scheduled for release until early 2010, they are excited to give the audience something new to enjoy, in addition to all of their hits from the past decade. Their biggest hits include, Little Good Byes; I Will…But; Don’t Worry ‘bout a Thing; and Passenger Seat.

Local favorite, Jason Bowen, is the opening act. He will be playing a variety of original country music he has written with his band. Amphitheater director, Brian Wismer, commented on the lineup. “SHeDAISY will be a really fun concert, and a great way to close out the 2009 concert series. Jason Bowen has a lot of local support too, so we expect a good turnout and a good time for everyone.”

Tickets are still available at The Train Depot in Fayetteville starting at $30. For more information, call 770-719-4173 or visit
