Shannon Slaughter has consistently released quality music during his time on the national scene, from several years with the Lonesome River Band to more recent albums with wife Heather and his own band County Clare. His latest album, Never Standing Still, is billed as a solo effort (his second), and does well to showcase both Slaughter’s warm vocals and his original songwriting.” - John Curtis Goad

Bluegrass Today

f you’re in the market for a bluegrass album that flows with a gentle ease and smooth vocals, look no further than the latest from Shannon Slaughter. While there are a couple tracks that fall outside that “gentle and smooth” description (a fairly torrid cover of Merle Haggard’s “Movin’ On” and a bluesy duet with Shannon’s wife Heather on “Better Move It On Home”), it’s a style that suits Slaughter well and results in arguably his best album to date.”

Shannon Slaughter’s Hold On To Your Heart is a wonderful collection… filled with great songs, stellar musicians, and heartfelt singing that blesses the soul.”” - Ronnie Bowman
Most of the 15 numbers are co-writes, the best of them (notably the powerful opener, "You Can't Outrun the River," composed with luminaries Tim Stafford and Ronnie Bowman) as good as any new bluegrass tunes recorded recently. The musicianship is first-rate. ”
