It’s been five years since award-winning country artiste Michelle Wright released new music, but she is coming back with a brand-new album in the works and a special tour for her fans.

Michelle is once again showing why her expressive voice and her distinctive style has earned her 25 top 10 radio hits, more than 40 major awards (including her 2011 induction into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame) and sold millions of records.

Fresh off of starting works on a brand-new album, Michelle is on tour as she presents an intimate show called, “An Evening with Michelle Wright” which will make its way to Moose Jaw on Sunday, March 17 at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Michelle whose career spans almost 40 years of touring and releasing award-winning hits, says “An Evening with Michelle Wright” will share her story with her fans while performing some of her new music.

“It’s going to be a very intimate show. I’m going to share all my hit songs that the fans have given me throughout the years as well as some of the new songs that I’ve recorded and some that I will be recording for my album,” she said. “I want to share my story which started when my mother had me when she was 17-years-old. It’s been quite a journey ever since and I just wanted to bring this show to the fans and tell my story.”

Even though her new album is not yet complete, Michelle wants to give fans a taste of what to expect with her upcoming album, which she says already has a great sound.

“The album has not been completed but I’ve released some new songs from the album to give people a taste of what we’re working on. Following the release, we put together this tour to get out there with the fans. After this tour, I’ll get back into the studio to finish up the album.”

Last year, Michelle released a few songs from the album. She said the songs are already receiving positive reviews. She also noted that a Saskatchewan producer worked on the new songs, which she is already very proud of.

“The feedback has been great for the songs we’ve already released. The songs have been well produced. My good friend from Saskatchewan, Bob Funk, produced those songs for me. They sound fantastic and people enjoy having new music from me.”

Michelle has won countless awards and performed across the world. She says Moose Jaw has been a popular performance destination for her tours.

“I’ve been coming to Moose Jaw since 1985. I’ve played all the bars on the corner to the theatres! My career has taken me across the world and Moose Jaw has been one of those popular locations.”

She hopes that from this tour, her fans will get to know more about her and her story.

“From this intimate evening with me, I hope the audience will get to know a little bit more about me and the journey I’ve been on for almost 40 years. This year is will be the 39th year since I’ve been on the road now and I’m looking forward to seeing the fans and them learning more about me.”

She thanks her fans for a wonderful career and looks forward to the rest of her music journey.

“I want to thank my fans for all the years, and I hope they’ll come out and have some fun with me!”
