"I want to say Thank You for the incredible job Shannon and Heather Slaughter did on Never Just a Song.  I'm so proud of it.  The harmonies brought another dimension to it and it just turned out better than I could've imagined.  I hope to catch them the next time they perform here."  ~~ Pam Tillis

"I've known Shannon and Heather for a long time.  I also know that they are incredibly talented and that their music is full of heart and soul.  They prove all of that and more with this record.  A MUST HAVE!" ~~ Shawn Lane (Blue Highway)

"Shannon and Heather Slaughter have been making great bluegrass music for some time now with their band County Clare, but this recording raises the bar quite a few notches, not only for Shannon and Heather but for the rest of us who tried to play bluegrass music as well. Heather is a fantastic vocalist and extraordinarily versatile. Her voice is equally at home with straight-ahead bluegrass or country, as is Shannon's dead-on baritone. You'd be hard pressed to find two better vocalists in any group. The fact that they are spouses gives it even more emotional depth. In addition, Shannon is one of the most fluid lead and rhythm guitar players in bluegrass music. The groove here is always tight, and that owes a great deal to Mr. Slaughter being in the house. This is truly one of the best recordings of 2015 in my opinion and hopefully will bring the Slaughters what they so richly deserve: a place at the forefront of bluegrass music."  ~~ Tim Stafford (Blue Highway)

"Shannon and Heather have a great new record on their hands!  Solid songs showcasing vocal chops that are powerful when they need be and an understated appropriateness that makes them sound like classics.  I was thrilled to get to be a part of this project!"  ~~  Randy Kohrs

"I highly recommend this new cd to anyone who loves good bluegrass music, I especially enjoyed the original material, congrats on another fine cd!"  ~~~ Aubrey Haynie

The latest release from Shannon and Heather Slaughter, Never Just a Song, is here.  This CD, featuring the smooth voices and ultra-tight harmonies long attributed to this duo focuses on fresh, original material (the Slaughters wrote or co-wrote 8 of the 14 cuts), innovative arrangements, and soulful instrumentation.  Other musicians and singers on this project include an A-List of industry greats -- Randy Kohrs, Ron Stewart, Melonie Cannon, Ron Inscore, Trevor Watson, Justin Jenkins, Tim Crouch, Tracy Burcham, Doug Jernigan, and Cliff Bailey.
